The PAR-Q will tell you if you should check with your doctor before you start an exercise program. Copied in full from the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology's "Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire - PAR-Q" (2002). Informed Use of the PAR-Q: The Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology, Health Canada, and their agents assume no liability for persons who undertake physical activity, and if in doubt after completing this questionnaire, consult your doctor prior to physical activity.
Please read the questions carefully and answer each one honestly. Selecting indicates "NO".
Has your doctor ever said that you have a heart condition and that you should only do physical activity recommended by a doctor?
Do you feel pain in your chest when you do physical activity?
In the past month, have you had chest pain when you were not doing physical activity?
Do you lose your balance because of dizziness or do you ever lose consciousness?
Do you have a bone or joint problem (for example, back, knee or hip) that could be made worse by a change in your physical activity?
Is your doctor currently prescribing drugs (for example, water pills) for your blood pressure or heart condition?
Do you know of any other reason why you should not do physical activity?
Please select if the following statements apply to you.
If you are pregnant or seeking to become pregnant, under the age of 18 or over the age of 69, we are sorry to advise that we cannot offer coaching services to you.
I am between 18 and 69 years of age.
I am not pregnant or seeking to become pregnant.
If you did NOT select (and therefore answer YES) to one or more questions: Talk with your physician by phone or in person BEFORE you start becoming much more physically active or BEFORE you have a fitness appraisal. Tell your physician about the PAR-Q and which questions you answered YES. 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 safe for you. Talk with your doctor about the kinds of activities you wish to participate in and follow his/her advice. Find out which community programs are safe and helpful for you.
If you selected (and therefore 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.
