U.S. Army Warrior Fitness Team - Competitive Athlete Talent Call

The U.S. Army Warrior Fitness Team (WFT) is a highly successful, DA-sanctioned program run by the United States Army Recruiting Command (USAREC). The organization fields competitive fitness athletes to represent the U.S. Army both online and at various fitness events across the country. The mission is simple: connect America's Army to the American public through a passion for fitness.

We are looking to expand our talent pool of Active Duty, Army Reserve, and National Guard Soldiers in the sport of CrossFit, Strongman/women, and power/Olympic lifting. We compete at the highest level in these sports and are looking to maximize participation in order to maintain our competitive edge and help connect the American people to the Army through fitness.

Candidates who are identified as the most competitive will be requested to visit Fort Knox, KY for a fitness evaluation and interview process.

Soldiers selected to the team must be prepared for a PCS assignment to Fort Knox and understand that it will also involve recruiting engagements and interaction with the public on a daily basis. There is also an opportunity to be a part of the "at-large" team if you are not selected for the Fort Knox based resident team and/or cannot PCS to Fort Knox.

  • Active Duty, Army Reserve, or National Guard
  • E–1 to E–8, O–1 to O–3, and WO1 to CW3
