Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q)
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 significantly change your physical activity patterns. If you are over 69 years of age and are not used to being very active, check with your doctor. Please read each question carefully and answer honestly by indicating YES or NO.
If you answer YES to one or more questions:
You should consult with your doctor to clarify that it is safe for you to become physically active at this current time in your current state of health.
If you answer NO to ALL of the questions:
It is reasonably safe for you to participate in physical activity, gradually building up from your current ability level. A fitness appraisal can help determine your ability levels.
