TAGGER Joel Wilkinson confirmed his status as the fittest player on the Suns list after dominating the gruelling two kilometre time trial in Arizona today.

Wilkinson finished six seconds ahead of Jeremy Taylor in the gut-busting hit out, which kicked off a tough second day for the 42-strong Gold Coast squad.

Wilkinson was pleased with the effort but said the job was far from done yet.

"It was a similar time to what I ran in the second 2km time trial in Arizona last year, so it's good to know I've adapted quicker to the conditions this year," Wilkinson said.

"But my aim is to be the fittest player in the competition, so I have to push myself harder every day."

Some handled the effects of running at high altitude better than others.

New recruit Tom Murphy said it felt like he had a constantly tightening belt strapped around his chest, while Jared Brennan likened the time trial to carrying 59kg in a Melbourne Cup.

The two kilometre dash was followed by 40 minutes of trail running before a solid weight session and one hour of body balance in the afternoon.

Suns new fitness boss Stephen Schwerdt said he was impressed by the squad's attitude in the opening days.

"I love their attitude and willingness to do whatever has been asked," Schwerdt said.

"But the test is still to come and we are only in the early stages of the camp and everyone is still pretty upbeat.

"But they will get tired and grumpy and start missing home and that's when it will get really challenging."
