What is Comprehensive Soldier Fitness?

The Army established Comprehensive Soldier and Family Fitness (CSF2) in October 2009 in an effort to increase the resilience and enhance the performance of Soldiers, their Families, and Army Civilians. The definition of resilience is the mental, physical, emotional, and behavioral ability to face and cope with adversity, adapt to change, and recover, learn and grow from setbacks.
CSF2 is a key component of the Army’s Ready and Resilient Campaign, and in that role, is the Army program designated to build and maintain ready and resilient Soldiers, Family members and Army Civilians. A resilient and holistically fit individual is better able to use the skills needed to think optimistically, face challenges and bounce back from adversity.
CSF2 is made up of three main components: online self-assessment and self-development, training, and metrics and evaluation.
