The Navy Physical Fitness Test consists of push-ups, curl-ups (sit-ups), and either running or swimming. In basic training, swimming is not an option. All boot camp recruits are measured by performing push-ups, curl-ups (sit-ups) and running 1 1/2 miles.

PRT SCORING. The Navy PFT score is determined by averaging the scores of the three fitness events.

For example, let's say a 25 year old female does 91 curl-ups (sit ups), 26 push-ups, and completes the 1.5 mile run in 15:23. Looking at the female age 25-29 chart, we see that is worth 85 points for the curl-ups, 65 points for the push ups, and 55 points for the running event.

To find the average, we add the scores together, then divide by 3. 85 + 65 + 55 = 205. 205/3 = 68. This sailor would receive a PRT score of 68, which we can see on the below chart is categorized as "Good (Medium)."

To graduate boot camp, a sailor needs an overall category of "Good (Low)," which means their average in three events must be 60 points or greater.

After boot camp, to pass the periodic Navy fitness test, a sailor needs to be in the Satisfactory (Medium) category, or above, which means they must have an average score of at least 50.
