For most people physical activity should not pose any problem or hazard. This questionnaire is designed to identify the small number of students for whom physical activity might be inappropriate or those who should have medical advice concerning the type of activity most suitable for them.

Common sense is the best guide in answering these few questions. Please read them carefully and inform us before enrolling in an email of any of the questions where the answer is “yes”.

Questions to you or your child (parents please answer or ask your Childs doctor):

Has your doctor ever said that you have a joint problem, such as arthritis, that has been aggravated by exercise, or might be made worse by exercise?

Do you have high blood pressure?

Do you have low blood pressure?

Do you have Diabetes Mellitus or any other metabolic disease?

Has your doctor ever said you have raised cholesterol (serum level above 6.2 mmol/l)

Has your doctor ever said that you have a heart condition and that you should only do physical activity recommended by a doctor?
