Guide to Buying the Beep Test

This aerobic fitness test is also known as the Multistage Fitness (MSFT), Beep, Bleep & Yo-Yo Endurance test. For comprehensive information about the test, see the Beep Test Home. You can download for free the beep test mp3 file from this site, though you may wish to buy it from elsewhere, and the information below will help you do that.

The beep test is available on cd, mp3, phone app and in the past as an audio tape. Each format has its advantages and disadvantages. The digital formats are preferred as the timing cannot be affected by tape stretching, and with the cd it is easier to play selected tracks and return to the start if required. If you have purchased an audio tape version (no longer available), you should also read the information about calibrating the tape.
