Last week, the Prep School had their Spring PFT and we were there to catch a glimpse of the C/C's as they went through each station.
The PFT has 5 stations - the Pull-up, Long-jump, Sit-ups, Push-ups and finally the 600-yard run. The C/C's are scored at each location with roughly 2 - 2 and a half minutes to complete each.
Station 1 - Pull-Ups
Station 2 - Long Jump
Station 3 - Sit-Ups
Station 4 - Push-Ups
Station 5 - 600-Yard Run
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
This test is the same test given up at the Academy, which helps prepare the Preppies physically for what to expect in their coming years up on the hill for the PFT. At the Academy, 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.
