Regular physical activity is fun and healthy and increasingly more people are starting to become more active every day. Being more active is very safe for most people. However, you should check with your doctor before you begin any new physical activity routine.

Common sense is your best guide when answering these questions. For all members of your Membership, please read the questions carefully and answer each one honestly by checking YES or NO.
Any questions I had were answered to my full satisfaction. I also understand that this physical activity clearance will become invalid if my condition changes in order for me to answer YES to any of the questions above.
