Safety

Having potential participants fill out the Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PARQ) is only the first step towards ensuring the safety of the participants; it is also important to make sure they stay safe during the LIFE Program. Follow these guidelines to make sure that the LIFE Program is a safe and enjoyable experience for participants.
