How does the P3T program at
Ft. Belvoir work?


 

      Studies conducted by the U.S. Army Public Health Command found that compared to ‘on-your-own PT,’  a consolidated installation program of 20 Soldiers or more improved outcomes for Soldiers who participated. Benefits included, improved individual readiness, APFT pass rates, and decreased risk of injury.

      The program at Fort Belvoir is a consolidated installation program. PT sessions are offered both during the morning from 0630-0730 and afternoon from 1530-1630 Tuesday – Friday to accommodate varied work schedules. Education sessions are offered once a week on Thursday mornings @ 0630-0730 for all participants. Army Soldiers assigned to Ft. Belvoir are enrolled once the medical clearance is provided by the health care provider.

      Enrolled Soldiers will conduct various exercises to include water aerobics, circuit training, muscle strength, endurance exercises, and cardiovascular activities. Upon entering the program, Soldiers will also receive an at home exercise DVD to use while on maternity leave.

      Unique to Ft. Belvoir, we welcome multiservice participation. Any pregnant or postpartum active or reserve service member to include Navy, Airforce, Coast Guard, or Marines may volunteer to participate (pending space available) with medical clearance. Enrollment for non-Army Soldiers is through the Installation Instructor Trainer.
