Fit For Duty: The Evolution of Code 5 Fitness

Code 5 Fitness originated as a grassroots training program tailored for law enforcement officers. Recognizing the specific physical demands of police, sheriffs, corrections, fire, and military roles, founder Tricia Dong, a former VPD officer, developed a training approach focused on functional movement rather than traditional muscle-centric workouts. This approach ensures participants are “Fit For Duty!” – prepared for the rigorous requirements of their careers from application to active duty.

As word spread about the effective and enjoyable training methods employed by Tricia, Code 5 Fitness classes expanded to include a diverse mix of participants, ranging from sworn members and police/fire applicants to army reservists, athletes, and individuals of all fitness levels. The concept of “Fit for Duty!” now extends beyond law enforcement to encompass personal accountability and readiness in various aspects of life.

Code 5 Fitness caters to individuals serious about training for careers in law enforcement and public safety, offering programs suitable for aspiring applicants, those preparing for fitness assessments, and individuals seeking challenging workouts to maintain peak fitness levels.

Police Training Class - Physical Test Practice


POPAT, PARE, COPAT, and SOPAT are physical abilities tests used by law enforcement agencies to assess candidates’ fitness levels and readiness for duty. These tests typically involve a series of tasks simulating real-world law enforcement scenarios, such as obstacle courses, pursuit simulations, and physical endurance challenges. Passing these tests is often a requirement for entry into law enforcement training programs or employment.



Police Officer Physical Abilities Test

The POPAT is a rigorous physical fitness exam tailored for aspiring police officers. It includes obstacle courses, stair climbs, and simulated pursuits to gauge candidates’ readiness for law enforcement duties.



Physical Abilities Requirement Evaluation

The PARE is a standardized fitness assessment used by Canadian law enforcement agencies to measure candidates’ physical capabilities. It tests agility, endurance, and strength, ensuring candidates are prepared for the challenges of police work.



Correctional Officer Physical Abilities Test

The COPAT assesses the physical fitness of candidates seeking roles as correctional officers. It evaluates abilities such as restraint techniques, cell searches, and emergency response, essential for maintaining security in correctional facilities.



Sheriff Officer Physical Abilities Test

The SOPAT evaluates candidates’ physical preparedness for sheriff officer positions. It tests skills like warrant execution, courtroom security, and document service, ensuring candidates can handle the diverse duties of law enforcement within a sheriff’s department.
