CIMSPA Gym Practical Briefing
Pre-Activity Readiness Questionnaires
It's essential that you have pre-screened your client so that they are able to exercise. There is not a compulsory form to use and you can find/make your own if it is something you would like to do. The gold standard questions however, are to be found on the CSEP Get Active Questionnaire (formerly PARQ)
