26 Army Fitness Tests from Different Countries in the World

Last updated on January 21st, 2018

Ever wonder how army fitness tests in other countries compare to your own? What are the fitness requirements for their soldiers?

Here’s a list of army fitness tests from 26 countries – from every continent in the world, including Africa, Asia and Europe.

Be sure to check out my overview, which reveals the most common requirements, comparisons, and also the strangest tests requirements.

Navigate with ease and skip sections with the table of contents below.

Army Fitness Tests – Overview, Observations & Comparisons

Army Fitness Tests Around the World

Soldiers are the modern version of historical ninja and samurai. They have to be fit for physically-demanding tasks and warfare. That is why every army has fitness requirements for both potential recruits and active-duty soldiers.

Where available, I’ve listed army fitness tests that are conducted for active-duty soldiers. Tests for potential recruits are generally lower in standards and would make the comparison unfair.

Also, I’ve prioritised fitness tests for the average soldier, instead of tests for special forces and specific units.

Army task-simulations vs Convention exercises

There seem to be two types of army fitness tests. One directly evaluates a soldier’s fitness by simulating common tasks performed in the line of active duty. The other indirectly assess a soldier through common endurance, aerobic and strength exercises.

Examples of task-simulation include loading a weighted ammo box or carrying Jerry cans over specific distances. Both the Canadian and UK army fitness tests are direct evaluations of a soldier’s physical capability. The US Army’s new test (OPAT) is a hybrid of the two.

An example of endurance, aerobic and strength exercises are push ups, pull ups, crunches and running.

Task simulation tests are less common, as they are a new development.

3 Common Exercises that Feature in Most Fitness Tests

Many army fitness tests include three standard components:

  • push ups
  • situps (or crunches)
  • run.

These exercises evaluate arm strength, core strength and endurance (or aerobic fitness).

The countries that use these three exercises as test components are USA, Singapore, Philippines, Australia, China, Ireland, Japan, Luxembourg, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, South Africa, South Korea, Taiwan and Sweden.

There are, of course, more components than these three exercises.

Beep Test and Shuttle Run

Another common component in several countries is the beep test or shuttle run. These are meant to test progressive endurance, reaction time and coordination.

Sense of Balance

Out of all the countries, India and Switzerland test soldiers for their sense of balance. The Swiss balance component is especially intriguing (refer to Switzerland, under the guidelines tab).

Ergometer Gym Bicycle

Finally, several European countries (especially Nordic ones) include Ergometer test as a test component. This test assesses a soldier’s oxygen uptake capacity.

How hard is the army fitness test?

Leopard crawl

It depends. Many army tests are comparable.

Some nations use a pass-or-fail standard that only requires you to perform a bare minimum number of exercise reps. These are generally easier to pass.

Other nations divide passes into different grades. Needless to say, getting an excellent grade is tougher.

Even though – for ego’s sake – it’s tempting to compare armies based on their fitness requirements, it paints a really flawed comparison.

For instance, the Italian Army’s recruitment standards are easy to meet. But there is no doubt that once a recruit becomes a soldier, his/her fitness level would rise exponentially.

Lastly, several nations use citizen militias. Because of mandatory service for everyone, passing standards are understandably lower.

Experience with Singapore’s army fitness test

Because I am part of the army reserve, I have to take a fitness test annually. I’ve been awarded Gold for my past two tests and found it easy to pass because I cross-train.

However, the old test system (with 6 test components) was tough even for me. My weakness was in standing broad jumps.

Note: I have yet to take 2016’s test due to my shoulder injury.

Here are the army fitness tests used of 26 nations in the world. Let me know how you think you’d fare?

26 Countries’ Army Fitness Tests & Requirements

1
Australia - Basic Fitness Assessment

The Australian Defence Force (ADF) uses various fitness assessments to measure its soldiers’ physical fitness. The most relevant one is the Basic Fitness Assessment (BFA). Active personnel take this test every 6 months.

The BFA’s scoring system is simple – you either pass or fail. Passes are NOT divided into grade classes such as Gold, Silver, Bronze.


