soldier tapeMembers of the military desperate to meet fitness standards are turning to alternate methods to beat the so-called “tape test.”

The test involves measuring a soldier’s waist and neck. Too big a waist-to-neck ratio gets a soldier sent to a months-long fitness and nutrition program. Failing the test three times gets a soldier kicked out of the service all together.

In 2013, more than 1,800 Army soldiers were given the boot for being overweight, nearly four times the number just two years before.

In order to avoid losing their jobs, servicemen and servicewomen are turning to doctors for plastic surgery, and other extreme methods. WAIT! Come and see us first at Body Wrap Fresno!

A failed tape test, even if the solider is later able to pass, can hold up promotions for years for a measure some say isn’t necessarily a good indication of fitness.

While taking someone’s measurement doesn’t account for body fat and definitely doesn’t account for someone’s fitness level, the Army said it has no plans to adjust its standards, and there are those who defend the process as the most efficient way to keep fitness standards high.

“To me it seems like a pretty good compromise because it’s a way to test as many people as possible efficiently and effectively,” said retired marine Lt. Col. Mike Grice.

The military doesn’t condone — or pay for — surgery to pass the tape test, but it doesn’t forbid it either. We will have to wait to see what it says about using the It Works Body wrap to help pass tape!
