How Body Wraps Can Help You Pass Your PFT


Thousands of servicemen and women in San Diego dedicate their lives to serving our country. They do it willfully and humbly, and make countless sacrifices along the way. Not only is it mentally and emotionally taxing at times, but the military can be physically demanding as well.

Whether you’re an active member of the Coast Guard, Navy, Army, Air Force or Marines, there’s one thing that all these branches have in common—a Physical Fitness Test (PFT). Although the standards may vary slightly, all military personnel are required to complete a PFT at some point. According to, Army members are required to pass a Basic Training Physical Fitness Test before they can graduate and move on to infantry training. For the Marine Corps and Navy, PFTs are conducted twice a year.

These tests are designed to test the endurance, strength and flexibility of military personnel. Many of the tests include recommended scores or time requirements for 2-mile runs, push-ups, pull-ups, and swims. Height/weight/body fat measurements are also routine for many of the tests.

While the PFT can be a walk in the park for some, others struggle to barely pass. Depending on the branch of military, failing your PFT could mean mandatory conditioning for a set length of time, or even missing out on a promotion. For those who need helping passing the PFT, there’s Aztec Tan & Spa.
