What is the PARQ and why do I need to complete it?

The PARQ (Pre Activity Readiness Questionnaire) is an industry-standard for fitness professionals and fitness faculties to use when screening clients for exercise. The reason for doing this is to ensure you (the client) is healthy and will not be put at risk from taking part in a fitness programme or regular exercise.  Fitness professionals are not medical professionals and cannot commence a fitness programme with a client who has provided positive responses to a PARQ. In this case, the client will be referred to their local GP to ensure they are ready for exercise. A yes to the first 6 questions on the PARQ form overleaf will normally result in a referral to your GP however a YES response to questions 7 to 13 depending on the circumstances of each question will not normally require GP consent.

The guide below is our policy and we must enforce on all occasions with no exceptions.
