He makes a lot of good points and that was a good read... But... The Army hiring civilians for each BDE or even less likely every BN is higly unlikely for PT. I agree the PRT program is a joke when you have 1 hour for unit PT 10 minutes for the prep drill then another 15-20 for MMD 1-2, that's almost half the time wasted right there doing a bunch of nothing in my opinion then you have to be doing the recovery drill by 0720 in order to hear whatever 1SG forgot to put out at the start of formation. So how much PT is really getting done? Not much.

Ive only met one MFT and he tried to take over the PT program only to be moved to BDE SHARP, got it, that's important too but where are the other MFT? I 100% agree making an MOS out of it because that is more realistic then hiring civlians that way it can go all the way down to the company level having a MFT to mold the PT program and get rid of some of the slobs and fat bodies hanging around making us look bad.

The Army PT program is only meant to sustain what one does on their own and allows leaders to hone their leadership skills in way of motivation and discipline. Now, that briefs well but the problem is quite evident. Why does the military have to teach nutrition? Are adults not responsible for their own diet and physical fitness? It's a mixture of "Hey, let's run five miles at a snails pace...four times a week!" and constant circular formations because NCOs can't or won't break their formation off like days of recent past. Getting out from behind the XBox and PlayStation would help too.

I agree with SGT Kyle Rodabaugh that the PRT program is a joke. I'm in the reserves and we do PT as a unit only once a month which I usually lead. I'll do PRT once in a while but I usually go old school and do a quick 5 minute warm up, 5-10 stretch and then get right into the workout.
