Coast Guard Fitness Standards

 

Today, with the threat of terrorist attacks on American soil, the Coast Guard stands as our first line of defense against any maritime threat.  The Coast Guard performs thousands of life saving missions every year and seizes tons of illegal drugs and contraband, the men and women of the Coast Guard are our Homeland Defense force. 

To perform these dangerous missions requires a high level of fitness from the average Coast Guard member.  Physical fitness requirements in the Coast Guard are directly linked to “On the Job” requirements. Coast Guard men and women who are rescue swimmers, small boat crew members, etc., must comply with the specific physical standards set forth by their position, but here are the standards for the PFT plus the 12 minute swim.

SPECIFIC PFT REQUIREMENTS ARE:

This article should help many with finding the standards you should reach prior to joining the Coast Guard.  It is always recommended to never strive for the minimum physical standards when seeking a profession that requires a fit body to perhaps save your life or the lives of your comrades. If you are seeking to get back into shape and want to be as fit as one of the above military members, check with your doctor before starting any fitness program.
