This United States Army publication, Field Manual FM 7-22 Holistic Health and Fitness October 2020, establishes the Army’s doctrine for the readiness training of Soldiers. It is a full revision and expansion on physical readiness training doctrine. FM 7-22 presents individualized training and testing that builds peak performance in all Soldiers. It is the foundation of unit readiness. In an era of multi-domain operations all Soldiers must be able to fight and win in both defensive and offensive operations that occur without notice. The goal of the Holistic Health and Fitness (H2F) System is to build physical lethality and mental toughness to win quickly and return home healthy. See ATP 7-22.01 for H2F testing, and ATP 7-22.02 for H2F drills and exercises. The principal audience for FM 7-22 is leaders at all organizational levels. All leaders are trainers. Leaders include officers, warrant officers, noncommissioned officers, and those Department of the Army (DA) Civilians in leadership positions. Trainers and educators throughout the Army will also use this publication. Commanders and staff will establish training programs consistent with FM 7-22 and in consultation with their H2F teams and master fitness trainers (MFTs). Training that addresses both the physical and nonphysical aspects of Soldier readiness is considered by senior Department of Defense (DOD) leadership to be essential to mission success. This publication comprises the strategic underpinning of the Army’s H2F System. This doctrine and the regulations that support it apply to the Active Army, the Army National Guard/Army National Guard of the United States and the United States Army Reserve, unless otherwise stated.
