Mission

Army Wellness Centers provide integrated and standardized primary prevention programs and services that promote enhanced and sustained healthy lifestyles to improve the overall well-being of Service Members, their Families, Civilians, Retirees, and Eligible Contractors.
 
The Army Wellness Center (AWC) programs help build and sustain good health. AWC Health Educators and services empower individuals to set their own health goals and achieve them. AWC programs and services address lifestyle change in areas that affect both short- and long-term health, engaging people in their “life space”—the places where they live, work, relax and rest.

AWC offers the following programs and services:

 

  • Heath Assessment Review
    • The foundation of the AWC Core programs that include a series of assessments and questionnaires to determine the current level of an individual’s health and identify the changes that will be necessary to reduce risk factors for disease prevention, and ability to increase physical activity safely
       
  • Body Composition Analysis
    • Body fat percentage is a value that tells you how much of your body weight is made up of fat.  Knowing and tracking your body composition rather than a number on a traditional scale is a better indicator of health. The AWC utilizes the BOD POD, known as the practical gold standard in body composition testing
    • The BOD POD uses air displacement to measure fat and fat free mass and can accommodate a wide range of populations. A full test requires only about 5 minutes, and provides highly accurate, safe, comfortable, and fast test results
    • Appointment Preparation:  No food, exercise, drink, or nicotine for 5 hours prior to appointment; All clothing material MUST be spandex, lycra, or nylon (men: spandex, compression shorts, speedo / women: spandex bottoms (have to be above the knee), compression shorts with sports bra that does not have pads or metal, or bathing suit without pads or metal)
