Battlefield Airmen Physical Fitness Study Team

An Airman completes an obstacle course while wearing a 20-pound vest and a 50-pound rucksack, June 19, 2015, as researchers from the Air Force Fitness Testing and Standards Unit observe. The Airman is a volunteer in the fitness study, which supported the Air Force’s Women in Service Review. The Battlefield Airmen Physical Fitness Study Team developed a prototype PT test that is indicative of the physical capabilities needed for combat. All male and female subjects underwent 39 physical fitness tests and 15 physical task simulations to link fitness tests and standards to real world operational tasks and requirements.
