I wouldnt worry about.

Not only are those machines often inaccurate, people vary. It may be you actually are at that heart rate and have a msximum heart rate higher than most. My mom is like that. Or, possibly more likely, is it is not accurate

Dont use the heart rate mode and ignore the machine.

@ThreeMeers:  +1 and even if your HR were over 150 there’s nothing wrong with that. As long as you feel OK, keep it up!

I am 31, and my heart rate while working out is supposed to be at like…120.  It’s usually at 180 or so.  So yeah…I don’t think it matters.  As long as your doctor says you’re healthy, I think it’s fine.

@peachacid:  I’m the same way.  My heart rate can easily get up to 170-180 when running/working out.  But I feel perfectly fine and it quickly settles back to my resting heart rate when I’m done (a sign of good physical fitness).  It’s always been this way and no one has ever seemed worried about it.

Mine sometimes goes too high (185), which is annoying ’cause I can get light headed from it. As long as you’re feeling good and not light headed or struggling to breathe, I think it’s fine. Maybe just don’t do the cardio workouts on the machines so you don’t have to deal with it trying to slow you down?

Omg my HR while running is like 180+ lol. It’s mostly based on age fwiw.
