The Army PRT App is for the U.S. Army Soldier who needs a quick and easy solution to calculate the Physical Fitness Test and Body Composition Test (weigh in or tape test) scores.
The Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT) has two events: the Body Composition Assessment (BCA) and the Physical Fitness Test (PFT).
The APFT is a three-event physical performance test used to assess endurance. It is a simple way to measure your physical strengths, abilities, and cardio-respiratory fitness. The intent of the APFT is to provide a baseline assessment regardless of your Military Occupational Specialty. The APFT is to be taken at least twice a calendar year and you must be able to meet the minimum standards to be eligible for promotion, transfer, and to attend Army schools.
The three PFT events are two minutes of push ups, two minutes of sit ups, and a timed 2-mile run. Your results from each event are assigned a score. To pass you must Score 180 points or higher with at least 60 points in each event. Your age, gender and the amount of repetitions or time elapsed for each event determines your score. Unlike other military endurance tests, the APFT is normally performed in workout gear and running shoes.
The Body Composition Test 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.
Within the The Body Composition Test 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.
If you do not meet the initial height/weight requirements, the Army uses a calculation based on your abdominal and neck measurements to determine your body fat percentage.
This Army PFT App is current with the latest version of FM 7-22 and offers full support for alternative cardio events. Log your PFT/BCA scores and keep a record and visualize your progress with graphs.
