Physical Training (PT)

Physical training, or PT, is a necessary component of preparation for commissioning as an Army officer. Students join this program with varying levels of physical fitness. Many have already integrated fitness, rest, and proper nutrition into their busy lives. PT at the Wildcat Battalion is conducted outside (when weather permits) or at the Superior Dome, the world's largest wooden dome.

Physical Fitness Training sessions will run every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. PT will occur at 0630 in the Superior Dome or as otherwise scheduled and generally last for one hour. PT is run by cadets in their second and third year with the program.  Each cadet will be required to complete an initial record Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT) during the first week of classes.
