The physical fitness test will consist of five exercises given on the same day at the Fayetteville Police Department. They will be administered, observed, and graded by Fayetteville Police Department fitness instructors. For testing, you will need to wear proper clothing, i.e. t-shirt / sweatshirt, shorts / sweats and comfortable running shoes.
Prior to each individual exercise, the fitness instructor will provide information on the proper technique and explain the exercise with special instructions. Participants must complete and obtain a minimum score / maximum time on each exercise to pass the physical fitness test.
The Fayetteville Police Department also provides a resource for preparation for the physical fitness portion of the test, which can be found in the marked links at the bottom of this page.

After the lift is complete, the spotters will place the barbell on the rack. During the press, the subject's buttocks cannot raise off the bench and feet must remain on the floor or bench.
