Calculate your Body Mass Index by simply entering in your height in centimetres and weight in kilograms. The Body Mass Index is an indirect measure of body composition, and therefore people who should not use the Body Mass Index are anyone under 18, pregnant or nursing women, frail and sedentary elderly people, competitive athletes, body builders or people who are chronically ill. If you belong to one of these categories, you should consult your doctor about any concerns over your weight.
Each individual is different when it comes how many calories you need each day to lose, maintain or increase weight. Based on your height, weight and activity level the Energy Calculator can estimate this for you.
The best way to get results from your training is to work out what your ideal fat burning heart rate zone is. All you need to do is enter your age and you'll have your Maximum Heart Rate and Fat Burning Zone.
Many of us are the right weight for our height but don't realise it. So what is your ideal weight? Or what weight should you be aiming to achieve? All you need to do is type in your height and frame size, hit calculate and the Ideal Weight Calculator will work it out for you.
If your goal is to increase your fitness levels, it's a good idea to ensure you're always training in your correct heart rate zone. There are five heart rate training zones available on the site to ensure when you're training, whether it's a light jog or fast walk, you know what level you're training in. All you need to do is enter your age and beat per minute (heart rate), and the calculator will do it for you.
Often it's hard to determine how many kilojoules and calories you are burning with certain exercises. This calculator can help you determine this and therefore fine-tune your overall exercise program. All you need to do is type in the activity, the time spend and the intensity, then the Workout Calculator will do the rest.
Remember that the information the fitness tools provide is ONLY A GUIDE and are aimed at healthy adults. It isn't suitable for children or the elderly.
Whatever the results show, the most important thing to remember is that you need to make sure you're eating a healthy balanced diet and keeping physically active.
Also, if you have well-developed muscles, you may find that you will fall into the category of overweight on the Body Mass Index calculator, when in fact you may have a healthy body shape and very little fat.
