Abstract : It is obvious that the study of fitness and development of fitness programs is not a haphazard process in the Army and longer. The scientific resources of the Medical Research and Development Command and The Surgeon General are being utilized to make physical training in the Army more effective and to insure that our Army is brought to a high level of fitness and maintained at a ready-to-go level to meet any mission or emergency.
