The Fort Irwin Community Wellness/Readiness Program
You can make small changes in your daily routine to increase your physical activity. The American College of Sports Medicine suggests taking the stairs whenever you can, walking to a co-workers desk instead of emailing or calling him/her, picking up a new active hobby (e.g. cycling), standing or moving when talking on your cell phone - just to name a few.
The Army Wellness Center at the Resiliency Center

Testing, primary prevention, preventing disease and injury before they occur, is key to refocusing Army medicine from a healthcare system to a system for health.
Nutrition counseling and various dietary programs are also available through the AWC.
