For Soldiers, rocking the Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT) is a top priority. Whether you’re looking for tools to help you improve in one event or hoping to max your score, Guard Fit has you covered!

Guard Fit, a fitness app launched by Guard Your Health, is designed to help you reach your fitness goals. The app was developed based on feedback from Soldiers to help keep you fit and mission ready year-round. You can earn the APFT score you’ve always wanted with these four easy-to-use features: TRACK, TRAIN, COMPETE, and TOOLS.


Whether your goal is to max your next APFT or just pass with a 180, use the TRACK feature to set your APFT goals and track your progress. You can also do a practice APFT using built-in timers for push-ups, sit-ups, and the 2-mile run. Log your results to calculate your projected APFT score and identify areas you need to work on.


The TRAIN feature allows you to customize your training plan. Guard Fit generates a daily or weekly training plan just for you, taking the guesswork out of PT. You can easily edit your plan based on your schedule and training needs. Then pick your level of intensity and get to it! Guard Fit will even show you proper form and tell you how long to do each exercise with a built-in timer.


What’s more fun than a little friendly competition? Through the COMPETE feature, you can add friends, create groups, and challenge your battle buddies for the top leaderboard spot. This is a great way for your unit to stay on top of their PT training.


Find resources you need to meet your APFT goals with the TOOLS feature. From an APFT calculator to workout videos and healthy recipes, Guard Fit connects you to the health resources you need and want.
