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.
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.
Here are the scores USAFA is looking at this week for the PFT as well as what they looked at last week for the AFT.
