Physical Agility Workshops - Rochester Police Department

Let our physical trainers coach you to success. Preparation for the physical agility exam is the key to success and knowing how to prepare can be just as important.  Agility-WorkshopDownload the physical agility information sheet.  View the physical agility video.

Generally, the Rochester Police Department (RPD) finds that nearly half of the prospective candidates who take the physical agility test do not pass and therefore, are eliminated from consideration and cannot continue in the hiring process. As a result, many good candidates are lost early in the hiring process. 

Our physical agility workshops help prepare you for the exam by showing you the proper form for push-ups and sit-ups, tips on maintaining endurance during the 1 ½ mile run, going over workout schedules, providing nutrition tips and running you through a practice physical agility exam. 

Do not miss the opportunity to improve your chances for success in becoming a Rochester Police Officer. Join our next physical agility preparation course.
