PHYSICAL ACTIVITY READINESS QUESTIONNAIRE (PAR-Q)
Regular physical activity is very safe for most people but some people may need to check with their doctor before increasing their current level of activity.
For adults up to the age of 69, the PAR-Q is a standard form for exercise classes and will tell you if you should check with your doctor before you significantly change your physical activity patterns. If you are pregnant or over 69, please check with your doctor.
Please read the following questions carefully:
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 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 medication for your blood pressure or heart condition?
7. Do you know of any other reason why you should not do physical activity?
If you have answered NO to all questions, it is reasonably safe for you to participate in physical activity, gradually building up from your current activity level.
If you answered YES to one or more questions, you are pregnant, or you are over 69, you should consult with your doctor (if you haven't already) before taking part in a new activity. They can advise if it's safe for you and inform of any particular movements or exercises you should avoid or adapt.
Keep in mind that if your health changes you should let me know so we can revisit this questionnaire.
You should delay taking part if you have a temporary illness such as a cold or injury, and wait until you feel better.
• I have read and understood this guidance and questionnaire, and have answered the PARQ honestly and accurately.
• I confirm that I am voluntarily engaging in a group exercise class that involves physical activity and my participation involves a risk of injury.
• If I answered YES to any PARQ questions, am pregnant, or am over 69, I understand it is my responsibility to seek medical advice before registering and taking part. I will inform the instructor of any particular exercises/movements that I have been told by my doctor to avoid.
• I confirm that I will inform the instructor if my health changes, or if I need to delay taking part due to illness or injury.
