Exercise and Sport Science Australia, Fitness Australia and Sports Medicine Australia’s new pre-exercise screening system is called the APSS (Adult Pre-Exercise Screening System). It is consistent with nationally recognised professional practice and has been designed in accordance with the most current evidence about exercise risk. The APSS screening tool/form is available at the Fitness Australia website.

Based on this tool and in conjunction with AFIRM research, the APSS has been developed into an interactive, online tool providing an easy and effective way for all fitness industry professionals to undertake pre-exercise screening.
