Yes: Yes. Only stipulation is that if you are on blood thinners (coumadin, pradaxa, etc.) you would be at a higher risk of bleeding if you got hurt.
Dr. Gavin Noble

Yes: But the heart rate, blood pressure and blood thinner need to be addressed appropriately.
Dr. Rick Koch

Absolutely: The keys in managing atrial fibrillation are assessing stroke risk (& treating appropriately) & controlling heart rates in order to minimize impact on physical activity. Please follow regularly with your physician to achieve these goals.
