Abstract
Aerobic fitness was assessed for 3171 men aged 17-55 years and for 610 women aged 17-29 years serving in almost every segment of the Canadian Forces (CF). Maximal oxygen uptake (V sub 02 max) was predicted from heart rate measured during submaximal exercise. The survey showed that recruit training markedly improved V sub 02 max for both men and women but that, after graduates were assigned to their trades and classifications and fitness training was no longer compulsory, fitness returned to pre-training levels.
