PFT and CFT Scores Not Only For Promotion

PFT and CFT scores are an indicator of a Marines physical fitness. These scores can show where a Marine needs improvement such as in upper body strength (low pull ups or ammo can presses) or aerobic endurance (slow 3 mile run).

After collecting these scores unit leaders can design physical training programs to improve these deficiencies. During the physical training program Marines should run a PFT and CFT.

The unit leader can compare the before and after scores to see how his Marines are improving. The idea is to constantly be getting stronger and improving physical fitness.
