The development of the Army Fitness Manual Supplement has been the result of
collaboration between numerous groups of people. The project was spearheaded by the
Canadian Forces Infantry School at Combat Training Centre (CTC) Gagetown based on their
experiences with the CrossFit ® Training Program and their own functional physical fitness
program. The Infantry School’s successes with their programs led them to propose an addition
to the Army Fitness Manual to incorporate some of the training methods that they were using.
The Canadian Forces Personnel Support Agency (CFPSA) contracted Dr. Howie Wenger (the
original author of the Army Fitness Manual) to review both the CrossFit ® training program and
the proposed program submitted by the Infantry School, and to provide recommendations for
using a CrossFit-type program in the Canadian Forces. With these recommendations from Dr.
Wenger 1 and the input from the Infantry School, CFPSA has produced these three new
chapters for the Army Fitness Manual outlining a high intensity functional fitness program called
the “Combat Fitness Program” (CFP). Thank you to the following individuals who have
contributed to the development of this manual.
The Combat Fitness Program (CFP) has been developed in response to Chief of the
Defence Staff (CDS) guidance on the requirement for CF members to be more physically fit
than ever based upon the current operational environment. This Land Force Command
program provides a progression from the “Fit to Fight” Army Fitness Program described in the
first six chapters of this manual by providing a more functional and intense physical fitness
program option. The CFP derived its origins from the CrossFit ® training method, which has
been adapted to meet the special needs of the Canadian Army by incorporating many of the
widely accepted general principles of fitness training taught in the CF. Understanding CF
fitness fundamentals, as well as the background of the CrossFit ® program, will help to better
appreciate the CFP’s blended design.
