CANADIAN ARMED FORCES PHYSICAL FITNESS STRATEGY
THE CA PHYSIC NADIAN AR AL PE RFORM MED FORC ES ANCE STRATE GY
The Chief of the Defence Staff has released BALANCE, the new Canadian Armed Forces Physical Performance Strategy, to support Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) leadership and personnel in their efforts to build a culture of fitness, improve physical performance and increase operational effectiveness.
“We have a collective responsibility within the Canadian Armed Forces to develop and sustain a strong, healthy and fit military. This begins with leaders who are fully committed to a culture of physical fitness and wellness, where soldiers, sailors, and airmen and airwomen take their wellbeing seriously and choose a lifestyle dedicated to eating well, engaging in regular physical fitness activities, maintaining a healthy weight, obtaining sufficient sleep and actively adopting injury prevention strategies.” - General J.H. Vance, CMM, MSC, CD, Chief of the Defence Staff Canadian Armed Forces. Promoting active living and integrating friends and family into one’s active leisure activities is part of this initiative. It is important to encourage personnel to leave work at work. Evenings and weekends should be for connecting with family and friends, unwinding, and recharging our batteries. There are so many ways you can unwind the body and mind through sport, leisure activities, clubs and other activities. Play can be a major part of a balanced approach to life!
