Do You Meet The US Minimum Fitness Standard?

Right now, as you read this, do you think you could pass the United States Marine recruit acceptance minimum standards? The USMC has an Initial Strength Test (IST) for all potential candidates looking to join. The IST is a shortened version of the USMC Physical Fitness Test.

The following fitness events are the minimum and must be passed prior to shipping out to boot camp:


2 Pull-ups

44 Sit ups in 2 minutes

1.5 Mile run in 13:30


Flexed arm hang for 12 seconds

44 Sit ups in 2 minutes

1 Mile run in 10:30

So where do you stand? Could you complete the minimums for each event? If not, now may be the perfect time to fix that. Currently, Elite Endurance will be running a special Summer Break Back to Shape Camp starting in June. The camp will run for 3 months until September. You decide if you want to participate in 1, 2, or 3 months. For more information, check out Elite Endurance at:
