This article presents information regarding the first physical fitness training uniform of the U.S., that will soon hit the streets. The uniform will have a two-to-three-year phase-in period. The running suit costs about $100, and the shorts and shirt about $25.

Although personal preference is the rule for shoes. They must be conservative in design and color. Saluting will not be required while wearing the uniform, and jewelry wear will be the same as with other uniforms, so long as safety is taken into consideration.
