Body Mass Index (BMI)
Body mass index (BMI) is a measure of body fat based on height and weight that applies to both adult men and women.
BMI Categories:

* Underweight = <18.5
* Normal weight = 18.5-24.9
* Overweight = 25-29.9
* Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater

Know Your Risk
Are you borderline for serious diseases? Just by answering a few questions about your family history and current lifestyle can make a difference in preventing serious illness. Learn more about your health by taking these short quizzes. 

 Target Heart Rate
Your target heart rate zone (training zone) is the range between 60% and 80% of your maximum heart rate. Working within this zone gives you the maximum health and fat-burning benefits from your cardiovascular activity.
