Applying for the police force?

Those who are applying or hoping to apply to join the police force, fire service or armed forces would be familiar with the fitness test that needs to be passed. I’ve heard it called the ‘beep test’, or the shuttle run test. Basically you need to run 20m in a certain amount of time, and there is a cd that you can play that beeps at the times when you need to turn around.

We have been asked several times if the Library has a copy of this CD. We now have found a supplier and added two copies to our collection available for loan. You can find the CD here now in our catalogue, or on the shelf with other titles on fitness and exercise in 613.71.

It’s also a great tool for general aerobic fitness, no matter what your career goals are!
