Army Medicine is committed to improving the health of its population to increase the readiness and resilience of the Army Family (Soldiers, Army civilians and Family members). Returning the Army to healthy basics, the Performance Triad is a program designed to emphasize physical activity, good nutrition and quality sleep.
Physical fitness is the cornerstone of combat readiness.
Practicing principles of safe and effective training are vital to preventing injuries and improving general health.
The triad informs Soldiers and leaders on how to practice safe running, use proper resistance training techniques, prevent overtraining and increase daily physical activity.
Proper nutrition fuels the body, enabling top-level training. It increases energy and endurance, shortens recovery time between activities and improves focus and concentration.
The triad’s guidance on nutrition for performance teaches about the key nutrients, describes refueling techniques and details strategies for creating a nutrition plan.
Sleep is critical in achieving top physical, mental and emotional health.
The program educates on the many ways in which leaders and Soldiers can eliminate sleep distractors and practice proper sleep hygiene to ensure that optimal, healthy sleep is achieved.
A healthy mind and body are essential for peak performance and education and leader support are crucial for program success.
Leading by example is the best way to encourage healthy behaviors of activity, nutrition and sleep into the daily lives of our Families and subordinates.
The Performance Triad program has educational materials and improvement measurement tools available to assist.
Fort Bragg’s Army Wellness Center is a key enabler of the Performance Triad and provides invaluable wellness service to Soldiers, retirees, their Families and Army civilians at no cost.
