Personal Performance Targets (PPT)
Your PPT is an intermediate benchmark for you to strive for incremental improvement over your IPT. It is customised based on your present fitness level to ensure progressiveness in training.
Your PPT can be determined by either your IPPT results or Body Mass Index (BMI), depending on the IPT programme you have enrolled in.You will be automatically enrolled into a Weight Loss IPT programme if your BMI is 27 and above.
By your IPPT results
For first-time participants, your IPT IPPT results from your 1st session will be compared to your previous year’s IPPT results. The total score from the higher results will be used as the Entry Level to determine your PPT. The table below illustrates the 3 Entry Levels:
|Points Range||Entry Level|
If you have just started your Operationally Ready National Service (ORNS) and not taken your IPPT yet, the results from your first IPT IPPT will be used to determine your PPT instead.
Your PPT Level will be raised automatically in your next IPPT Window once you meet your PPT in your current window, as illustrated in the table below.
|1 (0-15 pts)||Year 1 (Achieve Level 2)
Year 2 (Achieve Level 3)
Year 3 (Achieve IPPT Pass)
|2 (16-30 pts)||Year 1 (Achieve Level 3)
Year 2 (Achieve IPPT Pass)
|3 (31-50 pts)||Year 1 (Achieve IPPT Pass)|
If you scored 10 points in your first IPT IPPT, you will be in Entry Level 1 (0-15 pts). That makes your PPT Level 2 (16-30 pts) – to achieve this PPT, you need to score at least 16 points in your next IPPT within the same IPPT Window.
Upon attaining Level 2, your PPT for your following IPPT Window will be automatically raised to Level 3. You will be required to score at least 31 points. This will continue annually once you have attained the required level until you pass your IPPT. Your PPT will remain the same if you complete your IPT without attaining your PPT.
If you are medically excused from IPPT for 1 or more IPPT Windows, you will need to take another IPPT to reassess your PPT again.
By your BMI
Your height and weight will be taken during your first IPT session to calculate your BMI, which will decide which Performance Band/Level you are in to help determine your PPT. Similarly, your PPT level will be automatically raised in your next IPPT Window once you meet your PPT target in your current window. The table below illustrates a portion of the different Performance Bands/Levels:
|BMI Category||Performance Band/Level|
|33.4 ≥ BMI ≥ 32.5||32.4 ≥ BMI ≥ 31.5||31.4 ≥ BMI ≥ 30.5||30.4 ≥ BMI ≥ 29.5|
|33.4 ≥ BMI ≥ 29.5||1.51m : 75kg||1.51m : 73kg||1.51m : 71kg||1.51m : 68kg|
|1.52m : 76kg||1.52m : 74kg||1.52m : 72kg||1.52m : 69kg|
|1.53m : 77kg||1.53m : 75kg||1.53m : 73kg||1.53m : 70kg|
|1.54m : 78kg||1.54m : 76kg||1.54m : 74kg||1.54m : 71kg|
You can view the full tables according to your BMI Category below:
If your BMI is calculated to be 32 at your first IPT session, you will be in Performance Band/Level 2 (32.4 ≥ BMI ≥ 31.5). That makes your PPT Performance Band/Level 3 (31.4 ≥ BMI ≥ 30.5) – to achieve this PPT, your BMI needs to fall from 32 to at least 31.4 by your last IPT session.
