Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q)
Regular physical activity is fun and healthy, and increasingly more people are choosing to become more active every day. Starting an exercise program and becoming more active is very safe for most people. However, some people should check with their doctor before they start.
If you are planning to be much more physically active or to begin an exercise program, start by answering these seven questions.
If you are between the ages of 15 and 69, the PAR-Q will tell you if you should consult with your doctor first, or that it is safe for you to exercise.
If you are over 69 years of age, and you have not been physically active, always check with your doctor before beginning any type of exercise.
Please read the questions carefully and answer each one honestly by checking the box for YES or NO.
