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 becoming much more physically active.
If you are planning on becoming much more physically active than you are now, start by answering the seven questions 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 the age of 69 years of age and you are not already physically 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 of these 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. Find out which community programs are safe and helpful to you.
If you answered NO to all questions…You can be reasonably sure that you can start becoming 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 to live actively. T 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 physically active.
