Contractors are taking USAF PT scores nowhere, but doing it really fast
THE PENTAGON, Arlington, Va. — Top Air Force officials held a press conference today in the Pentagon Athletic Center to unveil a new 'ContractorFit' program for officer fitness tests.
"Airmen are some of the most overworked individuals in the U.S. military,” Secretary of the Air Force Frank Kendall III told reporters who were blocking the running track. “This contract returns valuable time to their busy schedules.”
Acting Chief of Staff General David W. Allvin revealed 'ContractorFit' was awarded to CrossFit LLC. “Their CEO is a Marine veteran,” he said. “I can’t think of a better contractor to take on the rigors of an Air Force workout.”
The idea was the brainstorm of a pregnant colonel assigned to the Air War College whose term paper, “Every Aviator at the gym is one less Aviator on the flight line,” quickly reached Kendall’s desk. “The benefits seem obvious in hindsight,” said the West Point alumni, “because officers will no longer have to deal with tedious exercise rituals graded by junior NCOs."
