America is facing an overweight epidemic, and the Marine Corps is not immune to this problem. The percentage of overweight Marines doubled between January 2003 and December 2008. The objective of this research was to assess the current Marine Corps physical fitness and nutrition programs and their effectiveness as perceived by Marines. The authors conducted surveys and interviews to gain insight on how Marines felt the Marine Corps remedial programs (BCP, RCP, and MAP) and the Semper Fit program supported them in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
