Your U.S. Navy physical training will be both rigorous and challenging. The physical training program includes one hour daily workouts, six days a week. Training alternates between strength and conditioning exercises that focus on building your body’s major muscle groups and cardiovascular endurance. B.A.S.E.S (or Balance Agility Strength Explosion and Stamina) is a weekly exercise routine which incorporates shipboard required skills with aerobic and strength training.
To have the opportunity to run “battle stations” at the completion of training, receive your Navy ball cap, and graduate from RTC, you must pass a Navy Physical Fitness Assessment in your 6th week of training. Males will be expected to run 1.5 miles in under 12:15 perform 54 curl-ups and 46 push-ups in 2 minutes. Females will be expected to run 1.5 miles in under 14:45 perform 54 curl-ups and 20 push-ups in 2 minutes. You also must be within approved body composition measurements for your height and weight.
The demanding exercise program will continue rain or shine, in extreme heat or bone-chilling cold. Freedom Hall is your gateway to physical fitness in the U.S. Navy. It provides a clean, climate-controlled environment for strength and cardio training and physical fitness assessment testing for all recruits and staff members every day of the year, no matter what the conditions are like outside.
