APFT Calculator

The Army Fitness Calculator brings the APFT, extended scale, alternate run event, and body fat calculators for all age groups and both genders into one easy to use program. A working and free online version is available to the left.

The APFT & Extended Scale Calculator takes the raw scores from the three APFT events and calculates each event score, total score, and extended scale score. The calculator shows the minimum and maximum repetition/time for each APFT event and displays if it was a GO or NO GO.

To pass the APFT, you must receive at least a 60 in each event. To qualify for the extended scale you must receive at least a 100 in each event.

Other events, such as the 2.5 mile walk, 6.2 mile bike, and 800 yard swim, are also included for alternate run event scoring. These events are considered GO / NO GO and not awarded any points. However, an averaged unofficial score is provided to assess and compare performance.
