Wellness Program. Wellness is an official and integral part of the Air Force Junior ROTC program. The objective of the Wellness Program is to motivate cadets to lead healthy, active lifestyles beyond program requirements and into their adult lives.
The AFJROTC wellness program at Bunkerhill is designed to develop leaders of character who are physically and mentally tough by engaging cadets in activities that promote and enhance a healthy life style, physical fitness, movement behavior, and psychomotor performance. Wellness class is held every Friday. All students are required to “dress out” for their Wellness Program class. Focus is on individual base line improvements as measured against national standards established by the Presidential Physical Fitness Program, calculated with age and gender considerations. All cadets will complete the 5-event Presidential Physical Fitness challenge during the fall semester to establish baseline scores in each event and create an individual training/improvement plan. All cadets will complete the 5-events again during the spring semester to gauge individual improvement in each event as well as overall age and gender national standing.
