The FORCE Rewards Program is designed to recognize Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) personnel who achieve high levels of health-related fitness and operational readiness on their FORCE Fitness Profile, as part of their annual FORCE Evaluation. In line with the CAF objective of maintaining high levels of health-related fitness and operational readiness, this program is being implemented to motivate CAF personnel to pursue physical activity while recognizing those who achieve excellence.
After successfully completing the FORCE Evaluation, CAF personnel are plotted on the FORCE Fitness Profile. The results of the FORCE Fitness Profile are accumulated from the four components of the FORCE Evaluation, a predicted VO2 max as well as a waist circumference measurement. Local PSP Fitness staff will inform you if you are eligible for the FORCE Rewards Program and, if so, how to claim your reward on the FORCE Rewards page on the Logistik Unicorp website.
How does it work?
Based upon the results of over 109,000 FORCE Evaluations performed in 2016-2017, thresholds were created to ensure 50% of the CAF could achieve an Incentive level. Approximately 34% could achieve Bronze, 14% Silver, 2% Gold and 0.1% Platinum.
Age, and gender-specific scoring tables were updated for each of the FORCE components to ensure a fair distribution of points. These 100-point scales are combined to make the 400 point operational fitness score.
Health-related fitness is scored on a 100-point scale where predicted VO2 max (cardiovascular endurance) accounts for 75 points and waist circumference accounts for the remaining 25 points.
The FORCE Fitness Profile is a tool that provides you with feedback on your current level of health-related fitness and operational readiness. This tool, along with the FORCE Fitness Profile Calculator, can be used to help you understand your current fitness level in order to help you prepare for your next FORCE Evaluation.
Effective 1 January 2019, the program will be administered within the calendar year. Eligibility will be annual; from 1 January to 31 December.
Who is eligible for the FORCE Rewards Program?
CAF Regular Force and Class B Reserve Force personnel who achieve Silver or higher on the FORCE Fitness Profile are eligible to claim a reward.
What are the rewards, and do I have choices?
The rewards are based on the FORCE Fitness Profile level you achieved. The reward for achieving Silver is a t-shirt. The reward for achieving Gold is a long sleeve hoodie. For those who achieve Platinum, you will be presented a long sleeve hoodie, a pin and a certificate of recognition by a Sr. NCO of your Base/Wing/Unit.” Periodic surveys will be sent to a random sample of the CAF for feedback and ideas related to the FORCE Rewards Program.
Get active and be ready to challenge yourself to a higher level of fitness and get rewarded!
