In brief: 50-90

It depends on age - children normally have faster heart rates than adults.
For adults, the "official" normal resting pulse is 50-90/minute. As a rule, healthy adults tend to be at the lower end of this range. Of course your heart will beat much faster with exercise. The fastest your heart usually goes with peak exercise can be estimated as 220 minus your age.
