Fitness With Michelle


Many benefits are associated with regular exercise, and completion of the PAR-Q form 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 a problem or hazard. This PAR-Q  has been designed to identify the small number of people for whom physical activity might be inappropriate or for those who should seek medical advice concerning the type of activity most suitable for them.
This PAR-Q will tell you whether it is necessary for you to seek further advice from your doctor before becoming more physically active.

Your personal information is stored securely. For further information please see my privacy policy:
If you have answered YES to any of the health questions:
You are required to gain consent from your doctor before participating in the group exercise class.
Delay becoming more active if:
– You have a temporary illness such as a cold or fever; it is best to wait until you feel better.
– You are pregnant – talk to your health care practitioner, your physician or a qualified exercise professional, before becoming more physically active.
– Your health changes – talk to your doctor or qualified exercise professional before continuing with any physical activity program.


If you have answered NO to all the above questions and you have reasonable assurance of your suitability for exercise, sign the participant declaration at the bottom of the form:
– It is advised that you consult a qualified exercise professional to help you develop a safe and effective physical activity plan to meet your health needs.
– You are encouraged to start slowly and build up gradually – 20 to 60 minutes of low to moderate intensity exercise, 3-5 days per week including aerobic and muscle strengthening exercises.
– If you are over the age of 45 years and NOT accustomed to regular vigorous to maximal sort exercise, consult a qualified exercise professional before engaging in this intensity of exercise.
