Fit and Healthy

A core element of being in a military organisation is maintaining physical fitness and personal wellbeing 

Fitness is an important aspect of NZDF life and no matter what, all Defence People take pride in their physical and mental fitness. The NZDF also promotes a positive approach to personal wellbeing offering support and opportunities for personal growth. NZDF ensures its people keep a healthy mind and body in order to maximise their outputs when required. 

Our people take pride in their physical and mental wellbeing and bring this into their civilian employment. They tend to be healthier, less likely to take sick leave, and drug free as per NZDF policy.