Basic Fitness Assessment (BFA)

  • Push ups
  • Situps
  • 2.4km run (1.5 mile run)
  • 5km walk (3.1 mile; only for soldiers older than 40; to be used in lieu of 2.4km run)


Guidelines – Australian army physical fitness test

The ADF situps are different from regular situps. Their situp method prevents you from using your hip flexors or head as leverage. This eliminates cheating by using any other muscles than your core.

Take a look at the video instructions.


The pass-or-fail standards differ among age groups and gender. Refer to the table for men and women below.

Others – PFA

Here is the Pre-enlistment Fitness Assessment (PFA), different than the BFA. This test is for potential recruits.

For more fitness-related tests of the ADF, refer to this document.

Belgium

The Belgian Army uses a three-component fitness test for potential recruits. I have no further information on annual fitness tests for active-duty soldiers.


What does the army fitness test involve?

  • Situps (maximum in 1 minute)
  • Push-ups (maximum in 1 minute)
  • Treadmill walking test

Guidelines

All the test components are self-explanatory (except the treadmill test).

For the treadmill walking test, start with a 1-minute warm-up walk at 3 to 6 km per hour.

The test begins at 6 km per hour. Speed is increased by 0.3 km per hour every 30 seconds until it reaches 14.4 km/hour. The test lasts no more than 18 minutes and 30 seconds, with the last 3 minutes used for recovery/cool down.


Score

The push-ups and sit-ups component each account for 10% of the score (20% when combined). The treadmill walking test accounts for 80% of the points.

Canada - FORCE Evaluation

The Fitness for Operational Requirements of CF Employment (FORCE) assesses the Canadian Forces’ operational fitness. It partly simulates common army duties, and replaces the CF EXPRES Test.


Fitness for Operational Requirements of CF Employment (FORCE)

  • Sandbag Lift
  • Intermittent Loaded Shuttles
  • Sandbag Drag
  • 20 metre Rushes

Guidelines

ComponentDescription
Sandbag LiftLift 20kg sandbag to the height of one metre for 30 consecutive times within 3 minutes 30 seconds.
Intermittent Loaded ShuttlesShuttle back and forth 10 times for a distance of 20m per shuttle. Alternate between carrying a 20kg sandbag and not carrying anything each shuttle. This needs to be completed within 5 minutes 21 seconds.
Sandbag DragWhile carrying a 20kg sandbag, drag at least four sandbags over 20m without stopping within 51 seconds.
20 metre RushesComplete 2 shuttle sprints – 20m back and forth, starting from a prone position. Drop into a prone position every 10m.

More details here.

China - 中国人民解放军军人体能标准

The People’s Republic of China assesses its soldiers’ fitness with the People’s Liberation Army’s Soldier Physical Fitness Standards (中国人民解放军军人体能标准). This test applies to conventional soldiers, and not personnel from special units.

According to secondary sources, China updated the standards at the end of 2006. So, the information here may be outdated.


军人体能标 (Soldier’s Physical Standards)

  • Push-ups
  • Sit-ups
  • 10m x 5 back and forth sprints
  • 3km run (1.86mile)

There is actually a test component that require soldiers to be a certain height. However, I’ve left that out because it is not a test of fitness.

Finland - Fitness Test

The Finnish Defence Forces (FDF) holds a compulsory annual fitness test for all its professional soldiers. The scores are graded based on the soldier’s level of fitness.


Core Test

  • 12-minute Run (Bicycle Ergometer Test or The UKK Walk Test for over 45 years old)
  • Sit ups (maximum in 1 minute)
  • Push ups (maximum in 1 minute)
  • Standing Long Jump
  • BMI/Waist circumference

Even though the BMI/Waist circumference is not an exercise, it is a measure of body fat (related to fitness). That’s why I’ve included it.

All exercises are self-explanatory except the following:

ComponentDescription
12 Minute RunMeasures maximum distance covered in a 12 minute time frame.
Bicycle Ergometer Test & UKK WalkTwo separate tests for maximal oxygen uptake (better explanation on page 39 and 41.


