U.S. Army Soldier physical readiness is acquired through the challenge of a precise, progressive, and integrated physical training program. This proponent sponsored mobile application explores Army doctrine FM 7-22, which prescribes the method for the execution of the Army Physical Readiness Training System. Features include; sample training schedules with drill and exercise demos, body composition calculators, an APRT calculator, a metronome, a run timer and insights into the doctrine.

Ratings and Reviews
Released too soon
There are too many problems to mention. A rating of 3.2 says enough. There isn’t a place to “individualize” your workout, no place to input exercise completed (or not), reps performed, or a metric to decide what is next. You should reach out to one of the dozens of commercial App platforms and work with them for a complete application that allows for individual input, tracking and an opportunity for Soldiers to meet with their MFT for specific guidance. This could be a great tool, but should be pulled, updated, then reposted.
Great start, but just a start.
(Full disclosure: I’ve been out of the Army for several years. I just like to stay fit and really like the ACFT. I wanted to see what the Army’s put out in app land.)
I’m one of those people that likes to have a plan and if I don’t, I get unmotivated. Bearing that in mind, why not put the sample PRT schedule (or something derivative) into a “workout tracker” type format? Or add a CFT score tracker so the Soldier can see how they’ve progressed over time?
You could even keep what you’ve got so far, and when they open the app, you could have options like “Today’s PT”, “Reference material”, and “ACFT Score tracker” and allow the soldier to easily go back and forth with a sidebar or something; say if they’re unsure about the execution of a movement during the session, they can switch over to the reference material right quick.
Just a thought. Solid start!
Attention to detail & audience
Pretty decent but..
First the pictures on the exercises are the old Army uniform. Who did the beta and proofing- you know our Soldiers are going to notice. Update throughout the app not just front.
Second -add a 10ish second video of the exercise in action. Added to the improve pictures mentioned above, this would provide another method to ensure “best” training standards in terms of exercise form.
Saw an idea on another comment that bears repeating - how about a squad weekly workout. Select the workout component and then have the ability to text to squad.
Maybe an added feature to record results but that make be getting beyond the skills level of our designers and the app intent.
