Find your Ideal BMI!

Know and understand your BMI - or your ideal body mass index. Avoid heart disease and stroke, monitor your weight, and reign in overweight with the help of your known BMI.


 

 

 


BODY TYPE BMI INDEX

 

     - Underweight
Below OR = 18.5
     - Normal weight
18.5 - 24.9
     - Overweight
25 - 29.9
     - Obese
= 30 or More

 

NOTE: Different nations & organizations use different BMI ranges to classify weight status.

This Table represents the internationally weight status categories of the US Department of Health & Human Services.

 

 

 

What is the BMI?

 

The BMI - Body Mass Index - is one of the tools useful to assessing and achieving body fitness. The BMI index is a number that indicates a correlation between your body weight, height and the area of your body surface.

 

 

The BMI is useful in calculating whether you fall into a normal body fat range, or if you are underweight, overweight or obese. This number can be a wake-up call to understanding that exercise needs to be part of your routine to pare down the excess fat lurking in your body tissues and/or that you need to address nutrition and lifestyle issues to achieve a BMI in the normal weight range, whether overweight or under. Overweight can lead to heart disease and stroke, as well as a host of other medical conditions.

 

 

From the chart posted above, you can see that a healthy body mass falls between 18.5 and 24.9. This 'healthy" range actually covers a range of weights. An individual who stands 5'8", for instance, could push the scale from 122 to 164 pounds and fall into the 'Healthy" range of 18.5 - 24.9. Those with too much body fat fall into the overweight and obese categories, while those with too little body fat, which can carry its own set of circumstances, are considered underweight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To calcultate your own BMI, use the following formulas.

One is for English units, the other metric.


 

 

 

 




ENGLISH MEASURE:

 


BMI = Weight (lb) x 703
   (Height (in) x Height (in)

 

Sample: Height: 5'5" | Weight : 130 lbs.

 

 

Calculation:

130 (lbs) times 703

divided by 65 (inches) times 65 (inches) =

130 x 703 = 91390
  65 x  65 =   4225

 

 

                BMI = 91390 = 21.6 --                               4225                 

 

or a BMI in the "Normal Weight Range"

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

METRIC UNITS:

 

BMI =Weight (kg)
 (Height (m) x Height (m)

 

Sample: Height: 1.70 m | Weight: 60 kg

 

 

Divide your Weight in kilograms by your height squared
-- (or height in meters times height in meters)

 

 

Calculation:

60 (kg) divided by 1.7 times 1.7 =

 

1.7 x 1.7 = 2.89

               

BMI = 60 = 20.8
2.89

 

or a BMI in the "Normal Weight Range"

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Many factors, of course, contribute to your overall health picture. The BMI, or Body Mass Index, is but ONE tool in your fitness arsenal. Having a "Normal Weight - Healthy" range does NOT translate that you enjoy perfect health.

 

 

Use the BMI to assess your underlying areas of need. Use this knowledge in conjunction with a healthy diet and proper exercise for your age, condition and individual health issues. And as always, consult a trusted medical practioner before beginning your home exercise regimen with your elliptical, as with any home fitness equipment and exercise program.

 


As with any Fitness Activity, seek the counsel of your personal physician before beginning any Exercise Program with the Schwinn 430, Nordic Track 990, Nordic Track 1300, Lifefitness X1, X3 or X8 Ellipticals -- or any fitness equipment.
