However, some should check with their doctor, another health care practitioner who is licensed to diagnose, or a qualified exercise professional before they start becoming much more physically active. This questionnaire will tell you whether it is necessary for you to seek further advice before becoming more physically active or engaging in a fitness appraisal.
