Train to Serve – Prior to basic, boot camp or police academy, personnel line up to take their physical fitness tests (PFT). Though each service and agency differs in testing exercises and measuring criteria, most personnel labor over this event for several weeks prior. But for those who properly prepare themselves, the PFT can be just another workout.
The anxiety felt by most service members is largely due to performing within a time limit. The more your workouts are timed the better you are at “pacing” yourself, thus eliminating most anxiety.
FIT 4 Duty is designed for those individuals seeking a career in law enforcement and fire service who need to prepare for the entry-level physical fitness test. Skills required for the physical fitness test include sit-ups, push-ups, running specific distances in set times, climbing a fence/wall, and lifting weights that simulate the real-life weight of a person or object. This is an introductory class that will focus on the necessary training required to successfully pass these tests. We recommend that this class be part of an existing workout regimen to properly prepare each candidate for the total academy experience.
