However, some should check with their doctor, another health care practitioner who is licensed to diagnose, or a qualified exercise professional before they startbecoming 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 engagingin a fitness appraisal.
