PHYSICAL ACTIVITY READINESS QUESTIONNAIRE
If you are between the ages of 15 and 69, and planning to become much more physically active than you are now, the PAR-Q will tell you if you should check with your doctor before you start.
Please read the following questions carefully and answer each one honestly.
|1. Has your doctor ever said that you have a heart condition and that you should only do physical activity recommended by a doctor?|
|2. Do you feel pain in your chest when you do physical activity?|
|3. In the past month, have you had chest pain when you were not doing physical activity?|
|4. Do you lose your balance because of dizziness or do you ever lose consciousness?|
|5. 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?|
|6. Is your doctor currently prescribing drugs (for example, water pills) for your blood pressure or heart conditions?|
|7. Do you know of any other reason why you should not do physical activity?|
If you answered YES to one or more questions, you should talk with your doctor before you start becoming much more physically active.
