An Innovative Academic-ROTC Partnership: Enhanced Physical Readiness Education and Training Partnership
by Donna Wolf, PhD, CSCS, TSAC-F
A high level of fitness is required to be a successful military member. Developing an effective strategy to improve physical fitness training may help lower musculoskeletal injury rates and improve performance therefore, improving military readiness. Previous research has shown that the largest barrier to injury prevention is lack of trained personnel and time to educate the soldiers on proper form. Therefore, we designed an entry-level program to combat the barriers to implementation of a successful fitness program. The Army ROTC and Health, Physical Education, and Exercise Science department of Norfolk State University 9NSU) collaborated to improve the educational, motivational, and physical readiness of cadets entering the program. This project will provide pilot data that will allow for a broader use of the intervention.
