Why Marine Style Fitness?

If you are familiar with the Marine Corps, you know that the physical requirements are higher than any other branch of military. Marines must maintain a high physical fitness level and are required to meet specific fitness standards multiple times each year.

The Marine PFT (physical fitness test) is used to test the overall fitness level of the Marine and the CFT (combat fitness test) tests the combat readiness. These tests are performed twice per year so Marines must stay in top shape in order to perform well.

You can use our handy PFT calculator or our CFT calculator to find out your current fitness level.

Beyond the requirements that each Marine must meet to stay in shape for these fitness tests, Marines also train as a group multiple times per week. Some units train as often as every morning depending on their schedule and other factors.

The training that is done usually consists of basic calisthenics, running, pull ups and crunches. Simple exercises but amazing results.

Our philosophy is just like that of the Marine Corps. We keep it simple so that it’s easier to stay on track and achieve greater results.

If you are serious about getting into great shape, the fitness training and advice you’ll find throughout our site is designed to help you achieve full body fitness.

No matter where you are at now, there is likely room for improvement and it’s probably easier than you think.
