A soldier is considered to be the most important “weapons system” in an army, based on the fact that no equipment can replace a well-trained soldier. A high all-around fitness level lowers physical stress in critical-/ extreme situations, e.g. when working in hot climates at high intensities or when carrying heavy equipment. A high level of fitness and a well-trained body also increase the body’s ability to handle intense work loads and lower the risk of injuries. The aim of the Danish Armed Force’s Military Physical Training is to improve the overall physical fitness level of their soldiers in order to help them feel less strain during their operational tasks.
