This is a very common question that we get. What should your heart rate be when exercising? I love this question because you are exercising and want to make a difference or wanting to start an exercise program. There are a few points to consider when determining what your heart rate should be when exercising. I will talk about this below. You can get a lot of information out there but it is so important to really understand your cardiovascular risk, precautions and symptoms of heart disease. There is no reason why someone cannot exercise. No matter who you are or what your disability there is always something that can be done.

What should your heart rate be when exercising?

  1. For starters it is important to understand what you are doing for exercise. If you have never done an exercise program or starting an exercise program then I would suggest starting off with an aerobic exercise routine. This heart rate will be much lower than doing sprints, boot camps, cross fit or weight training. I would never start off with the higher intensity that is something you can work up to. I will discuss what your heart rate should be when performing aerobic exercises such as walking, biking, swimming etc.
  2. If you have never exercised before or you are starting an exercise program after a heart event then it becomes so important to receive the correct education to ensure you are exercising safely and effectively. If you have never had a heart attack and are starting an exercise program then I there are a few things that you can do. Again I would start off by receiving the correct education to really understand your cardiovascular risk factors, understand your precautions to exercise and understand symptoms of heart disease. This can be achieved by attending a cardiac rehabilitation program or getting the correct information, cardiac rehabilitation
    In either case I would suggest seeing or consulting with a heart health expert like the Heart Fit Clinic over the phone, email or in person.
  3. He is what your heart rate should be when exercising if you have not had a heart disease event:
    There is a common formula used to determine your maximum heart rate, which is 220-age. It is just an estimate but you can try this to see.
    This formula does not work if you are taking any cardiovascular medications.
    Here is an example if you are 50 years old with a resting heart rate of 70.
    step 1: determine estimated maximum heart rate = 220-50(age) = 170
    step 2: determine your heart rate reserve = 170 (max heart rate) – 70 (resting heart rate) = 100
    step 3: determine 50% of your reserve = 100 x 50% = 50
    step 4: heart rate when exercising would be 120.
  4. What should your heart rate be when exercising if I am taking cardiovascular medications? As mentioned above if you are taking cardiovascular medications or have had a cardiovascular event then you will require more education to determine what your heart rate should be when exercising. This would require a consult with a heart health specialist like the Heart Fit Clinic over the phone, email or in person as each case may be a little individual and dependent on history.

Just take the time to educate yourself to be a success with your heart health. It is so important to invest in your health and have the right mindset to beat heart disease. As always I am here to help.

How to Bounce Back From Life’s Toughest Challenge?

How to Bounce Back From Life’s Toughest Challenge?



Today marks what would have been my brother-in-law’s 38th Birthday. I can see the sadness in my wife still many years later and of course my mother in law. She has been through a lot but is still thriving, with the loss of her husband and the passing of her son.


Everyone can experience troubled times and the reason I write this post is because you can be resilient getting through tough times. Tough times can be the passing of a loved one, experiencing a change in health or anything that is a change for what we call a negative.


I deal with people preventing and reversing heart disease. If people are fortunate to survive a heart attack or heart event it can leave a sense of grief, a feeling of loss of immortality. We can’t live forever but sometimes our behaviors will shorten our life.


Whether you feel you have lost a loved one or feel like you are losing your health, you can be resilient in bouncing back. It takes me back to a great post that I read and I would like to share it with you today.


Here are the key points to the article.

1.     Pulling Yourself Forward

2.     Taking Control

3.     Finding a Team

4.     Counting Your Blessings

5.     Lending a Hand

6.     Accepting and Adapting

7.     Forgiving, But Not Necessarily Forgetting

Fitness vs Fatness

Losing Weight After A Heart Attack – Fitness vs Fatness



A new study published in the European Heart Journal shows that people can be overweight or obese but healthy and fit. How is that possible? If you are overweight and have been struggling with weight loss, it is important to understand that it is more important to be healthy versus yo-yoing your weight around.




If you are overweight and “metabolically healthy” where you have a high fitness level and eat well, you are better off than someone who is of “normal weight” and who is “metabolically unhealthy”.


Obesity is a known risk factor to heart disease which can lead to high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and heart disease. Now it is known that fitness will trump this effect. The metabolic complications of obesity can be protected with increase fitness level and proper nutrition.


People can be obese but metabolically healthy and fit, with no greater risk of developing or dying from cardiovascular disease or cancer than normal weight people, according to the largest study ever to have investigated this seeming paradox.


The research found that 46% of the obese participants were metabolically healthy and this decreased the risk of dying from cardiovascular disease by between 30% and 50%. Not all obese people have the same prognosis. Fitness levels should be assessed and also metabolic markers to ensure obese people are “metabolically fit”.


So for those people who are “fit looking” with a healthy body weight does not make you immune to heart disease. And for those people who are overweight or obese losing weight should not be your primary focus. Start to get healthy. What does that mean? Yes the 3 usual suspects; exercise, nutrition and stress management.


I know our society is predominantly physically oriented forcing us to go on fad diets. But in order for you to prevent or reverse heart disease get your heart and you “metabolically fit” and you will feel great. The pounds will start to come off as you do the right things on a consistent basis.


To your heart health success,
