PHYSICAL ACTIVITY READINESS QUESTIONNAIRE
(PAR-Q)

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.

YES NO
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.
