Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q) (suitable for ages 15-69)

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.

1) Has your doctor ever said that you have a heart condition and that you should only do physical activity recommended by a doctor?
Yes No
2) Do you feel pain in your chest when you do physical activity?
Yes No
3) In the past month, have you had chest pain when you were not doing physical activity?
Yes No
4) Do you lose your balance because of dizziness or do you lose consciousness?
Yes No
5) Do you have a bone or joint problem (for example, back, knee or hip) that could be made worse by a change in your physical activity?
Yes No
6) Is your doctor currently prescribing drugs (for example water pills) for your blood pressure or heart condition?
Yes No
7) Do you now of any other reason why you should not do physical activity?
Yes 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.

Delay becoming more active

  • If you are not feeling well because of temporary illness such as a cold or fever. Wait until you feel better
  • If you are or may be pregnant. Talk to your doctor before you start becoming more active.
Please note: If your health changes so that you then answer YES to any of the above questions, tell your fitness or health care professional. Ask whether you should change your physical activity.

If the PAR-Q is being given to a person before he or she participates in a physical activity program or fitness appraisal, this section may be used for legal and administrative purposes.
