Why is physical activity important to you? 

Military leaders have always recognized that the effectiveness of Soldiers depends largely on their physical condition. Full spectrum operations place a premium on the Soldier's strength, stamina, agility, resiliency, and coordination. Victory—and even the Soldier's life—so often depend upon these factors. To march long distances in fighting load through rugged country and to fight effectively upon arriving at the area of combat; to drive fast-moving tanks and motor vehicles over rough terrain; to assault; to run and crawl for long distances; to jump in and out of craters and trenches; and to jump over obstacles; to lift and carry heavy objects; to keep going for many hours without sleep or rest—all these activities of warfare and many others require superb physical conditioning.


Being "combat-ready"

·  These activities are no longer limited to combat arms Soldiers. From the outset of Operation Iraqi Freedom and the assault on the 507th Maintenance Company (and the abduction of PFC Jessica Lynch) the need for every Soldier to be “Combat Ready” has never been more apparent.

· Soldiers need to prepare for combat the way athletes train for competition

· Every Soldier is required to move into and out of cover and concealment, crouch, run, move around, over, and under obstacles, sprint, jump, demonstrate explosive power and landing.
