BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — A group of teens challenged their minds and body Saturday morning with a fitness test that pushed them to the limits.

A physical fitness test was held for those seeking a spot as a Kern County Devil Pup.

The teenagers, aged 14-17, are anticipating a spot as a Devil Pup and to enter into a 10-day program to be held at the Marine Corps Base in Camp Pendleton.

The youth program strives to develop its participants personal discipline, physical fitness, teamwork and respect for others.

The test consisted of push ups, pull ups, sit ups and a one mile run.

The next step in the process will be an interview with a local Devil Pups liaison representative.
