Bryan Slater and Marjo Catalano of "Slater and Marjo In The Morning" on Live 95.9 out of Pittsfield, MA in Berkshire County are ridiculously competitive.

All it took is for their buddy, Massachusetts National Guard Staff Sergeant Pliny J. Hunt, to mention the Army Combat Fitness Test, and they were hooked.

Slater, a 41-year-old male, and Catalano, a 37-year-old female put their grit to the test on Friday at The National Guard Armory on Vin Hebert St. in Pittsfield.

WHAT IS THE ARMY COMBAT FITNESS TEST?

It's basically the test soldiers take after "boot camp" to see if they're physically fit enough for combat. Current soldiers have to take this test twice a year.

This test is the physical benchmark for validating every Soldier's physical capabilities to operate in a combat situation.
