(WBNG Binghamton) Susan Ciaravino demonstrated one of the challenges she will be facing when she participates in this summer's Civilian Military Combine.

Her trainer, Kristina Martemucci, has been helping her prepare for the PIT.

The Civilian Military Combine tests endurance, strength and agility. It is a four mile obstacle race combined with challenges.

The PIT is a challenge where participants will perform as many reps as possible of three exercises within five minutes.

This will be Ciarvaino's second year competing in the event.
