tabAir Force Fitness Program 
The Air Force Fitness Program's goal is to motivate Airmen to participate in a year-round physical conditioning program that emphasizes total fitness, to include proper aerobic conditioning, strength and flexibility training, and healthy eating. Health benefits from an active lifestyle will increase productivity, optimize health, and decrease absenteeism while maintaining a higher level of readiness. The assessment components are comprised of: 
  1. Body composition evaluated by abdominal circumference measurements
  2. Aerobic component evaluated by the 1.5-mile timed run
  3. Muscular fitness component evaluated by the number of pushups and sit-ups completed within one minute
Some of the revisions include:
  • Fitness tests will be held twice per year
  • Minimum requirements must be passed for each component, including achieving a passing score of 75 or greater
  • Tests conducted at central locations called Fitness Assessment Cells
Members will receive age and gender-specific composite scores based on the following maximum component scores: 60 points for aerobic, 20 points for body composition, 10 points for pushups and 10 points for sit-ups.

Those with duty limiting conditions prohibiting them from performing one or more components of the fitness assessment will have a composite score calculated on the assessed components; however, they will only receive an overall "Pass" or "Fail" rating. Members must achieve a minimum of 75 adjusted points, based on points available, and meet minimum component standards.
tabHealth and Wellness Center 
Health and Wellness Center is a program designed to ensure Air Force physical fitness standards are clear and concise and annual evaluation requirements are completed. The HAWC is available to active-duty personnel, Department of Defense civilians, family members, retirees, Guard and Reserves. Their program entails fitness and healthy lifestyle.
