Par-Q: Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire
Regular physical activity is fun and the health benefits are clear. More people should engage in physical activity every day of the week. Engaging in physical activity is very safe for most people. However, some people should check with their doctor before they start becoming more physically active.
This questionnaire will tell you if you need to consult a doctor before becoming more physically active.
If you are pregnant, please notify Peg Family Fitness. You will be given a different form to fill out.
Common sense is your best guide when answering these questions. Please read the questions carefully and answer each one honestly: check YES or NO
If you answered YES to any of questions 1-7, you should seek further advice before becoming more physically active. Please speak with your doctor and/or contact Peg Family Fitness about completing the ePARmed-X form, a more in-depth online screening tool. You may be able to do any activity you want, including participating in Peg Family Fitness classes, or you may need to restrict your activities.
If you answered NO to all of questions 1-7, you can be reasonably sure that you can start becoming more physically active! It is advised that you begin slowly and build up gradually.
You should delay becoming more active if you are not feeling well because of a temporary illness (such as a cold or a fever). Please wait until you feel better. If you are pregnant please talk to your doctor or contact Peg Family Fitness for a more in-depth screening tool prior to participation.
Note: If your health changes so that you answer YES to any of questions 1-7, please consult your doctor and fitness professional.
