PAR-Q+ Reminder for all Fitness Leaders
We would like to remind all BCRPA Registered Fitness Leaders of the importance of having participants and/or clients complete the PAR-Q+ prior to participating in any physical activity. This is a requirement for your insurance coverage provided through HUB as part of your registration with BCRPA. Note: Although Personal Trainers are not covered by this standard insurance policy they should follow the same PAR-Q+ requirement to conform to best practices.
The only exception to this would be for drop-in programs where the expectation would be to have a poster of the PAR-Q on the wall for participants to self-assess.
Please note, that if a participant/client answers “yes” to any of the PAR-Q+ questions it is your duty to ensure they have received clearance from a medical professional before proceeding with the program or activity.
