Body Mass Index Calculator

The body mass index defines how much fat vs body mass (muscle) your body is made up of. Higher BMI's can often lead to medical conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes etc.

Please note: Well trained individuals with dense muscles may have a higher BMI but very little body fat. Waist circumfrence or skinfold thickness might be a better measurement of body fat than the BMI calculator.
