FIT Calculator: Target Heart Rate Calculator

So I've been telling you to get your heart rate up a lot recently and maybe you understand why but maybe you don't.

Here is the rundown as to why you should care:
Knowing your target heart rate lets you measure your initial fitness level and monitor your progress in a fitness program. There is a mathematical equation that allows you to find your resting heart rate and then you multiply it by certain percentages to see where your heart rate should be depending on where you are in your workout. Knowing your THR is like having a free cardio personal trainer.

Luckily, FitSugar has taken the hard work out of it with SugarStats, a new calculator that will let you see what your personal target heart rate is. Check it out here!

That's not all! With the new SugarStats you can also evaluate your calories in a day, see if you're drinking enough water and find out your Body Mass Index.
