PAR-Q

Regular physical activity is fun and healthy, and increasingly more people are starting to become more active every day. Being more active is very safe for most people. However, some people should check with their doctor before they start becoming much more physically active.

If you are planning to become much more physically active than you are now, start by answering the seven questions that follow.  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 tart.  If you are over 69 years of age, and you are not used to being active, check with your doctor.

Common sense is your best guide when you answer these questions.  Please read the 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 when recommended by a doctor?
  2. Do you feel any pain in your chest when exercising?
  3. In the past month, have you had chest pain when you were not doing physical activity?
  4. Do you lose balance because of dizziness or do you ever lose consciousness?
  5. Do you have a bone or joint problem that could be made worse by a change in your physical activity?
  6. Is your doctor currently prescribing you drugs for your blood pressure or heart?
  7. Do you know of any other reason why you should not do physical activity?

Flotality and its agents assume no liability for persons who undertake physical activity. If in doubt after completing this questionnaire, consult your doctor prior to physical activity.
