and the completion of PAR-Q is a sensible first step to take if you are planning to increase the amount of
physical activity in your life.
For most people, physical activity should not pose any problems or hazard. PAR-Q has been designed to

should have medical advice concerning the type of activity most suitable for them.
Common sense is your best guide in answering these few questions. Please read the carefully and check
