BUMED Approved Weight Management Program:
  ShipShape is the Navy and Marine Corps Public Health Centers' - approved weight management program, coordinated by the local Navy Medical Treatment Facilities (MTFs). The program was developed and made available at the local MTF level to increase accessibility of a weight management program for Active Duty Sailors and Marines needing assistance in maintaining Physical Readiness Standards. 

ShipShape is designed to provide active-duty personnel with basic information regarding nutrition, stress management, exercise and behavior modification techniques to lower and maintain an acceptable body weight and Body Fat % that is within Navy Standards. Attendance is open to all personnel, especially anyone who exceeds, or is in danger of exceeding, body composition assessment standards. 

The program is also open to family members, retirees and DoD civilians who exceed a healthy body weight or have weight-related health problems.

Military personnel interested in participating in the ShipShape Program should obtain a recommendation and referral from their Commander, Commanding Officer (CO), or Officer in Charge (OIC) through their Command Fitness Leader (CFL).
