Example: for a person with 30 years age:

Target heart rate = (220-30) multiplied by 0.6 = 114 for beginner.
Target heart rate = (220-30) multiplied by 0.7 = 133 for somewhat practiced person.
Target heart rate = (220-30) multiplied by 0.8 = 152 for the habitual one.

Never try to achieve these prescribed target heart rates in aerobics on the very first day of the exercises. Do it gradually over a period of say around 8 to 10 weeks.
