Training Needed by Army National Guard
New fitness test means opportunities for fitness pros.
As previously covered in this column, the Army is requiring a new, more rigorous fitness test, starting October 1, 2019. All soldiers will be required to pass the test to qualify for their military jobs, effective October 1, 2020.
To meet this challenge, the Army National Guard is looking for nearly 5,000 fitness instructors and buying approximately $40 million in workout equipment in the next 7 months.
