NEW MINIMUM FITNESS REQUIREMENTS FOR FBI SPECIAL AGENTS

Image result for FBI fitnessThe Federal Bureau of Investigations abandoned physical requirements since 1999.  The agency had requirements in place from 1980 to 1999 but for some reason, perhaps due to 9/11, physical fitness performance guidelines fell by the wayside. This changed in 2015 when FBI Director James Comey reintroduced minimum physical requirements. All Special Agents must meet the following physical requirements.

  • 38 sit-ups in a minute

Women, ages 20-29, must complete:

  • 32 sit-ups in a minute
  • 15 pushups without stopping.
