I've taken my BP several times and my resting heart rate is always 95-100 is that normal for someone who is not very active?
Heart rate: Resting heart rate between 60-100 is in the "normal" range, however at your young age a heart rate at 100 is too high. Poor aerobic condition can lead to this, but I would make sure that you get checked by your doctor to evaluate your thyroid status, electrolytes, anemia, and check an electrocardiogram.

Is it normal to have a resting heart rate of 56 bpm? I've become more active over the last couple of months. Been going to the gym 5 times a week.
What is a normal heart rate when active. I mean like cooking n cleaning. My resting heart rate is 77bpm. Was 85 BPM when I was cooking. ?
Still normal: A normal heart rate range is 40-90. Therefore nothing to worry about.

According to my fitbit my resting heart rate is 71 but when im active my heart rate can easily jump up to 105. Is this normal?
Heart rate exercise: Yes this is normal. You might want to go to Wikipedia and look up exercise and heart rate. They will give you a chart that relates the amount of exercise to your maximum heart rate by age and gender. Can go up to 140 with good exercise depending on how fit you are. Would double check the FitBit heart rate by checking it yourself as well. Sometimes not so accurate. ...Read more
