Abstract : The establishment of effective civilian corporate fitness programs at installation and activity levels presents a considerable challenge to Army management. Programs that have significantly upgraded military health and fitness cannot be duplicated within the civilian workforce. Demographics, and differences in the personnel management systems of the military and civilian components require different approaches. In instituting civilian corporate fitness in the Department of the Army, we must not ignore lessons learned in private industry and civilian governmental agencies. Programs in these more applicable arenas have succeeded grandly and failed miserably. This essay reviews some of this valuable experience, offers views about Army's posture at the advent of the Civilian Corporate Fitness Program, and advocates the program as an integral part of civilian personnel management; a view that is believed critical to its ultimate level of success.
