How fit do you need to be?

Police Fit fitness app

The Police Fit app offers a four- and eight-week program depending on your current fitness level. It can also be used by anyone else wanting to maintain their fitness.

The four-week program will suit those who exercise regularly with an emphasis on technique.

The eight-week program is suitable if you don’t regularly exercise and need to improve their technique.

The Police Fit program delivers a specific set of exercises designed for each individual fitness test component.

Whether you need help with your prone bridge hold, your beep test or your swimming, each specific exercise is tailored to give you the training you need to pass.
