Fall PFT

The Cadet Wing participated in their Fall Semester PFT this week and we were able to stop by for a few rounds. 

As a Cadet at the United States Air Force Academy, they will take physical fitness tests each semester to measure their overall strength and conditioning. Proficiency is required in both the Physical Fitness Test (PFT) and the Aerobic Fitness Test (AFT). Cadets are required to take both the AFT and PFT each semester of their cadet career.

Crunches 71 95 71 95
Push-Ups 48 72 29 48

The fitness-testing program serves many purposes, including:

  • Promoting maximum fitness among the cadet wing
  • Developing a foundation for a lifetime of fitness
  • Recognizing cadets who excel in maintaining their personal fitness

Those members of the Cadet wing who achieve the maximum point total on either the PFT or AFT belong to the prestigious 500 Club. Those few Cadets who maximize their scores on both of these belong to the exclusive 1000 Club.

We were able to catch a glimpse of the Cadets at each station.
