AMERICA’S ARMY: Army Combat Fitness Test

Globally Responsive, Regionally Engaged Road to the Army Combat Fitness Test

Baseline Soldier Physical Readiness Requirements Study (BSPRRS)


Phase I-II (2012-2013) Phase IV (2014-2015)

Purpose: Determine the physically demanding, Purpose: Determine which industry-validated, field-expedient
fitness test events were the best predictors of WTBD/CST
commonly occurring and critical Warrior Tasks and
performance on the CTST.
Battle Drills (WTBD) and Common Soldier Tasks (CST).
Eight physical fitness test events within 6 primary and 4
secondary components of fitness were found to be 73%
(moderate/high) predictive of WTBD/CST performance
Phase III (2013-2014)
Purpose: Identify physical characteristics associated
with each of the 11 identified physically demanding,
commonly occurring, critical tasks to develop a
Common Task Simulation Test (CTST).

AMERICA’S ARMY: Army Combat Fitness Test
Globally Responsive, Regionally Engaged Mission & Concept of Operation

Mission: Implement the ACFT to replace the APFT as the physical fitness test of
record for the Army NLT 1st quarter, FY20, to improve individual Soldier combat
readiness and transform the culture of Army fitness.

Concept of the Operation: Gather feedback from the field, assess and change
Army policy, procure and field ACFT equipment, and train the force to ensure the
ACFT is successfully implemented throughout the Army.

• IOC – ACFT for select Field Test units (o/a 01 OCT 18)
 Familiarize all compos and major Army commands with the ACFT
 Gather Soldier/Leader feedback on ACFT administration, events, and scoring
standards
 Validate test administration instructions, minimum time standard, and current
scoring plan
 Collect and analyze ACFT performance data to refine ACFT scoring standards
(Black, Grey, Gold)
 Study and analyze potential alternate events

• FOC Phase I – ACFT Total Army Initial Implementation (o/a 01 OCT 19)

• FOC Phase II – ACFT Total Army Full Implementation (NLT 01 OCT 20)
