Taking on Alexanders challenge is Helen, a 27-year-old woman who does CrossFit and even serves as a part-time coach. Shes joined by Elane, a 30-year-old woman who has also been a CrossFit athlete for years.
The pair begins with the situp round of the test, breezing through with relative ease. Helen completes an impressive 69 reps in the 2-minute test, but is bested by Elanes 77 successful situps.
Thats like more than me, Alexander said in response to Elanes performance.
Even with the turf burning their hands during the pushup round, the women still crushed expectations. Helen came out on top this timed test with 44 pushups in 2 minutes, while Elane was slightly behind with 39 pushups.
The final test, a 1.5 mile run, was the trial both women were dreadingbut it quickly became clear they had nothing to worry about. Elane completed the run in a time of 10 minutes and 40 seconds, with Helen just behind with a mark of 10 minutes and 56 seconds.
With scores like that, the two women successfully completed the U.S. Navy Physical Readiness Test. After calculating their averages, Elane reached the second highest score group possible for a woman her age, while Helens score got her in the third highest scoring group for a woman her age.
As for final thoughts on the Navy PRT, Helen had some words to sum up her experience. And it appears she wont be joining the Navy anytime soon.
