About the Royal Army Physical Training Corps logo

The corps cap badge, which is also worn on the front of its vests, t-shirts and tracksuits, consists of crossed swords surmounted by a crown. The corps motto is Mens sana in corpore sano which means 'a healthy mind in a healthy body'. Its quick march is Be Fit, with words taken from Land and Sea Tales by Rudyard Kipling. It is headquartered at the Army School of Physical Training (ASPT) in Aldershot, but instructors are attached to every battalion and regiment in the British Army, with the senior instructor in every unit usually being a Warrant Officer Class 2 (Quartermaster Sergeant Instructor) QMSI.
