Little is known about the physical fitness profiles of the young Swiss population. The purpose of the present work is to describe the data of the physical performance tests at the compulsory Swiss Army recruitment. The 12-minute running test, the standing long jump, and the five-meter pole-climbing test were continuously part of the physical performance test for more than 20 years. These data show a decrease in aerobic endurance and pole-climbing performance from 1987 to 2002. After 2002 a reversal of trend occurred for the aerobic endurance performance. Muscle fitness, assessed by standing long jump, has not changed. The inconsistent data do not confirm the common opinion of a decreasing general physical fitness level among Swiss men.