Refer to Appendix 1 on page 73 of Physical Fitness Tests in the Nordic Armed Forces (01/2011). The scoring matrix is far too long to include in this section.


7
Germany - Basis Fitness Test

The German Army (Deutsches Heer) holds the Basis (Basic) Fitness Test to assess the physical fitness of its soldiers. This test uses a scoring matrix to distinguish quality of passes.


Basis Fitness Test

  • 11 × 10-m sprint test
  • Pull up hang
  • 1km (0.62mile) run or 3km (1.86mile) on gym bike

Guidelines

The running and bicycling is self-explanatory.

ComponentDescription
11 × 10-m sprint testFirst of all, start from a prone position at the starting line and run 10 metres to the end. Run back and return to prone position with the hands at the back. Repeat this 11 times.
Pull up hangPull up so that your chin is above the bar and hold it there for the maximum duration you can.

For illustrations refer to page 17 of Ausbildung und Erhalt der individuellen Grundfertigkeiten und der Körperlichen Leistungsfähigkeit.


Score

The following table merely displays the passing standards. Find out your actual score using the scoring matrix only if you meet the passing standards below.

ComponentPassing Requirement
11 × 10-m sprint testcomplete in 60 seconds
Pull up hang (chin above bar)at least 5 seconds
1km run or 3km on gym bikemaximum 6 minutes 30 seconds (for either)

For the full score matrix refer to Ausbildung und Erhalt der individuellen Grundfertigkeiten und der Körperlichen Leistungsfähigkeit (refer to page 27 to 29, section 5.4.9 Basispunktetabelle zum BFT).

Assuming you can’t read in German, here are some key terms:

  • 11 × 10 m-Sprinttest refers to the 11 × 10 m Sprint test.
  • Klimmhang refers to the pull up hang
  • 1000-m-Lauf refers to the 1km run
  • Zeit (Sek.) means Time (Sec.); Punkte means Points.

India - Physical Fitness Test (PFT)

The Indian Army’s Physical Fitness Test (PFT) assess potential recruits’ fitness standards. However, I can’t find further information for active personnel.

The PFT distinguishes recruits’s fitness standards into two groups – Group 1 being better than Group 2.


Physical Fitness Test (PFT)

  • 1.6km run (1 mile)
  • Pull ups
  • Balance (walking on balancing beam)
  • 9-feet ditch (jumping across the ditch)

The video above shows how the test is conducted.


The scoring system distinguishes passing marks into group 1 and 2. The first group is superior in fitness to the second.

TestSoldiers (others)Soldiers (general duty)
1.6 km run

  • Group 1: 05:40 and below – 60 marks
  • Group 2: 05:41 to 6:20 – 48 marks

New Zealand - Ongoing Fitness Requirement

The New Zealand Army (NZ Army) has several fitness testing requirements. The one most relevant to this list is the Ongoing Fitness Requirement (OFR), since its a semi-annual army fitness test.


Ongoing Fitness Requirement

  • 2.4km run (1.5 mile)
  • Curl-ups
  • Press-ups (aka. push-ups)


Guidelines

Army Curl Up

The curl up is similar to a crunch or half sit up. Take a look at the video for instructions.


Score

The score tables below only include test standards for soldiers aged 25 years-old and below. While the NZ Army fitness test makes allowances for soldiers older than that, this information is not available.

Passing scores are distinguished into: the 100 Club, Grade 1 and Grade 2 (in the order descending fitness standard).

Philipines - Army Physical Fitness Test

The Army Physical Fitness Test components and standards for the Philippines Army may not be accurate. I have inferred it based on the year 2008 standards and other updated news sources.

The old test is included in the Others – Old Test tab below.


Army Physical Fitness Test

  • Push-ups (max in 2 mins)
  • Sit-ups (max in 2 mins)
  • 2km run* (1.24mile)

According to PhilStar, the 3.2km run has been replaced with a 2km run component.


Score

The full scoring system is assumed to be same the as the old test (refer to the Others – Old Test tab), except for the run. The 2km run test requirement was retrieved from PhilStar’s report.

