How the Army Physical Fitness Test Works: Each participant is tested
in the following categories: Number of push ups completed in two minutes, number of
sit ups completed in two minutes, and length of time taken to complete a two mile run.
The raw numbers are then assigned points based on age and gender. These
points are combined to arrive at an overall fitness score.
