Total Force Fitness

Welcome to Total Force Fitness, a program that focuses on your entire health throughout your military career. Readiness is measured in more than just physical fitness and medical status. Through Total Force Fitness, we’re going to talk about other areas in your life – like social, spiritual, environmental, and financial – to make sure you and your community are ready for you to do your job.

Because we’re changing the way we talk about health, we created this portal to give you the latest news in Total Force Fitness and information on how its dimensions affect total health.
