Whatis TargetHeartRateZone?
Target Heart
Rate
Zone tells you
the number of times per minute
your heart needs to beat to
achieve a desired workout effect.
It is represented as a percentage
of the maximum number of times
your heart can beat per minute.
Target Zone will vary for each
individual,
depending
on age,
current level of conditioning,
and personal fitness
goals.
The
American Heart Association
recommends working-out at a
Target
Heart Rate
Zone of between
60% and 75% of your maximum
heart rate. A beginner will want to
workout in the 60% range while
a more experienced exerciser will
want to workout in the 70-75%
range. See chart for reference.
EXAMPLE:
For a 42-year-old user: Find age along the bottom of the chart (round to 40), follow age column up to
the target zone bar.
Results:
60% of
maximum
Heart
Rate = 108
Beats Per
Minute,
75% of
maximum
Heart Rate = 135
Beat Per Minute.
