Air Force Fitness Program
The Air Force Fitness Program goal is to motivate Airmen to participate in a year-round physical conditioning program that emphasizes total fitness, to include proper aerobic conditioning, strength and flexibility training, and healthy eating. Health benefits from an active lifestyle will increase productivity, optimize health, and decrease absenteeism while maintaining a higher level of readiness.
1. Body composition evaluated by abdominal circumference measurements
2. Aerobic component evaluated by the 1.5-mile timed run
3. Muscular fitness component evaluated by the number of pushups and sit-ups completed within one minute
Members not medically cleared to complete the 1.5-mile run will be assessed through an alternative aerobic test consisting of a 1.0-mile walk as determined by the exercise physiologist/fitness program manager unless otherwise exempted.
Members will receive age and gender-specific composite scores based on the following maximum component scores: 60 points for aerobic, 20 points for body composition, 10 points for pushups and 10 points for sit-ups.
Those with duty limiting conditions prohibiting them from performing one or more components of the fitness assessment will have a composite score calculated on the assessed components; however, they will only receive an overall "Pass" or "Fail" rating. Members must achieve a minimum of 75 adjusted points, based on points available, and meet minimum component standards.
Must have composite score of 75.0 AND meet all requirements to pass test
