Military Exercise


CHAMP’s Mission

Optimize Warfighter mission performance and family readiness through leadership, community engagement, education, and conducting and translating human performance research.

CHAMP’s Vision

Be the premier Department of Defense translational resource in the complete range of disciplines associated with military-unique Human Performance Optimization (HPO) and Total Force Fitness (TFF) for maximizing Warfighter readiness and performance and for optimizing the resilience of the global military family. As it continues to evolve, CHAMP will become an asset for the entire U.S. national security community. 


CHAMP is the DoD Center of Excellence for integration, translation, & education of all topics related to HPO & Total Force Fitness (TFF) and is a collaborative effort among operational, medical, and research communities and policy makers. We translate research for: military operational applications, practical warrior clinical concerns, and DoD policy development — and are ready to answer all HPO questions. Those questions without clear evidence-based or militarily applicable answers help us identify HPO gaps that must be prioritized and scientifically resolved.
