Comprehensive Soldier and Family Fitness

Master Resilience Training textbook

The J9 Resilience Program is dedicated to the physical, emotional and mental health of Indiana Guard Soldiers, Families and DA civilians.

The core program focuses on helping personnel achieve and maintain a state of fitness, rather than addressing issues after they arise.

At the heart of the process is Comprehensive Soldier and Family Fitness (CSF2):

"A structured, long term assessment and development program to build the resilience and enhance the performance of every Soldier, Family member and DA civilian."

Mission:Develop and institute a holistic fitness program for Soldiers, families, and Army civilians in order to enhance performance and build resilience.

Vision: An Army of balanced, healthy, self-confident Soldiers, families and Army civilians whose resilience and total fitness enables them to thrive in an era of high operational tempo and persistent conflict.
