Physical Activity

Getting Started

Before starting any new physical activity it is very important to assess your health status. It’s a good idea to talk to your doctor to figure out what is safe for you to do.

The Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology and Health Canada have a health questionnaire for people aged 15 to 69. The PAR-Q - Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire - asks seven questions about your health and how you answer these questions will determine what kind of activity is safe for you.
