What is the MZ-Beep Test?

MZ-Beep Test is a simple shuttle run assessment that’s used as a global standard for fitness testing, particularly in the military and public or private service sectors.

It’s a classic fitness staple that requires minimal equipment and takes less than 15 minutes to complete. Decide on a shuttle length – 15m or 20m – and set up two cones or markers at that distance apart.

Every time you hear a beep, run to the other end. When you can’t make the distance in time for two beeps in a row, the test is over. You will receive a score based on your performance. Find out more about how a beep test is scored.

Who is the MZ-Beep Test for?

Alternatively, public and private sector fitness professionals can use the test to help new recruits or trainees pass any minimum requirements for physical activity.

For the individual, the beauty of the MZ-Beep Test is in its simplicity. Challenge yourself over time and see how long it takes you to improve your score.
