PARQ

All customers are required to view this PAR-Q ahead of participating

in regular or increased exercise.

For most people being active should not pose a risk, however this questionnaire is designed to identify the small number of people for where it may be unsuitable. 

 

If you answer YES to any of the following questions you must gain consent from your doctor before following our exercise programmes. 

  • Has your doctor ever said you have a heart condition, and you should only exercise when recommended by a doctor?

  • Do you feel pain in your chest when you do or do not do physical activity?

  • Do you lose your balance because of dizziness, or have you ever lost consciousness?

  • Do you have a bone or joint problem that could be made worse by a change in exercise?

  • Have you had an operation in the last 12 months?

  • Is your doctor currently prescribing medication for your blood pressure or heart condition?

  

Have you answered NO to all questions?

If you answered NO and have reasonable assurance of your suitability for exercise, then you do not need to do anything else but we ask that you continue to keep safe whilst exercising by Starting slowly and building up gradually: 20 to 60 minutes of low to moderate intensity exercise, 3-5 days per week including aerobic and muscle strengthening exercises.

 

Please delay becoming more active if any of the following applies:

  • You have a temporary illness such as a cold or fever – you should wait until you feel better.

  • You are or become pregnant - talk to your health care practitioner before becoming more physically active and let your coach know asap.

  • If you are over the age of 60 years and NOT accustomed to regular vigorous to maximal sort exercise, consult a qualified exercise professional before engaging in this intensity of exercise.

Any exercise programme carries with it an element of risk.  During your sessions your coach/trainer will not be present so you will be 100% responsible for your own safety. If, at any time, you feel undue pain or excessive discomfort stop the activity and inform your coach of your symptoms.

REMEMBER: You are free to stop an exercise or activity at any time you wish.
