Target Heart Rate Calculator

Your target heart rate is the range that is considered safe for you to work your heart when you do aerobic exercise. Aerobic exercise includes running, cycling, and swimming laps. Your target heart rate is a percentage of what your maximum heart rate should be. The more fit you are, the higher the percentage can go. This calculator uses your age to figure out your target heart rate.
