Joe excelled in the various fitness measures evaluated by in the Army.

There are many misconceptions of what military training consists of, especially military fitness training.  Military fitness is sometimes described as cookie-cutter or one-size-fits-all.  Joe focuses on the individual in training.  He understands that not everyone has the same goals that drive them and everyone's body responds differently to various modalities of training.
