USAG Italy MWR Mission Essential Fitness (MEF) Program, in support of the 173rd Airborne Infantry brigade Combat Team (173rd ABCT), developed a one-of-its-kind opportunity to test Soldier's physical readiness by challenging their strength, power, speed, and agility using the latest in functional fitness techniques.

On February 19, 2019, the USAG Italy MEF Team unveiled a challenging indoor obstacle course at the Del Din Fitness Center based on input from the 173rd ABCT, COL James B. Bartholomees. The course is modeled after the Indoor Obstacle Course Test (IOCT) at the United States Military Academy West Point and has been specifically designed with Army Combat Fitness Test (ACFT) in mind. The MEF Team designed the course to utilize the newly installed Alpha Warrior Rig with the goal to improve Soldier and unit readiness, transform the Army's fitness culture, while at the same time reducing preventable injuries and enhancing mental toughness and stamina.

The Vicenza Family and MWR and USAG Italy Sports, Fitness and Aquatics team is excited to bring this training opportunity to all Soldiers in US Army Garrison Italy, for more information, contact Ederle Fitness Center MEF staff.
