YOU are a member of the first Women’s Army in the history of the United States. You are one of the small percentages of women qualified in mind and body to perform a soldier’s noncombat duties. These duties are many. The demands of war are varied, endless, and merciless. To satisfy these demands, you must be fit. You have successfully passed a rigid physical examination.

You are organically sound. Now you must build the strength and stamina, the control and coordination, to do a man’s work any hour of the day, every day of the month. To condition your body so that it may meet every demand made of it, a course of planned exercises has been developed. It has been planned by women, for women. It recognizes your capacities. It is based upon a knowledge of the tasks you may be called upon to perform.

These exercises are simple and progressive. By slow, methodical stages, they carry you to a new and better state of physical condition, visibly expressed in a correct, attractive carriage and an abundance of energy. They assist in supplying the mental, emotional, and physical stability you need to become an effective member of an effective organization. The eyes of the Army — and of the Nation — are on you. It is of prime importance that you look well, feel well, and work well throughout your military service.
