Coast Guard Weight and Body Fat Standards Program

The Coast Guard Weight and Body Fat Standards Program is an administrative process geared to ensure that all Coast Guard personnel:

  1. Maintain a healthy weight and body fat percentage.
  2. Are capable of meeting the organization's operational needs and challenges.

All Coast Guard military personnel shall be screened against Weight & Body Fat standards every April and October.
