How much work do I need to do to be in the airforce?

I'm wondering if you need to go through a fitness test or something like that to get approved.

To ensure your health, a physical exam is necessary. You need to be generally active and fit, but don't worry, the standards aren't too high. A thorough background and medical history check will also be conducted. Best of luck!

Danny, you will want to be in reasonable shape. You will have to pass a physical exam. You will be doing a good amount of physical training once at your basic training. To find out what your exact requirements would be to enlist speak directly with your nearest recruiter.

you need to pass a medical physical, and cannot be too much over or under weight, but thats about it. you don't have to worry about being particularly athletic or anything. you're gonna want to be in good shape before you get to basic though. when i was in we had to do PC and run 1.5 miles every few days, it wasn't bad but for me the running was hard at first because i was a smoker. if you cant keep up with the running they embarrass you and make you practice on a track until you can, they called us the smoker and video gamer club. that was back in my day though, idk if it's still the same.

the air force is a great choice because you can get a guaranteed specialty. the other branch's people go in open and sometimes don't know what job they will be doing for the next few years. make sure you get guaranteed specialty, and you'll be fine.
