Promising Practices

Leadership-driven fitness initiative - Officers and leadership lead fitness initiatives in the Coast Guard and at Fort Sill, where it is known as the Commanders Fitness Challenge.

Comparison of weight remediation programs across the services - Best practices and evaluation are derived from active duty weight remediation programs including:

High Intensity Tactical Training and Aquatic Maximum Power Intensive Training - High Intensity Tactical Training, or HITT, improves combat readiness while reducing the likelihood of injury through physical fitness training and nutritional guidelines. The aquatics-based fitness alternative, AMP-IT, is an aquatics-based fitness alternative for individuals requiring a challenging, but low-impact alternative to HITT training or physical training.

Value of embedded physical training leaders - This high-impact program embeds expert training leaders with command groups to lead and improve physical training.

Adult sports program - This intramural sports program is specifically designed for adults led by the Coast Guard with excellent participation rates and a wide range of activity and involvement.
