Tools, Apps, & Videos

This section provides interactive tools you and your family can use on your quest for optimal physical fitness.
CDC Adult BMI Calculator
Body mass index (BMI) is a commonly used general measure for overall health. It is a measure that uses the weight and height of a person to estimate “size.” It is not as accurate as body fat measurements, but it does provide an easy-to-obtain estimate of weight status. For information on what a healthy weight is, check out this CDC webpage.
BMI Calculator for Child and Teen
Optimal body weight is harder to calculate for children and teens, so the CDC provides this separate calculator, as well as an explanation of why the adult BMI calculator cannot be used for children and teens.
Physical Activity Calorie Counter
Calculate the calories you burn. This calculator from the American Council on Exercise allows you to put in your body weight, activity, and time spent to estimate how many calories you burned.
