In brief: Heart rate

Although the textbook definition of bradycardia (Slow heartbeat) is a heart rate less than 60, young people and conditioned athletes often have a heart rate much slower than this at rest.
It is normal for the heart rate to accelerate with exercise. If you have particular concerns consider a consult here on HealthTap.
