  • Health problems - The practitioner needs to know the symptons of any health problems the person has that could affect their ability to excercise, for eg they could have high blood pressure or asthma. 
  • Current medication - Some medications can affect a persons ability to exercise, eg by making them drowsy or affecting their coordination
  •  Previous fitness treatments - to know what has or hasnt worked before. 
  • Other lifestyle factors - eg a person who smokes or drinks easily should cut down on these so they can get the most
