Train­ing Tips:

1. You should be train­ing on a reg­u­lar basis, at least 3 times per week.

2. You should be train­ing both your anaer­o­bic and aer­o­bic car­dio­vas­cu­lar sys­tems.

3. The test­ing requires you to use your upper body, your core, and your low­er body. Strength in all 3 areas is para­mount.

4.  Wear clean and dry run­ning shoes with good tread for your test­ing ses­sion.  Shoes with worn out treads or that have exces­sive dirt embed­ded in the soles reduce trac­tion for the pulling and push­ing phase of the test.  Good footwear is impor­tant!


Per­son­al Train­ing and Small Group Fit­ness:

We have sev­er­al per­son­al train­ing options to help you over­come this stage of the recruit­ing process. We have the abil­i­ty to offer you 1 on 1 per­son­al train­ing to improve your con­di­tion­ing and assist you in over­com­ing the Phys­i­cal Con­trol Sim­u­la­tor (aka. “The Push Pull Machine”).

Have a group of friends pur­su­ing the same goal? Why not train togeth­er! These ses­sions focus specif­i­cal­ly on phys­i­cal con­di­tion­ing and over­com­ing the Phys­i­cal Con­trol Sim­u­la­tor.
