The ShipShape Program is the official Navy weight management program designed to assist Active Duty and Reserve military service members, beneficiaries, and government civilians with making healthy behavior changes in order to lose weight. The eight session program focuses on three essential components for weight loss: mindset, nutrition, and physical activity. The goal of the ShipShape Program is to equip participants with the skills and resources necessary to jumpstart a healthier lifestyle.

The ShipShape Program is highly recommended for Active Duty and Reserve military service members who have failed or are at risk of failing their body composition assessment (BCA) standards. The program presents a healthy and permanent approach to weight loss and can decrease the loss rate of Active Duty and Reserve military service members by helping them to get back within standards, pass the Physical Fitness Assessment (PFA), and continue to achieve long-term weight management goals.
