In brief: Normal range @ rest

60-99 BPM is a normal heart rate at rest.
Aerobically fit people often have lower resting/exercise heart rate, thus better--well conditioned heart pumps better and thus does not have to pump as many times/min. Runners/swimmers/bicyclers/athletes often have nice and slow heart rate. Keep a healthy heart duceduce9..Good luck.
