BMI = Weight (kg) / [Height (m) x Height (m)]
You can check your weight status by using the BMI Calculator below. The desirable BMI range for adult (aged 18 and above) is between 18.5 and 25.
- If Your BMI is Less than 18.5, you are underweight
- If Your BMI is 18.5 to less than 25, your weight is desirable
- If Your BMI is 25 to less than 30, you are overweight
- If Your BMI is 30 or more, you are obese
However, the above value is not true if you are adolescent (aged 9-17.9 years). Thus, the BMI-for-Age value have been used for this age group. The following BMI calculator is a combination of both BMI and BMI-for-Age, which make it possible to be use by both adolescents and adults.
Waist Hip Ratio (WHR)
The scales do not necessarily tell you the true story of your weight. They do not indicate the distribution of your fat storage onto the abdomen and central region of your body. When it comes to your health it isn't only a matter of what you weigh but where you are storing the excess fat cells.
To establish whether your weight is placing your health at risk you can do a risk assessment test. Use the on-line calculator below to take the test.
Heart Rate Counter
Check your pulse periodically to see if you are exercising within your target zone. As you get in better shape, try exercising within the upper range of your target zone. (If just beginning an exercise program, consult your doctor first). Enter your age to find a target heart rate during exercise. You'll get the most out of your activities by staying within this range of heartbeats/minute.
