Quickly find out your BMI and see if you're eligible for BeeZee Bodies programmes
You can use this calculator to work out your BMI, or ‘body mass index’.
This is a widely used measurement to determine whether or not you’re a healthy weight, and it should only take a few seconds.
BMI measurements do have some limitations (more on this below), but they’re a good basic indicator of health for most people.
Whether you’re a healthy weight or not is calculated differently for adults and children.
Unlike for adults, BMI for children depends on age and sex as well as height and weight. Children’s healthy weight ranges are also calculated differently, using ‘centiles’.
For example, if 99% of people of your age, sex and height weigh less than you, then you’re in the 99th centile. If 80% of them weigh less than you, you’re in the 80th centile. And so on.
While BMI can give a rough idea of body size, it isn’t a perfect representation of an individual’s health and has some limitations:
If you’re unsure or don’t think your BMI results are accurate, you could also measure your body fat to get a better overall picture of your health. But that’s not something you can do in 30 seconds with an online calculator!
Because we’re funded by local councils and the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities, most of our programmes have eligibility criteria.
For simplicity, these eligibility criteria are usually based on your BMI, and the exact requirements will be listed on the webpage for each programme.
