Military Exercise

Every Warrior an Athlete

CHAMP is the DoD Center of Excellence for integration, translation and education of all topics related to human performance optimization (HPO) & Total Force Fitness (TFF). We reside at the Uniformed Services University (USU), where we translate research for: military operational applications, practical Warfighter clinical concerns, and DoD policy development. CHAMP is 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.
