All users must fill out the ParQ form below before training with OxStrongHealth.

Regular physical activity is fun and healthy, and increasingly more people are starting to become more active every day. Being more active is very safe for most people. However, some people should check with their doctor before they start becoming much more physically active.

Before commencing your Personal Training programme, please answer the seven questions in the below. If you are between the ages of 15 and 69, the PAR-Q will tell you if you should check with your doctor before you start.

If you are over 69 years of age, and you are not used to being very active, check with your doctor prior to commencing any exercise programme.

Common sense is your best guide when you answer these questions. Please read the questions carefully and answer each one honestly: YES or NO.

If you answered YES to one or more questions:

Talk with your doctor by phone or in person BEFORE you start becoming much more physically active or BEFORE you have a fitness appraisal. Tell your doctor about the PAR-Q and which questions you answered YES. Ox Strong Healthreserves the right to refuse to start or continue a client’s exercise program until a written medical approval has been provided by your doctor or health specialist.

Please note that you may well be able to do any activity you want, as long as you start slowly and build up gradually. Alternatively, you may need to restrict your activities to those which are safe for you. Talk with your doctor about the kinds of activities you wish to participate in and follow his/her advice. Be aware that you should DELAY ANY EXERCISE ACTIVITY,if you are not feeling well because of a temporary illness such as a cold or a fever – wait until you feel better. If you are or may be pregnant – talk to your doctor and Personal Trainer before you continue your exercise programme or start to become more active

If you answered NO to all questions:

You can be reasonably sure that you can: start becoming much more physically active – begin slowly and build up gradually. This is the safest and easiest way to go.

IMPORTANT: If at any time your health status changes so that you would then answer YES to any of the PAR-Q questions or have to take prescribed drugs, it is your responsibility to inform your Personal Trainer/Coach [Ox Strong Health] and ask whether you should change your physical activity plan and/or provide a Medical Clearance Form before continuing to exercise.
