Marine Corps Fitness

The United States Marine Corps requires a high level of physical fitness to pass boot camp. In addition to the Physical Fitness Test (PFT) and Combat Fitness Test (CFT), you will be lacking sleep and more stressed than you have ever been. It’s important to train well beyond the minimum standard! If you can only do three pull ups at your recruiter’s office, you won’t be able to do three at boot camp. I went to boot camp doing 14 pull ups and could only bang out five during the IST. Train hard!
