Suffolk County Personal Trainer Prepares Candidates For Police Physical Tests

by PRC Agency PR

While not as rigorous as Navy Seals training, the local police department focuses on the same qualities that special forces value, that is, functional strength.

Understanding the need of individuals who wish to join the police force, Long Island Sports Training has created a training program aimed at conquering the police fitness test and similar events that aim to measure athletic performance.

This program was conceived to address the demand of prospective candidates who want to pass the fitness requirements of the New York State Police Force, which also covers both Suffolk and Nassau counties.

If you're one of them, this dedicated program will prepare you for the unique fitness requirements of the police force while providing vast improvements in your cardiovascular fitness and overall health!

According to the New York State Police Force, its Physical Ability Test assesses candidates’ “flexibility, dynamic strength, and cardiovascular endurance.” Three types of exercises are used to measure these qualities: sit-ups, push-ups, and a 1.5-mile run.

To pass the test, a candidate must reach the minimum targets for each exercise. For example, a person under 29 must perform 35 sit-ups and 18 push-ups within one minute to be marked as passed.

So out of all exercises, why calisthenics?

Long Island Sports Training explained that law enforcement agencies often emphasize calisthenics and functional fitness exercises, as they resemble the actual movements that police officers are expected to perform while on duty, such as running, climbing, and jumping.

“The weight training you do at your local gym is not enough to prepare you for this type of test,” a spokesperson for the company said. “You need functional strength and agility, and this is what we offer in our personal training program.”

Long Island Sports Training’s program is characterized by high-intensity aerobic training, which is suitable for building cardiovascular fitness, reducing body fat, and enhancing strength and athletic performance within a short period.

Sessions are led by coaches who hold certifications in personal training from respected organizations like the National Council on Strength and Fitness, SafeSport, and the HEADS UP Concussion in Youth Sports initiative, among many others.

And this program is not just for police academy hopefuls. If you want to join the fire department, this program is the best way to prepare for an equally challenging physical test.
