These sessions are held at University of Hawaii recreation facilities. The Cadet Wing Fitness and Nutrition Flight Commander their staff are responsible for planning and executing the workouts.

The Air Force wants a culture of fitness and requires cadets to keep their bodies in shape. Twice a year cadets take a PFA (Physical Fitness Assessment). The PFA consists of 1 minute sit-ups, 1 minute push-ups and a 1.5 mile run. The test is administered in one session and there will be a short break between each activity. There are different standards for each gender and age group. Your score is composed of your performance in those three activities and your waist measurement .
To prepare you for the PFA and military duty you must attend 2 PT (Physical Training) sessions each week. One of those sessions must be Wing Mandatory PT. Other PT sessions are offered throughout the week.
