As a fitness professional, either a Personal Trainer working one to one with clients or as a group exercise instructor. One of your duties of care is to ensure that your participants are screened before commencing a fitness session or exercise programme.

This is normally achieved through a PARQ Form or informal verbal PARQ for participants attending regular group exercise. If during the health screening process, your client requires to be referred to their GP for blood pressure or another medical condition, it is recommended you obtain clearance from the clients GP so that they can counties their exercise programme.
