60-100: Normal resting heart rates are designated as being 60-100. Deviations from this can occur under various physiologic states however and might not indicate any cardiac abnormality (example increased vagal tone as seen in episodes of nausea might slow hr below 60). Anxiety, dehydration, anemia, fever, and pain might make a resting heart rate >100. Thyroid issues (hypo w slow hr, hyper w fast hr).

Heart Rate: During sleep, HR in healthy people can even go as low as 30s. As long as asymptomatic, no problem. Upto 100 is normal by definition, however, resting and above 80 concerns us for a number of conditions.

More or less: This would be considered a relatively good sign of an effective heart, likely due to athletic conditioning. It needs to beat as fast as necessary to do the work. If you are a couch potato I would want to check it out.
