A complete listing can be found here. JTF2’s physical fitness evaluation. Do you have what it takes? Whenever I travel around, all the cardio machines are tuned to imperial. Most of the equipment is American, manial they don’t bother to configure it to metric.
I totally didn’t even see that the distance was posted in miles Guess my score is bare minimum now lol. I’m in Australia right now and the weights are in kg which is slightly annoying since I really like the idea of a 45lbs plate instead of 44lbs.
I use metric time more often than not. When I was in the infantry they would come do physical tests, just passing this meant very little. I think maybe 40 people did the test and passed, they took three.
Chances are you wouldn’t make it farther than selection. Any more info on how it was done?
Nous parlons français ici aussi!
So much secrecy behind the jtf2. Was it actual members that shows up? I’m asking since I believe it to be illegal to disclose their identity. From what we are told in the army, you do testing in your home unit, they accept you and give you a course commonly referred to as selection, you go to this course and sign a ton of NDAs.
You will either pass or fail the course, and even if you pass the instructors can ffitness the final say. After that your job training starts and then you either again pass or fail off that. I’ve heard tales of guys doing ONE thing wrong and they get booted off. I honestly don’t know if it was actual members or the physical trainers who are civilian staff.
They just came to our lines with no warning set up and anyone who wanted to do the test just went and did it sorta thing. Guys come out every year for recruiting drives and bring toys and teach us shooting techniques.
Being a part of an infantry battalion, you’ll eventually know a handful of guys that go to both CSOR and the Hill. I mean, I’m in better shape than average, but I certainly wouldn’t consider myself an athlete or anything, and I make the minimum fairly easily. You are in far better shape than average if you can meet those standards. I started exercising 2 years ago, and don’t even use a particularly grueling routine or anything, I spend a total of 4.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m very proud of myself for what I have accomplished, but there are plenty of people who are simply naturally better at athletics, and I guess I always kind of associated elite special forces with the same type of people who can be professional athletes, those who mznual naturally just better, no matter how much training you do. Pretty much everyone is capable of a certain level of athleticism which far exceeds the average person.
It’s just that most people are too lazy. I mean over half the population is overweight when losing weight is beyond simple. But I have a feeling there’s jtf other skills I fitnes have, like shooting people and jumping out of planes and stuff. This is the standard to get a tryout.
You would still have to get through selection which is weeks long. Only after that so you get the training like”shooting people”. Here’s the worst part of their training: You will swallow water and nearly drown a few times. You’ll puke and shit yourself in the pool. That’s far worse than jumping out of airplanes. Yeah but with them you get a pool! Talk about your easy cleanup, this is a cakewalk compared to the usual Friday!
I’ve met a friend of a friend who is an active JTF2. Biggest, scariest and super intense guy all while being very friendly at a BBQ. I don’t think our elite soldiers get as much love as our American friends seals, rangers etc but that’s how we tend to operate as Canadians. I don’t think it’s Canadians fault the JTF2 is shrouded in secrecy, people hardly even know about it. I like it that way.
Very few people even talk about JTF2. Sure, we know about them if we pay attention, but beyond that? You gotta be a somebody to know. Haha yeah the wikipedia article on them is the shortest ever It’s because they haven’t plastered their brand everywhere.
There was a time the SAS were pretty low key too. Navy Seals weren’t well known after Vietnam even though they were kicking as. The Green Berets were all the craze because of some articles and movies. Pretty sure they are super secret and he shouldn’t be saying he is in JTF2 if he is and so he probably isn’t or you are making it up. After this test, those that get picked up go on selection. It’s 7 days for NCM’s, and 10 for officers.
Of the few that finish, fewer get picked up. Then there’s the 9 month SOAC that you have to pass afterwards. I’ve heard accounts of the arctic training portions.

Fucking hell, these aren’t men; they’re demi gods. I know how that portion begins and I mean they could possibly lose guys on the first day. It’s the one where they parachute into the Arctic and then have to trek km to an extraction point in like a week or something isn’t it?
When I was still in the army, JTF2 and CSOR guys would come do a recruitment sort of info session once a year and it was always pretty cool even though they couldn’t say too many details. Fitnesx crazy because you know these guys are usually in great shape but it’s all about the manhal set. It definitely takes a special breed.
Yeah the swimming part is what gets me. I could do halfway decent to maybe get into tryouts. As long as you can lift a decent amount, you’ll have enough points to not even need to be able to run.
The don’t really expect you to show up with “the skills” because they’ll teach that if you pass hell week. Any CF member can apply to go for selection – clerks, cooks, pilots, anyone. I was in the army infantry for 5 years. I was friends with a guy who transferred successfully JTF2.
Said all kinds of super fit, checked out guys dropped in the first hours. I’ll add that a few years into his time in the JTF2 he was posted to base I was at as an instructor in the urban ops cell, I’d see him at the gym and fitnesa wouldn’t believe the painful workout he put himself through. It was kind of disgusting. Fucking mtf2 water holding a cinder block above his head and all kinds of other intense shit.
They break everyone down to a point were your fitness doesn’t really carry you any more. It becomes all about the mental toughness.
I’m not saying it doesn’t really help to show up in great shape but it’s so so much more about your drive and determination. I’m a pretty confident guy, was in really good shape and performed well in the field under stressful conditions and I can admit that I probably couldn’t have made it.

I do look back and wish I manua though. I don’t doubt you have the fitness to meet the minimum requirements and maybe the mentality too but it takes a special breed to pass selection. The skills all come later and I’d say most focused people can learn them but it’s about being able to carry lbs of kit over brutal terrain with major sleep deprivation, no food and in all the elements nature can throw at you.
For reference, while the minimum score is 75, you’re not getting in with less than as it is very competitive.
Mine’s around on the nose, and I doubt I’d get a call back – most of my friends with better scores did not. That’s really impressive all the same. Makes me proud to know that such amazing people are serving our country.
I think my wrecked 35 year old knees would automatically disqualify me no matter how much I can bench. I meant for initial recruitment – though after doing some digging seems that the armed forces do not have an upper limit on recruitment age. Im pretty sure they used to, and I think it used to be 35 or 38 max. They probably got rid of it because of attrition rates being high.
Average age of SOF around the world in early to mid thirties. You can’t even apply for jtf2 before your Friend of mine went and completed the selection at
