The FORCE Program has two key components:
- A new fitness evaluation which includes four test components, each of which is directly linked to physical demands that CAF members may encounter on operations. The FORCE Evaluation predicts CAF members’ ability to perform the six common military tasks using simple simulations and minimal equipment.
- DFit.ca, the online fitness training platform that prepares CAF members for operations.

|Intermittent Loaded Shuttles
||Using the 20 m lines, complete ten shuttles (1 shuttle = 20 m there, 20 m back), alternating between a loaded shuttle with a 20 kg sandbag and an unloaded shuttle, for a total of 400 m.
||5 minutes 21 seconds|
|20 metre Rushes
||Starting from prone, complete two shuttle sprints (1 shuttle = 20 m there, 20 m back) dropping to a prone position every 10m, for a total of 80 m.
||Carry one 20 kg sandbag and pull a minimum of four on the floor over 20 m without stopping. Number of sandbags being dragged depends on the type of floor.
