Research Paper Title
Total Fitness for the 21st Century. Conference Report. Institute for Alternative Futures.
Responding to the creation of a wide variety of programs to address the fitness of U.S. military personnel, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff ADM Mike Mullen tasked the Uniformed Services University (USU) Consortium for Health and Military Performance (CHAMP) to define “Total Fitness” and to identify metrics that can be used to measure it.
CHAMP engaged the Samueli Institute to organise a conference that would bring together military and civilian experts from a variety of fields, as well as personnel from the line, to develop a definition and the associated metrics.
The Samueli Institute engaged the Institute for Alternative Futures (IAF) to design and help facilitate the conference, Total Fitness for the 21st Century, which was held at the USU on December 6-9, 2009.
This report summarises the conference findings.
