Marine Corps Fitness

Fitness is a way of life for the Marines. Over the last 15 years, Marine Corps Fitness has evolved from the standard physical fitness test (PFT) of a 3 mile run, max pull ups, and max crunches in two minutes. 

There is now a Combat Fitness Test, fitness trainers attached to each unit, and a focus on functional strength, cardiovascular endurance, and mental toughness.
