Fall is Marine Corps Combat Fitness Test Season   Leave a comment


Fall is the season for the Marine Corps Combat Fitness Test. Sargeant Kuande Hall (USMC) explains “The CFT was mandated two years ago to increase Marines’ endurance on the battlefield, and the training continues to support those efforts. So while dragging a fellow comrade across a field and running with ammo cans around cones may sound exhausting, they are the tools we continue to utilize in combat situations. They are necessary when a Marine needs to be quickly evacuated from a hostile environment. They are needed when Marines have to low crawl to safety during a mission. And it is the reason that Marines now must pass an annual CFT in addition to the PFT.” The CFT is a great workout and assessment of anyone’s overall physical fitness. It is the program my NEWTs team will use to prepare for mud run and obstacle course events in 2011 – so get ready you guys! Read the full article HERE. You can also see CFT resources on the Training Resources page of this website!
