Hi,arvind ,thank for query.While you exercise ,you oxygen requirment increases due to exercise and that is the reason why your heart beats at a faster rate.This comes to normal when you stop doing exercise and comes to normal after some time.At rest the effect of exercise done earlier cannot be there,if you have increased heart rate during rest also ,you need to look for some other reason,please take help from your doctor and get an examination done.
wishing you good health.

Hi,Welcome to Health Care Magic Forum,
Get your ECG ,blood glucose and TSH done to investigate your problem.During exercise your heart rate increases but as you said during rest also its there that means it is a cause of concern.Above written tests are to investigate the basic cause.Let me know your reports there after.You can email them to
Wishing you good health.

yes gymming will increse your heart rate during exercise. But if you are having increased heart rate at rest also, guess it willbe better for you to have a consult with your doctor before proceding further with the gymming. At rest your hearrate should be normal.

This is quite uncommon, the heart rate will increase while you are in gym. SO get it checked with a physician immediately
