In brief: Sorry
All active duty members must pass physical fitness testing and body fat / weight measurements twice a year. It can be waived during pregnancy or with particular medical problems.
However, repeated waivers or failures will end a person's military career.

In the military band.
A friend of mine was in the US Marine Corps, never did a pushup nor toted a rifle, he simply played the trumpet!
