Military Physical Fitness Training and Testing

Military Physical Fitness Training and Testing PSP is fully committed to offering our military members safe, effective and highly professional fitness training and testing. Research-based, and in full compliance with all CAF regulations and standards, we believe our programming and staff “set the bar” for excellence in the pursuit of optimal health and performance. We lead over 2,000 fitness classes annually. Many units take advantage of our services, implementing unit specific testing and training sessions. When unit training just “can’t work” (for the individual and/or unit) members can take advantage of our “Early Bird Classes” and/or “Fitness Development Classes” as advertised in this brochure. Yet another option is our “Fit-Mix”/noon hour Program (FM). This program (offered over noon hour Monday through Friday) is designed to provide a mixture of training modalities to a mixture of people (thus the name “Fit-Mix”). We really “mix things up” in these classes to keep it interesting and effective for all! Classes include HITT (high intensity tactical training), spinning, FORCE conditioning, total task circuit, running, yoga, etc. The schedule changes monthly so check out the current schedule at www.cafconnection.ca. Everyone is welcome to attend these “open” classes including all military members, DND/NPF employees, Defence Team family members, and any Col J.J. Parr Sports Centre community card holder/drop-in. FORCE testing is scheduled every week (bookings done through your unit coordinator). We also have the capability to offer any other approved CAF fitness test (i.e. Firefighters test, Basic Military Swim Test, SAR testing, etc.) as well as many other standardized evaluations. Simply contact our Fitness Coordinator at 780-840-8000, ext. 8194 to coordinate required specialty testing. Military members are reminded of the following preevaluation instructions when preparing for their annual FORCE test… Participants should not • Exercise 6 hours prior to the test • Consume alcohol for at least 6 hours prior to the test • Eat, smoke, or take stimulants (tea, coffee, energy drinks, pharmaceuticals, etc.) at least 2 hours prior to the test

34

www.cafconnection.ca • 2019-2020

(Note: non-compliance with the above instructions does not necessarily mean postponement of testing, however participants are advised that it can have a negative effect on their results.)

The Cold Lake Air Force Museum grounds are home to a small airpark. Five RCAF aircraft are displayed at ground level, as well as an accessible dome. Inside the museum, the CLAFM preserves and exhibits the history of 4 Wing Cold Lake, from its earliest development to present day.
