The Air Force Basic Military Training Physical Fitness Test is a three-event physical performance test used to test your endurance. It measures your physical strength and abilities, and your cardio-respiratory fitness. You are required to pass the Basic Military Training PFT to graduate and continue on to your Technical School.
The three PFT events are one minute of push-ups, one minute of sit-ups, and a timed 1.5 mile run. The PFT is normally performed in workout gear and the run is completed in running shoes.
While at BMT you will perform physical conditioning six days a week with alternating days of muscular endurance exercises and aerobic running. Boot Camp will be much easier for you if you prepare in advance and are able to meet the following fitness level before you arrive at BMT. Click here to see the fitness charts
