Physical Fitness

0399

Soldiers in the Army need to be physically fit at all times to meet the demands of every situation we find ourselves in. The Army Physical Fitness Test is the standard for all ROTC Cadets while attending college. This test will test your Aerobic conditioning with a 2-mile run, the muscular strength of your chest, shoulders, and triceps with 2 minutes of push-ups, and test the endurance of your core with 2 minutes of sit-ups. Below you will find a calculator to gauge your performance and improvements. For our students to successfully graduate and commission as Army Officers, they will need to pass the new Army Combat Fitness Test (ACFT). Our students participate in physical fitness training three days a week, where we focus on overall fitness and prepare them for the ACFT. Cadets should improve physical fitness outside of PT as well. For an overview of the ACFT, please visit the official Army ACFT webpage.
