The Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT) is a muscular strength and endurance and cardiovascular fitness test that includes two minutes of push-ups, two minutes of sit-ups and a two mile run. The scoring is based on age range and gender with a point scale of zero to 100. Each participant must achieve 60 points or better in each event. Failing any one of the three events will cause you to fail the entire test. Soldiers are required to take the APFT twice a year.

what people are saying
A truly amazing program that helped me take my fitness to a higher level. The instructors have the ability to put people from all fitness and athletic levels into a position to max out their own personal goals and abilities. The classes are constantly challenging, fun, and leave me feeling a mix of completely exhausted and energized from the great workout. Instructors successfully walk the line of being very strong with the motivation techniques while always being positive and uplifting, never singling anyone out in a negative manner. - Sean
