Successful programming to take you beyond the fitness requirements for WAPOL and ADF Entry
Welcome to The McMillan Fitness Physical entry testing programming! This program is specifically designed to assist you in exceeding the fitness requirements of Police and military entry and preparing you for the rigorous fitness training you will undergo once you have gained entry. You’ll receive an effective and comprehensive exercise program; designed to give you the edge through effective techniques, strength training, endurance and speed.
McMillan Fitness has a specific strength and cardio program to get you over the line and prepared for either your six months in the academy or the 80+ days of military entry training.
There are several steps used to attain these requirements
Step One – Initial Fitness Testing
This is your starting point to ensure you know exactly what is required to pass the test physically rather than just reading about the process online. You will be put through an Illinois agility test to gauge your initial score. From there you will be assessed on technique and where you can improve on to knock vital time, from your first test score. You will be required to run the beep test to gauge your current fitness level. During the test you will be coached in how to keep pace with each level so you don’t expend too much energy and burn out early. The push up test is used to assess the areas you lack in to allow you to perform the academy requirements. from here we move to step two.
Step Two – Goal Setting
All too often those trying to pass fitness testing don’t really know where to start. McMillan Fitness will prepare a comprehensive training program and track your progress regularly whilst increasing the load to keep you advancing beyond your requirements
Step Three – Training
Your training begins immediately and doesn’t just cover the fitness level required to pass the test. You’ll be shown techniques to improve your performances and taught how to mentally overcome those little obstacles that lurk in the back of your mind and often hold you back from succeeding.
Step Four – Motivation and Support
Reaching your goals in life is never easy and one of the greatest obstacles to achieving them is staying motivated. You should firstly remind yourself that you have a time frame in which to succeed. Throughout your preparation you will have to overcome the biggest obstacle and that is the realisation you may be further from your goals that you expected and the entry test is closer than you could imagine. Fear not, this is normal and McMillan Fitness is experienced in breaking down those barriers and motivating you to exceed what you might think is not possible.
Step Five – Monitor your Progress
Monitoring and recording your progress is what McMillan Fitness do constantly to keep you motivated and show how quickly you are progressing during your journey towards your expected fitness level. Using a number of effective recording techniques you’ll see all areas of improvement and fully understand how you are progressing.
Step Six – Maintenance
Well done, you reached your ultimate goal! Maintaining your new, fit and healthy self can be just as hard as reaching it. Once you have achieved your final target don’t sever ties with all the programme and lifestyle changes that helped you get there. Keep up good relationships with your fitness professionals and keep yourself educated so that you avoid falling behind before you actually start your journey through the academy or military training facility
