MAX THE ACFT
This 8-week ACFT training program has been specially designed to increase the military athlete's overall score on the Official (since 23 March 2022) Army Combat Fitness Test (ACFT).

This plan is solid. Although most commercial gyms don't have much of the equipment/space needed to complete the drag and med ball circuits, I made due with what I had and still improved my score from 505-545. Going to try and do another program because this program was crazy helpful.
Just finished Week 1. My unit does not have consistent PT schedules. This has been awesome.
Been a fan of Gritty Soldier Fitness for a while now. Going to IBOLC in September, and I found this program to be extremely helpful for getting my ACFT score up. Score went up by about 20 points after just six weeks of following the program. I wish I had purchased this program earlier in my career. I expect nothing but even greater programs/updates in the future.
I am 17 years old and am just barely joining the army. I'm only on month 3 and my score has already gone from 450 to 550! The Gritty Soldier for helping us little guys!
Great program to add on to your units pt program. (AM - Unit Pt / PM - ACFT Program). So far I have only done a few weeks of the program I have seen significant improvement (points wise) on the ACFT. I took a two ACFT’s 4 weeks apart, one prior to starting the program and one 4 weeks in. Initial test score was 504, second test score is 545. I will take a last test in four more weeks just to see the “final” results of the program. However, I just wanted to leave a review on the progress. You will get out of the program the work you give in. I’m hoping to reach 580’s at the end of this program. Overall, this program is well thought out.
