Physical Fitness Readiness Program
Did you know that the Recruiting Detail offers a training program to assist you in preparing for the physical fitness test and the physical demands of the police academy? It is recommended the applicant be able to meet the minimum requirements of the physical fitness test prior to submitting the application. The readiness program will provide the interested applicant with details on proper form/technique for each required exercise and a practice physical fitness test to determine their current abilities. Attending these sessions will physically and mentally prepare the interested applicant for the road ahead.
The program is held at the San Antonio Police Academy at 12200 S.E. Loop 410 San Antonio, TX 78221. The program is offered on the following days:
Tuesday/Thursday 6:30 am – 7:45 am
Saturday 8:00 am – 9:30 am
You are not required to RSVP for the sessions. Arrive at the location at a minimum of 15 minutes prior to stretch and prepare for the rigorous workout. The sessions are held in the academy gym which is located west of the front doors. You should bring a sweat towel and water.
