Section 3: PAR-Q+ The Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire
(A Questionnaire for People Aged 15 to 69)
Before taking any Body Design programming, we require a completed PAR-Q form. Please
review and complete the following information. By submitting this completed form, you avow:
"I have read, understood and completed this questionnaire. Any questions I had were answered
to my full satisfaction."
Regular physical activity is fun and healthy, and increasingly more people are starting to
become more active every day. Being more active is very safe for most people. However, some
people should check with their doctor before they start becoming much more physically
If you are planning to become much more physically active than you are now, start by
answering the seven questions in the box below. If you are between the ages of 15 and 69, the
PAR-Q will tell you if you should check with your doctor before you start. If you are over 69
years of age, and you are not used to being very active, check with your doctor.
Common sense is your best guide when you answer these questions. Please read the questions
carefully and answer each one honestly: check YES or NO.
If you answered YES to one or more questions: Talk
with your doctor by phone or in person BEFORE you start becoming much more physically
active or BEFORE you have a fitness appraisal. Tell your doctor about the PAR-Q and which
questions you answered YES.
You may be able to do any activity you want — as long as you start
slowly and build up gradually. Or, you may need to restrict your activities to those
which are safe for you. Talk with your doctor about the kinds of activities you wish to
participate in and follow his/her advice. Find out which community programs are safe and helpful for
If you answered NO to all questions: If you answered
NO honestly to all PAR-Q questions, you can be reasonably sure that you can:
• start becoming much more physically active – begin slowly and
build up gradually. This is the safest and easiest way to go.
• take part in a fitness appraisal – this is an excellent way to
determine your basic fitness so that you can plan the best way for you to live actively.
It is also highly recommended that you have your blood pressure evaluated. If your
reading is over 144/94, talk with your doctor before you start becoming much more
DELAY BECOMING MUCH MORE ACTIVE:
• if you are not feeling well because of a temporary illness such as a cold or a fever –
wait until you feel better; or
• if you are or may be pregnant – talk to your doctor before you start becoming more
PLEASE NOTE: If your health changes so that you then
answer YES to any of the above questions, tell your fitness or health professional. Ask
whether you should change your physical activity plan.
Informed Use of the PAR-Q: The Canadian Society for Exercise
Physiology, Health Canada, and their agents assume no liability for persons who undertake
physical activity, and if in doubt after completing this questionnaire, consult your doctor
prior to physicalactivity.
NOTE: If the PAR-Q is being given to a person before he or she
participates in a physical activity program or a fitness appraisal, this submission may be
used for legal or administrative purposes.
Note: This physical activity clearance is valid for a maximum of 12
months from the date it is completed and becomes invalid if your condition changes so that
you would answer YES to any of the seven questions.
