The US Army Physical Fitness Test, or APFT, consists of three events- push-ups, sit-ups, and a two mile run. In order to pass the APFT, you must score at least 60 points in each event, for a total minimum score of 180 points. You can score a maximum of 100 points in each event, although there are "extended scales" that some units use for scoring physical training competitions that have scale past 100 points. The APFT is taken in a specific order, as proscriped by US Army Field Manual 7-22.

The AWCP ensures every soldier is healthy, physically fit, and combat ready. The program requires you to meet specific weight standards, which are based on their height, weight, and gender. Under the AWCP you will be required to weigh-in at least once every six months. This may be done at the same time as your Army Physical Fitness Test. In most cases, failure to pass the Army's minimum weight or body fat percentage standards will make you ineligible for promotion, transfer, reenlistment or opportunities to attend professional schools.
