Comprehensive Airman Fitness

CAF is a holistic approach to develop over-arching Airman fitness and resilience. "Airman" collectively refers to military, civilian, and family members. CAF includes fitness in mental, physical, social, and spiritual domains and is not a stand-alone program or specified training class; instead, CAF is a cultural shift in how we view and maintain fitness in a more comprehensive manner and enables Airmen to hold each other accountable against Air Force Core Values. CAF provides an integrated framework that encompasses many cross-functional education and training efforts, activities, programs, and other equities that play a contributory role in sustaining a fit, resilient, and ready force. Leaders and individuals throughout the force must understand, promote, and support CAF.
