Physical Fitness (PT)

Physical Fitness is a cornerstone to any well trained, effective military in the world. Physical Training (PT), prepares our riflemen for the physical challenges of fulfilling their objective in a wide range of activities in numerous environments, be it work, home, school, or ultimately, in the military.  The first hour of our weekly meetings is devoted to PT. Our PT program has a mix of calisthenics, body weight exercises (pushups, sit-ups, etc), and cardiovascular training, normally a one to two mile run. Occasionally, we will conduct “Combat PT”, which is designed to simulate the rigorous conditions  a modern soldier will face while deployed. Last but not least, we build self confidence and self defense skills with our “Combatives” course. This course is our own mix of US Army self defense, Royce Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Krav Maga, and any other relevant martial art.  After a regimen of PT, riflemen are required to pass the final portion, a Physical Fitness test, based on the APFT (Army Physical Fitness Test).
