Before you engage in any strenuous physical activity, it's important to evaluate your physical readiness by taking the Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (Par-Q). PAR-Q (Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire) is designed to help you help yourself. Many health benefits are associated with regular exercise, and the completion of the PAR-Q is a sensible first step to take if you are planning to increase the amount of physical activity in your life.

For most people physical activity should not pose any problem or hazard, PAR-Q has been designed to help identify the small number of adults for whom physical activity might be inappropriate, or those who should seek medical advice concerning the type of activity most suitable for them.

Common sense is your best guide in answering the few questions. Please read them carefully and decide YES or NO if it applies to you.

  1. Has a doctor ever said that you have a heart condition and recommends only medically supervised activity?

  2. Do you have chest pain brought on by physical activity?

  3. Have you developed chest pain the past month?

  4. Do you tend to lose consciousness or fall over as a result of dizziness?

  5. Do you have a bone or joint problem that could be aggravated by the proposed physical activity?

  6. Has a doctor ever recommended medication for your blood pressure or heart condition?

  7. Are you aware from your own experience, or a doctor's advice, of any other physical reasons against your exercising without medical supervision?
If you have answered Yes to any of the above questions and have not recently done so, please consult with your personal physician BEFORE increasing your physical activity and/or taking a fitness test. Tell your physician what questions you answered YES on Par-Q or show him or her your copy.
