  • Been diagnosed with asthma, diabetes or heart trouble.
  • Pain in your arm, neck or chest when you are active.
  • Frequent dizzy spells.
  • Breathing trouble after physical activity.
  • Problems affecting your bones or joints that make it hard to walk.
  • Led a sedentary lifestyle and you are older than 40.