2km Test Requirement
  • Male (under 21 years old): 12.30
  • Female (under 21 years old): 14.00

The time requirement is adjusted for older soldiers.

  • Male (aged 52 to 56): 21.10
  • Female (aged 52 to 56): 22.50

Others – Old Test

The standards for the old test are for soldier recruits (aged 17 to 22 years-old).

MaleFemale
Push ups (max in 2 mins)3525
Sit ups (max in 2 mins)3025
3.2km run (2 miles)19.0021.00

This is based on the Philippines Military Academy requirements for recruits (dated 2010) and Bald Runner’s blog recounting his APFT Challenge in 2008. Standards for those above 22 years of age are unknown.

Poland

The Polish Land Forces (Wojska Lądowe) uses the following test to evaluate the fitness standard of its soldiers.


What does the army fitness test involve?

  • 3km (1.86mile – male)/1km (0.62mile – female)
  • Pull ups (male)/Inclined pull ups (female)
  • Sit ups
  • 10 x 10m shuttle run (male)/zig-zag run (female)


Guidelines

All components are self-explanatory except the 10 x 10 shuttle run and zig-zag run.

10 x 10m shuttle run

Begin at the beep. Run towards the flag at the end (10m away) and circle back to the starting line. Repeat this five times.

Zig-zag Run

Complicated to prepare and replicate.


Score

Since there are separate scores for different groups, I have added the lowest standard for soldiers below. Special unit grades were omitted and can be found here (original language: Polish).

The score is calculated by getting the arithmetic mean (average) of the individual component’s grade.

  1. 4.51 or more – very good
  2. 3.51 to 4.50 – good
  3. 2.51 to 3.50 – good
  4. 2.50 and lower – fail

Singapore - Individual Physical Proficiency Test (IPPT)

All active and reservist soldiers of the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) are required to take an annual fitness test known as the IPPT (Individual Physical Proficiency Test). The Singapore Police Force and Singapore Civil Defence also use the same test.

Your total score of all components would determine the class of award you qualify for: Gold, Silver or pass. If you fail, you have to attend remedial training.

Individual Physical Proficiency Test (IPPT)

  • Push-ups (Maximum repetitions in 60 secs)
  • Sit-ups (Maximum repetitions in 60 secs)
  • 2.4km run (1.5 mile)


Guidelines

All test components are self-explanatory. Female soldiers are allowed to do modified push-ups.

Score

The scoring matrix accounts for gender and 14 different age groups. It is too long to include here.

Use this IPPT calculator to get your score instead. Or, if you are crazy, find the different scoring details here.

  • Field test 2km (running in fighting equipment)
  • Multitest Strength
    • Push ups
    • Sit ups
    • Vertical Jump
    • Back Suspension
    • Arm Suspension

Switzerland - Test de Fitness de l’Armée pour le recrutement (TFA)

 

The Test de Fitness de l’Armée pour le recrutement TFA evaluates the physical fitness standard of conscript soldiers in the Swiss Land Forces. It tests explosive strength, core strength, coordination ability and endurance.


Test de Fitness de l’Armée pour le recrutement

  • Seated ball throw
  • Standing long jump (aka. standing broad jump)
  • Test of core strength
  • Balancing on one leg
  • Progressive Endurance Test


Guidelines

ComponentDescription
Seated medicine ball throwThrow a 2kg medicine ball while seated on a bench against the wall. The distance between the ground impact of the ball and the wall is then measured. This determines the explosive force of the arms.
Standing long jumpJump forward from the starting mark on the floor. The distance between the rearmost part of your body contacting the floor and starting point will be measured. For instance, if you jump forward and land on your butt, the distance between your butt and the starting point will be taken.
Test of core strengthGet into the plank position, forearms supporting your weight. Alternate between lifting your right and left leg up and down (use the rhythm of one second per motion). The duration you can keep doing this without your hips lowering or raising is measured. 
Balancing on one legFirst of all, balance on one leg. Ten seconds later, close your eyes. Another ten seconds later, with your eyes still shut, “look up”. Your chin must be lifted all the way. The time taken to lose your balance is measured. 
Progressive Endurance TestThis is an endurance test similar to the beep test.

