Get Active Questionnaire 

The Get Active Questionnaire by CSEP is a 2-page, self administered, pre-participation for exercise screening tool.

The questionnaire with its accompanying Reference Document enables you to make an informed decision whether you should seek further advice from a health care provider or qualified exercise professional before becoming more physically active.  The Get Active Questionnaire is the current CSEP-endorsed evidence-based pre-screening tool and replaces previous tools.

Completion of an evidence-based screening tool is a required element for qualified exercise professionals. While CSEP's Get Active Questionnaire is the current tool we endorse several pre-participation screening tools exist that can be used such as: The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM)/American Heart Association (AHA) Pre-participation Questionnaire (AAPQ), the Adult Pre-Exercise Screening System (APSS) used in Australia, and the current edition of the Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire Plus (PAR-Q+)
