Understanding the Calculator

The “Calories Burned by Heart Rate Calculator” is easy to use. You simply need to gather a few statistics to get started. The calculator has several drop-down boxes and field forms that you will need to fill out. Here they are:

1. Gender
2. Age
3. Weight
4. Exercise Time (in minutes)
5. Average Heart Rate

Keep in mind that you will need a monitor, which you can purchase at any exercise or sports store, to determine your average heart rate. These devices are economical and small. Many exercise machines at your local gym also have heart rate monitors that will help you determine your average heart rate.

Click the “Calculate!” button.

It just seconds, the “Calories Burned by Heart Rate” calculator will return a set of statistics for you. Here is an example for a 32-year-old female who weighs 133 pounds, is exercising for 30 minutes, and has an average heart rate of 65:

“You burned roughly 1 calories per minute for a total of 24 calories.”

This information is very helpful, as it lets you know what you need to do to increase your heart rate and to burn more calories.

When that same person increases her heart rate to 75, here is what the calculator returns:

“You burned roughly 2 calories per minute for a total of 57 calories.”

Keep in mind that our calculator returns results that represent the average person within specific age, weight, and heart rate categories. Depending on your metabolic rate, your age, and your sex, you may be able to burn more or will burn less calories. Try not to get discouraged. Every person’s body is different.

As your body adjusts to an exercise routine and a healthy eating lifestyle, you may find that you can increase your metabolism and burn more calories per minute. Give your exercise regimen some time and focus on what you like to do to work up a sweat. You’ll enjoy it more this way!
