Physical Training, or PT refers to specialized training strategies and methods of exercise undertaken by UNSC soldiers to help develop them for combat.[1]

The Colonial Militia of Harvest underwent physical training for at least two weeks before beginning real live-fire training exercises. Their PT included ten-kilometer runs, and they were later outfitted with twenty-five-kilogram rucksacks strapped to the trainees' backs, once they got used to the routine.[1]

The following marching chant, called the UNSC Marine Cadence, was sung by the recruits of First and Second Platoons along with Healy:

When I die please bury me deep!

Place an MA5 down by my feet!
Don't cry for me, don't shed no tear!
Just pack my box wtih PT gear!
'Cuz one early morning 'bout zero-five!
The ground will rumble, there'll be lightning in the sky!
Don't you worry, don't come undone!

It's just my ghost on a PT run![2]
