The PAR-Q contains only seven YES or NO questions, making it quick and easy to take.
If you answered NO to all questions
If you answered NO to all the PAR-Q questions, you can be reasonably sure that you can exercise safely and have a low risk of having any medical complications from exercise. BUT – it is still important to start slowly and increase gradually. Remember though, if your health changes so that you then answer “Yes” to any of the PAR-Q questions, then play it safe and go to see your doctor.
If you answered YES to one or more questions
If you answered YES to one or more of the PAR-Q questions, then please go to see your doctor. They will probably be delighted you are keen to become physically active – but they might have some advice or guidelines about the exercise/s you can do.
