This Sparked Me!

The heart is a muscle, and by exercising regularly, it will become more efficient - "stronger".
A fit heart can pump more blood in fewer strokes (beats).
Your resting heart rate will decrease as you get into shape.
Your average heart rate will also improve for a given activity, making it seem easier to perform.
