I’m curious if there might be more to obtaining medical clearance from a client with many risk factors. I have a client who has been sedentary for a long time, has chest pain, is taking medications for a heart condition. We went through the PAR-Q and told her she needs a medical release form (which I provided) from her doctor, and we can then start an exercise program. Is there anything that I can do on my end to make it easier for the client to get medical release? Trying to stay professional as possible and go the extra 10% 🙂
Hello Tyler Freitag,
To make it easier for the client you can fax the Physician’s Approval for Client to Exercise form to the doctor. The doctor will check a box for clearance or not with restrictions or not.
The chest pain and meds suggests a visit to the doctor. An ounce of prevention is truly worth a pound of cure.
The others explain well the need to starting out slowly with a close eye and listening to your gut instinct. The client hires us for our best professional advice.
