Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire PAR-Q
For most people, physical activity should not pose any problem or hazard. PARQ has been designed to identify the small number of adults for whom physical activity might be inappropriate or those who should have medical advice concerning the type of activity mist suitable for them.
Common sense is your best guide in answering these few questions. Please read them carefully and circle “yes” or “no” opposite the questions if it applies to you.
If you answered YES to one or more questions...
If you have not recently done so, consult with your personal physician by telephone or in person immediately before increasing your physical activity and/or taking a fitness test.

If you answered PARQ accurately, you have reasonable assurance of your present suitability for an exercise test.
