This program provides awareness and education to all members of the military community that encourages people to increase control over and to improve their full health potential. Health Promotion supports the achievement and sustainment of a fit and mission ready force and healthy populations, at home and abroad, in peacetime and in conflict. Each of these programs aligns with the US Department of Health and Human Services' Healthy People 2020 and the DOD's Operation Live Well and the Healthy Base Initiatives.

The fitness program supports, maintains and improves military readiness and resiliency through instructional combat fitness activities and skill development. The Fitness Program provides the necessary physical fitness training areas and facilities to ensure the DOD military personnel are sufficiently fit to accomplish their assigned missions. Fitness programs are designed to promote the physical readiness of the Marines and directly support the accomplishment of the military mission.

The Military Aquatic Program provides required military training related to water operations and survival. It provides Active Duty aquatics training, use of the facilities for unit physical training (PT), lap swimming, aqua fitness classes/activities, military swim qualification or remedial training and instruction, and other unit activities. This program includes AMP-IT oversight and supports service members in their requirement to remain physically fit and mission ready.
