What is a Exercise Heart Rate Zone?
This is approximately where your heart rate should be when performing aerobic exercise, such as fat burning, especially if you are unfit or a beginner to exercising.

How is this Measured?
Your Exercising Heart Rate Zone is measured by your heart beat
and how fast it is beating during your exercise program. The zone is between 65% to 85% of your maximum heart rate.

This is how your Exercising Heart Rate Zone is calculated: Case Study:
Ms Smith  Age = 35

To get your maximum heart rate you need to subtract your age "35" from 220.
Maximum heart rate = 185
You then calculate 65% of 185 = 120
and 85% of 185 = 157
So Ms Smith's
Exercising Heart Rate Zone is between 120 - 157 beats per minute
