How to Calculate Your Required Heart Rate
To calculate your maximum heart rate, take 220 and subtract your age. For example, if you are 30 years old, 190 beats per minute (bpm) is your maximum heart rate (220 - 30 = 190).
Calculate your required heart rate by multiplying 60% or 70% to your maximum heart rate. If you are 30 years old, your target heart rate at 60% is 114bpm and at 70% is 133bpm.
Mr. Chan is 30 years old. His age-related maximum heart rate is 190bpm (220 - 30).
Mr. Chan must keep his average heart rate above 114bpm (60% of his maximum heart rate) during his 30-minute exercise session to earn 50 AIA Vitality Points.
If Mr. Chan keeps his heart rate above 133bpm (70% of his maximum heart rate), he will earn 100 points.
