Hi, all. I’ve been gone a while but now I have to come crawling back for some help on a little problem I have. The United Nations security officers here in Vienna are finally going to be required to go through a yearly fitness test. This is a project I’ve been working on for quite a while and now it’s going to happen. I have been picked to design the fitness test and am trying to get as many examples of fitness testing and scoring tables as I can. So far, the plan is:
- 1 1/2 mile run
- 200 yard dash
- Pull-ups (men), Bent-arm hang (women)
- Bodyweight bench press for max reps or max effort bench (undecided).
What I still need are examples of grading scales for the events which take age and sex into consideration. This has to be a test that is easily administered and reasonable enough for approval. I realize that this may not be the best possible way to test these officers, but it’s a start and much better than nothing. It’s also cheap… big advantage… no money for an obstacle course, unfortunately.
If anyone is in police-type work and could give me a hand with this I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks in advance for all the help.
