Guts & Hellcats 1st Physical Fitness Test (PFT)
During BCT the Basics will take PFT and AFT to measure their overall strength and conditioning.
Proficiency is required in both tests in order to graduate. This test serves as a baseline and this test is different from the Candidate Fitness Assessment (CFA) that they took when applying to the Academy.
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. Below is a table with the test elements along with the mean and maximum possible scores,courtesy of www.academyadmissions.com.
