I believe you can. The ability will have 'only use during your turn' if restricted.

Skids and Roland are at a location. An enemy with 3 health is on top of Skids. Skids has a Machete. Roland has Beat Cop.

For one reason or another, Skids really wants to go before Roland, but it's also very important that he kills the enemy without using more than one action and he'll die if he incurs attacks of opportunity.

Action 1, Skids slashes away at the enemy for two damage. Roland, during Skids's turn, then discards his Beat Cop to deal the final 1 dmg to the enemy. Skids, a very happy chap now, clicks for a resource, pays for his Leo (relieved that he has a dmg/hor soak), clicks again to enter Hallway.

edit: Oh. Oh! Ha, I see now in the thread title that the question is specifying Physical Training. Sure, now I see why the replies are as they are. The replies did puzzle me a bit, I admit. I just kind of idly clicked into the thread and read the opening question and based a response off that. Apologies.

So in the Rules Reference you can see a timing chart with all the player windows listed. So the lightning triggered abilities can be used during any of those player windows throughout the round (keep in mind those are different than fast abilities which can trigger at other different times).

However based on your Title for this forum, you're asking if you can use physical training during another player's action phase. Yes technically you can because there is no limit on using it during your turn only, it's meant for player action windows. BUT, the text specifically states "You get +[] for this skill test" so the benefit cannot be given to another investigator.

Perhaps it's possible at some point that there will be encounter cards which ask for skill tests from everyone at a location? Agnes plays Drawn To The Flame, in a future expansion perhaps an encounter card 'Foul Emissions' is drawn which wants all local investigators to test Willpower or suffer 1 dmg.

There is card in an upcoming expansion that causes everyone to draw an encounter card. You might need to trigger something like this then.
