Body Composition Screenings have started

By Chief Warrant Officer 4 Allyson E.T. Conroy, MyCG Staff

On Oct. 1, 2021, the Body Composition Program resumed, returning full administrative consequences for non-compliant military members. While the requirements for military members to meet Body Composition Standards has remained unchanged during the pandemic, the administrative consequences were placed on hold. That hold is being lifted beginning Oct. 1, 2021.

We know this can be a little daunting for some people, so we want to offer a couple of resources to help alleviate potential stress. 

  • Find information on a variety of health subjects like nutrition, exercise, and dietary supplements at the Human Performance Resource Center website.
  • Find weight management resources on the Office of Work-Life Programs website
  • Contact CG SUPPORT for health coaching: 855-CGSUPRT (855-247-8778) or

MyCG has also published a number of articles to assist you with healthy choices:

If you are concerned that you may not be in compliance with the Body Composition policy, please talk with your command or your supervisor who should be able to assist you to find medical health and wellness resources to achieve compliance.
