Fitness test

Recommended Posts

I had my fitness test this week, i passed!!

I found the bleep test to be harder than some on this forum claimed.. definitely not a walking pace, more of a gentle jog at the start, and I was definitely breathing heavily by the end!

Well done.

I was a Special with South Wales a few years back. When I did the fitness I was certainly breathing heavily after it, although I was a 20 a day smoker at the time.

Compared to other forces though ( mainly scottish forces) the fitness test is quite easy. Scottish forces have to complete a 1.5 mile run in a specified time or reach level 9.1 on the bleep test ( weather dependant)

I'm still hoping Gwent will call soon with an interview date.

Good luck for the rest of your recruitment.
