Physical Fitness Excellence

Welcome to the APFT Mentoring site! This site is designed to help soldiers in the Army and Air National Guard and Reserves, enlisted and non-commissioned officers improve their performance on the Army Physical Fitness Test. As the name suggests, the main focus of this program is mentorship and accountability. The site provides the option for a flexible mentorship structure; from a basic one-to-one mentoring to squad, platoon or even company/battalion wide mentoring. It is up to each unit to set up their mentoring structure as they see fit according to unit needs and goals.

How It Works

Every user has his/her own training tracker and APFT tracker. At this time workout sessions can only be entered for the day of the workout; if a user does not log his/her workout by 12AM that day is closed and he/she cannot add it at a later time. The site also provides an invite tool used to add soldiers under your mentorship. For example, you make an account and log in, register your company and start inviting soldiers. The soldiers you invite are going to be under your mentorship and accountable, in the company you created. It can also be used by individual soldiers to track their own progress but they will miss the benefit of having a mentor.

Mentors can see the training habits(the personal workout log) and APFT log for all the soldiers they invite under their mentorship and all the soldiers they invite.
Sample scenario:
-1st sergeant creates an account and registers a company
-he/she invites every platoon sergeant in the company
-platoon sergeants invite squad leaders
-squad leaders invite team leaders
-team leaders invite all the soldiers in their squad or just the ones who fail the APFT
