PAR-Q and Liability Waiver


Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q)

(A Questionnaire for People Aged 15 to 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 they start becoming much more physically active.

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


1. Has your doctor ever said that you have a heart condition AND that you should only do physical activity recommended by a doctor?

1. Has your doctor ever said that you have a heart condition AND that you should only do physical activity recommended by a doctor?

3. In the past month, have you had chest pain when you were not doing physical activity?

4. Do you lose your balance because of dizziness or do you ever lose consciousness?

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?

6. Is your doctor currently prescribing drugs (for example, water pills) for your blood pressure or heart condition?

7. Do you know of ANY OTHER REASON why you should not do physical activity?


If you answered YES to one or more questions:

  • Talk to 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 you.

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.

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
  • If you are or may be pregnant – talk to your doctor before you start
    becoming more active.


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 section 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.
