I see all these terms thrown about but can someone explain exactly what they consist of please. For example Arny’s plan has an APFA but I’ve seen no other mention of it. Thanks.

BFT - Basic Fitness Test: 1.5 mile run in 12:30, 1 minute rest, 1.5 mile return best effort.

RMFA - Royal Marines Fitness Assessment: Max Press ups in 2 minutes (to beep), Max Sit ups in 2 minutes (to beep), Max Pull ups (to beep) and Bleep Test.

APFA - This is the Army’s version of the RMFA. It is the RMFA that Arny would like you to conduct in his plan.
