The Air Combat Command-mandated, quarterly Comprehensive Airman Fitness week begins May 20, here.

CAF is comprised of four pillars: physical, social, spiritual and mental fitness. Leadership has decided that for this quarter’s CAF week, the focus will be on social fitness.

“CAF is an Air Force concept that is significant to mission accomplishment and personal development,” said Vincent Howard, 355th Fighter Wing community support coordinator. “Our CAF week is meant to enable all Airmen, all civilians, all ranks to embrace the philosophy of whole-person fitness on the physical, social, mental, and spiritual level.”

The social fitness pillar focuses on developing and maintaining trusted, valued relationships, personal and professional, that are personally fulfilling and foster good communication, including the exchange of ideas, views and experiences.

The mental fitness pillar’s focus is about approaching life’s challenges in a positive way. The physical fitness pillar focuses on performing and excelling in physical activities. The spiritual fitness pillar focuses on strengthening a set of beliefs, principles or values.

“Comprehensive fitness enhances and supports resiliency, which is absolutely essential to both Airmen and family well being,” Howard said. “CAF week helps us to highlight resiliency principles, so that we can teach and speak to it throughout the year.”