Score

The maximum number of points for each component is 25 points, with the total being 125 points. Soldiers are eligible for awards with a total score of 80 onward. Male and female soldiers use the same assessment for joining the military. However, female soldiers are assessed with the adjusted score table for military awards.

United Kingdom - Annual Fitness Test (AFT)

The United Kingdom consists of four countries – England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland – all of which are protected by the British Army. So, what is the British Army fitness test?

Similar to Australia, the Annual Fitness Test (AFT) of the British Army uses a pass-or-fail standard, with no distinction in scores. However, the fitness test components seem to be specific to common military duties, including loading Jerry cans and ammo kits into vehicles.


Annual Fitness Test (AFT)

  • Static Lift – simulates lifting the ammo kit
  • Jerry Can Carry – simulates carrying two 20 kg jerry cans over short distances
  • 2.4km run (1.5 miles)

Guidelines & Score

The passing standards for all components differ among the various arms of the army. For example, the Parachute Regiment’s static lift weight is 40kg, jerry can carry distance is 120m and passing time requirement for the 2.4km run is 9 minutes and 40 seconds..

Pass/Fail standard

TestPass/Fail
Static LiftLifting power bags of 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 and 40kg, in sequence, to the height of 1.45m.
Jerry can carryCarry two 20kg jerry cans for a distance of 150 metres within 2mins.
2.4km run (1.5 miles)Timing requirement ranges between 09.40 to 14.30, depending on your arm/service.

United States - Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT)

What is the US army fitness test? The US Army uses the APFT (Army Physical Fitness Test) as a general standard to ascertain a soldier’s fitness level. While other service arms (e.g. Marines) use different tests, it is out of scope in this list.


Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT)

  • Push ups (maximum in 2 minutes)
  • Sit ups (maximum in 2 minutes)
  • 2-mile run (3.2km)

Score

Each component will be scored individually out of a hundred. To pass the test, soldiers need to score at least 50 points per component. Failure in any component means failing the entire test. Also, scores awarded depend on the soldier’s age group and gender.

The full score for this test is 300, which is the total of the three components’ full score.

Use the APFT calculator to get your score.


Others – Future & 1960s Test

Future Fitness Test – OPAT (supposed implementation in mid 2016)

The US Army has announced a new four-part fitness test known as the Occupational Physical Assessment Test (OPAT). It consists of the deadlift, long jump, beep test and medicine ball throw. The tests determines if the soldier has the muscular strength, endurance, and explosive power to meet his or her occupational requirements.

Old Fitness Test – APFT in 1960s

If you are interested, this was how the AFPT was like in the 1960s.


Limitations of Research and Information

Compiling this list of army fitness tests was challenging for a few reasons.

Information not readily available to public

First of all, some countries do not share military information with the public. Even if they did, the information would be in languages that are foreign to me. This explains why I limited the number of countries to 26 and had to rely on secondary research to infer data of some army fitness tests.

Complicated Army Fitness Test Schemes

Second, armies around the world use varying standards and methods to test their soldiers’ fitness levels. Some use different tests for different service arms. To keep it simple, I listed only the fitness standards applicable to the general soldier population. Specific army physical tests for special units were omitted.

Annual vs Recruitment test

Third, many armies have different standards for pre-entry recruits and existing soldiers. For obvious reasons, this list prioritises the annual army fitness tests (for active soldiers) over the lower recruitment standards (for potential recruits). Recruitment tests were included only where a country’s annual fitness test was not found.

Information updates delayed

Fourth, updates on army fitness tests are not communicated in a timely manner. Some tests in this list may be outdated. Where this is true, I have included a note to convey that.

Exclusion of combat fighting, warfare conditioning and obstacle courses

Fifth, a few countries’ fitness assessments include obstacle courses and combat fighting. I omitted them as they were more of a technical functional test than fitness evaluation. I also wanted a fair comparison to the many countries that separate their fitness tests and obstacle course assessments.

If you have sources to the army fitness tests of other countries, or would like to correct any mistakes made in the list, please contact me via this form or by leave a comment.
