I wrote a few weeks ago about the PARQ, physical activity readiness questionnaire.  Remember it is a series of  questions that helps you and fitness professionals determine if you are ready for exercise or need medical clearance.  Last night I found a  new questionnaire called EASY.  It's purpose is to screen adults of any age for physical activity.  While the PARQ stated that it is for individuals 65 and younger, the EASY does not have any age restriction. After checking it out myself I realized that the questions answered under certain circumstances would direct you to other questions before giving you the go ahead to exercise. You can also print out the results for your doctor.  Check it out.
