Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q)

Regular exercise is fun and healthy. For most people, it is safe to increase physical activity. In some cases, it is advisable to consult your doctor before starting. This form is about to find out if you can start training right away, or if you should speak to your doctor first.

This questionnaire is valid for persons between 15 and 69 years. If you are over 69 years of age and are not used to exercise regularly, be sure to speak to your doctor before you start exercising.

Answer the following questions thoroughly. Please read the questions carefully and answer each question honestly with yes or no.

Before we start, we need some information to be able to assign the questionnaire to the right person.
