Abstract:

Physical fitness, Airborne training success and a number of other trainee variables were related for nearly 4,000 Airborne trainees. Success in training was found to be strongly associated with trainee physical fitness as measured by Army Physical Fitness Test events and performance on a modified Harvard Step Test. Large group differences found in Airborne training success between males and females and among officers, cadets and enlisted trainees were paralleled by large differences in physical fitness between and among these groups.
