Check Your Readiness for Activity
Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q)
For most people, physical activity should not pose any problem or hazard. PAR-Q has been designed to identify the small number of adults for whom physical activity might be inappropriate or those who should have medical advice concerning the type of activity most suitable for them.
Before attempting any of the fitness routines offered by Fitness to Worship, please answer the following questions. This will help you determine if you are ready to safely undertake low-to-moderate-to-high levels of activity.
|1||Has your doctor ever said that you have a heart condition and that you should only perform physical activity recommended by a doctor?|
|2||Do you feel pain in your chest when you perform physical activity?|
|3||In the past month, have you had chest pain when you were not performing any 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 that could be made worse by a change in your physical activity?|
|6||Is your doctor currently prescribing any medication for your blood pressure or for a heart condition?|
|7||Do you know of any other reason why you should not engage in physical activity?|
If you have answered “Yes” to one or more of the above questions, consult your physician before engaging in physical activity. Tell your physician which questions you answered “Yes” to. After a medical evaluation, seek advice from your physician on what type of activity is suitable for your current condition.
