    It depends on your age - there are charts up at my gym showing them.

    What age are you and I can look up the range next time I'm there (planned for tomorrow night assuming I get away from work promptly !!) ?

    Hey curlygirl!

    Recommended effort for best results (i.e. fat loss & cardio improvement) is 65-75% of maximum heart rate.

    Max heart rate is 220-age so yours is 191.
    65% of 191 is 124 and 75% of 191 is 143. So you should be aiming for a heart rate of between 124 and 143 beats per minute. Ideally - keep going for 45 mins for best results.

    Good luck
    xx
