In this paper fatigue for professional soldier caused by active physical activity and endurance limits is investigated. The resulting workload is one of indicators of how training, preparedness and other acquired work skills can contribute to the human body being a large working “machine”. Ergometry test was conducted and field test for soldier fitness condition and energy expenditure was measured regarding the level of body's metabolism. Field test consisted of three runs on a polygon of 10 km and different workloads, the energy consumption was monitored. Work load was compared with Occupational Safety and Health law acts. The results showed difference in workload conditions and hart rate which allowed to determine rest spots and safety in training conditions.
