Army Physical Readiness Test

To the best of our knowledge, any attempt to replace the current Army APFT has been halted.  We have lined through the text on this page until we know more.



The replacement for the Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT) was reported on in a recent news article.  The replacement is called the Army Physical Readiness Test (APRT) and will be 5 events instead of the current three for the APFT.

What are the events?

The five events of the Army Physical Readiness Test are:

  • 60-yard shuttle run
  • one-minute rower
  • standing long-jump
  • one-minute push-up
  • 1.5 mile run


When will it be implemented Army-wide?

The new APRT is going to be tested at 8 locations with multiple units to set standards.  According to the news article:

"The pilot currently plans to align age categories for the test scores with the American College of Sports Medicine and Cooper Institute, broadening age categories to under 30, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, and 60 and above, for both genders.  

Following the establishment of standards and a thorough review, likely lasting through the summer, the tests can then be approved for Army-wide execution. Implementing the new tests is the final step in the Soldier Athlete initiative to better prepare Soldiers for strenuous training and the challenges of full-spectrum operations."


The Army Combat Readiness Test:

The Army will also be introducing an Army Combat Readiness Test (ACRT).
