Diagnostic APFT Failure

Developmental counseling statement sample covering Diagnostic APFT Failure

Counseling Sample For:

  • Diagnostic APFT Failure

Possible Key Points To Discuss During Counseling:

Your failure to meet minimum Army standards is an overall indication of your less than acceptable fitness level/standards. Since this was a diagnostic APFT, you will not be flagged or considered for a bar to reenlistment. This means you are fully eligible for favorable actions like awards and promotions. However, you must be dedicated and determined to improve your overall level of fitness. You will take a diagnostic APFT every 30 days to measure your progress.

Possible Plans of Action:

You will participate in the company’s special fitness program (conducted concurrently with unit physical fitness training). Your Squad Leader, along with the unit Master Fitness Trainer (MFT) will design a program tailored to address your specific fitness needs. The program regimen will help you improve your area(s) of weakness and overall fitness level. It is recommended that you routinely spend some of your personal (off duty) time to work on your physical conditioning. Achieving Army minimum standards is not difficult, the most important element to being successful is maintaining a positive “can-do” attitude and having the “heart and desire” to succeed. This is corrective, not punitive in nature and will assist both you and the command to ensure you are capable of passing the APFT.

Possible Leader Responsibilities:

  • Have soldier medically evaluated for potential factors contributing to physical limitations. Possible dietary considerations.
  • Structure fitness plan to meet soldier’s requirements (preferably a MFT).
  • Squad Leader must stay involved and interested in soldier’s improvement.
  • Ensure qualified NCOs conduct fitness training.
  • Ensure participation of required soldiers in the unit’s special fitness program.
  • Monitor progression of participants.
  • PSG/1SG periodically join in fitness sessions for encouragement/support and to verify training quality.
  • Upon passing of diagnostic APFT, release from special fitness program to participate in unit physical training.
