If you answered NO to all the questions you can be reasonably sure that you can:
· Start becoming more physically active – start slow and build up
· Take part in a fitness appraisal – this is a good way to determine your basic fitness level. It is recommended that you have your blood pressure evaluated.
However, delay becoming more active if:
· You are not feeling well because of temporary illness such as cold or flu.
· If you are or maybe pregnant – talk to your doctor first.
Please Note: If your health changes so that you then answer YES to any of the above questions, tell your fitness or health professional. Ask whether you should change your physical activity plan.
