PAR-Q & YOU

This Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q) is designed for people aged 15-69 yrs.

Regular physical activity is fun and healthy, and increasingly more people are starting to become more active every day. Being more active is very safe for most people. However, some people should check with their doctor before they start becoming much more physically active.

If you are planning to become much more physically active than you are now, start by answering the seven questions in the box below. If you are between the ages of 15 and 69, the PAR-Q will tell you if you should check with your doctor before you start. If you are over 69 years of age, and you are not used to being very active, check with your doctor.

Common sense is your best guide when you answer these questions. Please read the questions carefully and answer each one honestly.


If you answered YES to one or more questions:

Talk with your doctor by phone or in person BEFORE you start becoming much more physically active or BEFORE you have a fitness appraisal. Tell your doctor about the PAR-Q and which question you answered YES.

1. You may be able to do any activity you want – as long as you start slowly and build up gradually. Or you may need to restrict your activities to those which are safer for you. Talk with your doctor about the kinds of activities you wish to participate in and follow his/her advice.
2. Find out which community programs are safe and helpful for you

If you answered NO to all questions:

If you answered NO honestly to all PAR-Q questions, you can be reasonably sure that you can:
• Start becoming much more physically active – begin slowly and build up gradually. This is the safest and easiest way to go.
• Take part in a fitness appraisal –– this is an excellent way to determine your basic fitness so that you can plan the best way for you to live actively. It is also highly recommended that you have your blood pressure evaluated. If your reading is over 144/94, talk with your doctor before you start becoming much more physically active.

Delay becoming much more active:

If you are not feeling well because of a temporary illness such as a cold or a fever –– wait until you feel better; or if you are or may be pregnant –– talk to your doctor before you start becoming more active

PLEASE NOTE:

If your health changes so that you can then answer YES to any of the above questions, tell you fitness or health professional. As whether you should change your physical activity.

Other Important Notes

1. If the PAR-Q is being given to a person before he or she participates in a physical activity program or a fitness appraisal, this section may be used for legal or administrative purposes.
2. This physical activity clearance is valid for a maximum of 12 months from the date it is completed and becomes invalid if your condition changes so that you would answer YES to any of the seven questions.
