Fitness Standards you didn't know you needed to "Earn" but now you should want to "Earn Everything" on this list, enjoy every small victory outlined here and really show us how you "Earn It". It doesn’t matter if you weigh 125 pounds or 250 pounds. If you can reach and maintain all of these fitness standards, you are a person who can lift heavy and go for long durations—and can ultimately handle anything physical life throws at you.

These tests can also give you a sense of what skills you’re “good” at, and which you need to improve. If, for example, you find you can hit all of the strength standards but fail most cardio-based standards, make sure that your program favors more cardio over weight lifting, and vice-versa.

Back squat: 2 times your body weight

Deadlift: 2.5 times your body weight

Front squat: 1.5 times your body weight

Overhead squat: 1.25 times your body weight

Bench press: your body weight for 10 reps

Power clean: 1.25 times your body weight

Turkish getup: half your body weight

60-second fan bike: 55 calories

500-meter Row: 1:30

500-meter SkiErg: 1:30 60-second fan bike: 55 calories

1,000-meter Row: 3:30

1,000-meter SkiErg: 3:30

2,000-meter row: 7:00

2,000-meter ski: 7:00

5,000-meter row: 18:30

5,000-meter ski: 18:30

1.5-mile Run: 8:45

60-minute row: 15,400 meters

60-minute ski: 15,400 meters

10K run: 50 minutes

'Earn It' by attaining all of these. A person who can hit any one of these on any given day is in our opinion a person who is truly fit. We might come out with a challenge around this, so if you start working now you can be the one who crushes it!

Improve your performance with a warm-up. A 10-20 minute “warm-up” is a great way to build a cardiovascular base, get some volume in, and practice technique. There’s a lot of value in the “warm-up” so don’t treat it as an afterthought. Put it at the forefront every day you go to the gym, start a hike, or go on a run, whatever it is that you do to "Earn It".


We would love to hear from you!
