Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR Q)
The PAR Q (Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire) is required to be completed by each participant before taking part in training.
For most people, physical activity should not pose any problems or hazards. PAR Q has been designed to identify the small number of people for whom physical activity might be inappropriate or those who should have medical advice concerning the type of activity most suitable for them.
Common sense is your best guide in answering these few questions in the next section. Please read them carefully and check YES or NO. If YES, please explain. If you answer yes to any of the questions in the PAR-Q, you are advised to seek medical advise/approval before taking part. If your health changes, such that you answer yes to any of the questions, please refrain from exercising until you have spoken with your GP or other health professional.
This information is not meant to make you feel anxious about training. It is merely there to make sure we can give you the best experience possible and to keep you exercising safely.
This form should be completed prior to your first session, OR if you need to tell us about any changes to your health which may affect your participation.
If you are aged 15-69, the PAR-Q will tell you if you should check with your doctor before significantly changing your physical activity patterns. If you are over 69 years and aren’t used to being very active, check with your GP. Please read each question carefully and answer honestly by indicating YES or NO.
