    I got 61 and i'm pretty fat and unfit, given the heart history of my family it's extremely surprising.

    I barley even leave the house so I haven't got a clue how that's possible, but yay.
    There are lots of factors that affect heart rate, so it's not necessarily indicative of overall CV health. 'fitness' isn't the only thing affecting it.

    True though i'm fairly healthy and i was really fit until a few years ago.

    Possibly a stupid point but i wonder if me being such a low stress/laid back person could help my heart health.

    I'm quite a stressed person and not laid back at all, I worry about everything, I don't know where this is coming from because my eating life style is rubbish too, well it's ok but not that great.

    Oh well I'm very thankful to have a healthy heart beat.

    Blood pressure is a much better indicator for cardiovascular problems than heart rate
