dc.description.abstractEmpirical tests have demonstrated a direct correlation between physical fitness and performance during sustained military operations. Physical is probably the single most important factor for the individual Marine. Currently, the Marine Corps does not promote a "holistic" approach to physical fitness that accentuates the development of a Marines strength, anaerobic and aerobic power. The objective of this thesis is to present how physical training in the Marine Corps is presently conducted and show how it can be enhanced. The focal point of a quality fitness program is the base fitness center, and although the Marine Corps concurs that fitness is a key ingredient to combat readiness, it chooses to operate the fitness centers as a recreational asset. This thesis identifies fitness centers (gyms) as the core for implementing an aggressive fitness program within the Marine Corps and argues that they should run as operational entities and completely financed with appropriated funds.en_US
