The Body Mass Index Calculator measures your BMI which represents a relative weight based on an individual’s mass and height. The BMI is used as a simple method to assess how much your body weight departs from what is normal or desirable for a person of your height. Use the BMI calculator below to determine your body mass index by inputting your height and weight.
Understanding your Body Mass Index
Now that you know your body mass index, find out how it might reflect your condition.
Please Note: BMI is not the most accurate way of determining your health, it is just an indicator. Some people could have a high BMI and claimed to be obese, whilst they are athletic and just pack on lots of muscles.
If your BMI is below 18.5:
Your BMI is considered underweight or too lean. Keep in mind that an underweight BMI calculation may pose certain health risks. Please consult your healthcare provider for more information about BMI calculations
If your BMI is between 18.5 – 24.9:
Your BMI is considered normal. This healthy weight helps reduce your risk of serious health conditions and means you’re close to your fitness goals.
If your BMI is above 30:
Your BMI is considered overweight or over muscular. Being overweight may increase your risk of cardiovascular disease. Consider making lifestyle changes through healthy eating and fitness to improve your health, unless you are less than 20% body fat and have high muscle mass . Our online training is a great start.
