Deconditioning: If you are otherwise healthy, have no known heart disease, no anemia or other health conditions- your high heart rate when you exercise is most likely related to deconditioning.( meaning being out of shape) How long ago did you start exercising? In any case it is advisable to be examined by your doctor who will decide whether any tests are necessary.
