Estimate Your Score on Today's Military Fitness Test

The Army Physical Fitness School, which helps design the most updated military fitness test, is building the scoring scales to determine average and exceptional scores for physical fitness levels of today's military service members.

Before the new scores go into effect, military service members need to know where they stand, and what they may need to improve.
Use the estimations below as guidelines for passing the new challenging fitness test.

The final test scoring scale is expected to be presented to Army Leadership and implemented by Oct. 1, 2012. In the meantime, use these estimated scores to determine what your average passing score should be.
ADDING UP THE NUMBERS FOR MILITARY FITNESS

Below is an exclusive look at the average scores for men and women in each of the five categories on fitness.

Keep in mind that these numbers are merely passing scores, those shooting for exceptional numbers or numbers for promotion points should aim for higher.
The averages are:

Push-ups in one minute: Men, 36; Women, 19.

Shuttle run: Men, 16 seconds; Women, 18 seconds.

Rower in one minute: Men, 33; Women, 31

Long jump: Men, 79 inches; Women, 61 inches.

1.5-mile run: Men, 11:02; Women, 13:12.

Military service members can compare these averages with average scores from current fitness test to determine what numbers you have now, and how much improvement you need in order to pass.

PHYSICAL FITNESS: SUBJECT TO CHANGE

Even after the release of initial numbers, it is likely that passing average scores will climb higher once service members have become familiar with the new test.

The scoring scale might be adjusted to make it harder to achieve exceptional scores and the promotion points with which they are linked.
