To go through a journey you need ample energy and strength, so you are not drained and depleted when you hit the challenges of the road. And to be strong, one has  to train. And who knows more about training than The US Army?

Together with a team of scientists led by Dr. Marty Seligman from UPenn, The US Army developed the Comprehensive Soldier Fitness program: a novel set of assessments, interventions, and coaching, provided both online and in-person, an built around five pillars of soldier fitness:

  • Physical
  • Social
  • Emotional
  • Family
  • Spiritual

The army has a legacy of creating strong individuals, but in the past focus has been placed on physical strength. The expansion to emotional, social, and spiritual strength of soldiers is not only a smart investment. To me it is also a token of the care and appreciation of the army for its soldiers and for their well-being. What do you think about this program?
