Preparing to become a member of an elite SWAT squad requires determination, courage, and top physical conditioning. Carrying wounded hostages, breaking down barricades, and rappelling down the sides of skyscrapers are just some of the demanding tasks faced by our SWAT teams, requiring incredible agility, strength, and endurance.

Now, in The S.W.A.T. Workout, you too can achieve the levels of fitness required by these elite operators. Its specially designed programs utilize calisthenics, weights, and speed drills to prepare you for the rigorous physical fitness entry exams required for SWAT teams. If you are already a SWAT member, our special programs will keep your physical performance levels at their highest.

The S.W.A.T. Workout provides an intense exercise routine for fitness enthusiasts in and out of uniform. For everyone who aspires to serve their country in the war on crime and terror, it is essential.
