800m Sprint & 400m Sprint: One foot in front of the other. This test will be conducted at Douglas Middle School track on Saturday June 14th.
There will be no make up dates. If you miss out, you miss out. You cannot go back and re-attempt a tested movement on another day once it has been recorded. The test will be strictly proctored to ensure quality movements and consistency. If you cannot do a movement at all, then it is what it is, and we know what needs to be worked on.
This testing process is designed to give athletes a measuring stick to which they can compare their general starting fitness levels and subsequent improvement as time progresses. This will be a lot of fun and a motivator for individuals. It will also give the CFEPOC training staff the ability to focus on weak areas so that they can be improved upon and implemented in WOD's. We strongly encourage everyone to take part in this challenge and work to improve your skills and abilities.
