Curves International heart rate guidelines for high BP

Q: I work at Curves and deal with a lot of women who have high blood pressure. Those who are medicated are not to work out at more than 60% maximum heart rate. What are the health issues if one was NOT to follow these measures implemented by Curves International

A: Curves International does not want someone on medication to push themself too hard and get hurt.  Certain blood pressure medicines prevent the heart from beating fast enough to send enough oxygen to the body with over exertion. This could result in fainting or worse.
