In brief: Not healthy

Normal blood pressure (BP) is <120/80.
Hypertension (HTN) is >140 on top or >90 on bottom measured on 2 separate occasions regardless of age, gender, height & weight. BP readings inbetween normal & HTN are considered pre-hypertension which still deserves improve in lifestyle before organ damage sets in. Proper nutrition & regular exercise are useful.
