The Army program named SPEAR (Soldier Performance Education for Advanced Readiness and Resilience) is a fitness and education program focused on the health and welfare of the warfighter with a focus on injury prevention. The program's mission is a holistic approach to the optimization of Soldier physical and mental performance to decrease injury, enhance readiness, and create a more lethal fighting force. A SPEAR manual has been developed to provide a basic outline for leaders. In the coming months, the SPEAR team will begin recording training videos including exercise, sleep, performance psychology, sports nutrition and supplement safety information to make it more accessible to every Soldier.
