Health Commitment Statement (HCS)

back to list

Considering whether you should use the Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PARQ)? The Health Commitment Statement sets the standards that health & fitness centres and users can reasonably expect from each other. The HCS is the evolution of the PARQ, which has existed for the past 15 years. The HCS reflects Government policy and legal trends, which recognises that individuals are able, when given the appropriate information about the risks inherent in getting active, to make informed decisions about their own health and wellbeing. Ultimately there are very few conditions which cannot be improved by taking regular exercise, and the HCS seeks to make it as easy as possible to get active.
