    my squadron is a bunch of computer programmers and web-developers - they're not exactly the pinnacle of fitness or the definition of lean mean fighting machine. The job hazards include carple tunnel and eye strain.:mamoru:

    I'm rewriting policy for my flight PT. My boss wants an incentive/award type program. He rightfully feels its pathetic that he, as a relatively average runner beats 75% of the flight. Myself, along with two other LT's have been tasked with revamping PT, and we have from the ground up.

    In addition, we're trying to develop a quarterly incentive/awards program.

    Fastest Runner
    Most Pushups in a certain time
    Most Situps in a certain time
    Most improved
    Best Element (there are 4 elements in the squadron)


    sound good, what to improve/add/remove regarding the incentive/award program?

    for incentives give the highest score a good parking spot or free half day off.
    I wouldn't put too high of award for most improved because some will tank the test then take it again at normal rate and kill everyone with the score improvement.

    I've always seen that awards should be something the solider/airman would want . A title of highest pushups doesn't do jack for them.

    Three day pass if score is 100%, 1 day if above 90%.
    or you could not kick them out of the AF. That is a pretty good incentive.

    To this add that people who score a 100% can PT on their own on Mon and Fri, and people who score 90% - 99% can PT on their own on Fri, but must stil attend morning PT formation.

    They shoulnd't need insentive to exercise. Just up the work out days and tell them once they start making time that you will "take away" the days they got to show up for PT. For example Monday - morn, tues afternoon, wens morn, friday afternoon. Maybe throw a saturday in there. Not only will you get in good shape but they will also.

    You can't add a Saturday for PT. Regulation stats the Commander will allow personnel adequate time to PT three days a week. Adding a Saturday wouldn't fit the needs or requirements.

    Sounds like a good idea to me though.

    I think you should give them a cookie and tell them job well done.

    Give them positive incentives and negative incentives.
    Give the guys who perform at the top a day off or two.
    If someone is on the fatboy program, and is seriously making progress, encourage them through counseling. And not through the Health and Wellness Center, or whoever administers your fatboy program.

    If they do not respond to positive incentive, then start kicking people out who don't make the cut. Nothing straightens military people up like the threat of unemployment and loss of benefits. They either wise up or get out.

    FUCKING WORD!!!!!!

    One of my biggest gripes when I was in was "sqaudron PT"

    Considering that I kept myself in 10x times better shape than some pimplefaced A1C leading it, fuck that.

    And once again, after I got hurt I used that time to REHAB and then someone complained so I had to sit around and waste my fucking time and watch people run while I could of been using it to help fix my damn ankle.

    This is why I started coming into PT in jeans...lemme see if I can find my LOR for that.
