I feel my heart rate slow down when I go to bed a night. Is that because I am fit?

In brief: Normal

Everyone heart rate slows down at night because there is withdrawal of sympathetic forces and increase parasympathetic influence.
A personal who is fit will start out with a slower hr and will slow down even further.
