Reporter Bryan West endures the fitness test to see what is takes.

PHOENIX - The FBI is looking to hire 700 new agents, could you pass the physical fitness test?

The test is made up of five components:

  • Maximum number of sit-ups in one minute
  • A timed 300 meter sprint
  • Maximum number of continuous push-ups
  • A timed 1.5 mile run
  • Hanging pull-ups
The test takes months to prepare for and is based on a point system grid. To pass a person must get at least 12 points in the first four events (with a minimum of one point in each of those events).
