Physical Training (PT) is conducted Tuesday and Thursday. Cadets are expected to attend both sessions each week. PT activities vary between cardio, calisthenics, or sports.
These sessions are held at University of Hawaii recreation facilities. The Cadet Wing Physical Fitness Officer or their staff are responsible for planning and executing the workouts. Det 175 doesn’t mess around when it comes to working out! Our PT will prepare you for the Physical Fitness Assessment (PFA) all cadets must pass each semester and more importantly reach your own physical fitness goals. Many of our workouts are built around competitive team building.
The Department of 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.
Prospective cadets should familiarize themselves with the Air Force Physical Fitness standards before arrival. A copy of the standards used by Detachment 175 can be found here.
