The 32-item questionnaire gauges whether someone may be ready to begin exercising or should seek clearance from their physician, although it is not a substitute for medical advice.

Federal health officials recommend two and a half hours of exercise weekly to help maintain good health and a normal weight. Being overweight or obese has been linked to health problems such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

AFAA is a widely recognized fitness educator organization. It has issued more than 250,000 certifications to fitness instructors since 1983.
