The health benefits of physical activity are clear; more people should engage in physical activity every day of the week. Participating in physical activity is very safe for MOST people. However, some should check with their doctor, another health care practitioner who is licensed to diagnose, or a qualified exercise professional before they start becoming much more physically active. This questionnaire will tell you whether it is necessary for you to seek further advice before becoming more physically active or engaging in a fitness appraisal.

Common sense is your best guide when you answer these questions. Please read the questions carefully and answer each one honestly.

Please note you should delay becoming much more active if you have a temporary illness (such as a cold or fever). It is best to wait until you feel better.
