Army Training and Doctrine Command found that implementing changes to how the Army assesses physical fitness would be premature. Daniel A. What was proposed? In , TRADOC implemented a physical fitness training philosophy that Soldiers are better prepared if they train how they would fight.

In separate reports, the panel of fitness experts from the Department of Physical Education at U. Military Academy, the U. The panel of subject matter experts agreed that the five-event Army Physical Readiness Test has "face validity" only, meaning that although it appears to measure what it claims to measure, further study would be required to confirm.
Soldier baseline physical readiness is the ability to meet the physical demands of combat and duty position, and accomplish the mission while conducting unified land operations. TRADOC has determined that baseline Soldier physical readiness would be most effectively measured if linked to warrior tasks and battle drills, known as WTBD -- tasks and drills determined over the last decade of war to be critical while conducting unified land operations.
Given the independent study, and the logic of linking fitness to WTBD, TRADOC will initiate a comprehensive study of Soldier fitness requirements to determine the best method to measure baseline Soldier physical readiness.
The objective of the study is to select and recommend test events that have a functional connection to WTBD, and accurately measure baseline fitness against valid performance standards.
The study is expected to begin in October and will include fitness experts from across the Army. Decisions to change long-standing and proven systems of physical fitness are not made lightly, or prematurely, said the TRADOC command sergeant major.
Targeting noncommissioned officers, this program, discontinued in , will eventually provide commanders at all levels certified fitness advisers. TC WTBD are the fundamental combat skills which all Soldiers, regardless of rank, age, gender or military occupational specialty, must perform in order to fight and win on the battlefield.

My husband joined the Army after we were married for 5 years. There was no sign that we were moving in that direction prior to this change. In fact, I did not know he even wanted to join. Let me start from the beginning….. Our lives were not moving in the direction we would have liked. We had very little money and the bills were coming in.
