Military personnel are obviously a relatively healthy group, since all have passed a physical examination before admittance, and those who develop incapacitating conditions while in the service are usually discharged. Because of more regular physical activities, military personnel are generally in better shape than most civilians.
Since the human body size and shape have an impact on these elements, it is definitely no surprise that people in the military differ in the anthropometric measurement (the assessment of the size, shape, and composition of the human body) with members of the civilian population.

Studies in the past indicate that most those in the service tend to be leaner and more muscular. There were only a few persons at the extremes of body size. Generally, information obtained from the present survey show good coordination with those military findings which are available for comparison.
According to a study done on the ages 18–79 from 1960-1962, these are the following observations:
- 90% of men weigh between 57 to 98 kilograms, averaging to around 76 kilograms. Their weight reaches its peak at 35 to 54 years of age and decreases to an estimated 68 kilograms by the age of 75 to 79.
- 90% of women weigh between 47 to 90 kilograms with an average of 64 kilograms. At 55 to 64 years old, their weight reaches its maximum average at 69 kilograms then drops to 62 kilograms by the age of 75 to 79.
- Men’s heights range from 63.6 to 72.8 inches with an average of 68.2 inches and decreases with age as well.
- Women’s heights range from 59 to 67.1 inches and averaging at around 63 inches.

In sports, weight classifications were designed to ensure healthy, safe, and fair participation. However, not all sports or activities in which weight might play a role in performance use a weight classification system. In activities such as dance, distance running, gymnastics, and cycling, weight and body composition are believed to influence physical performance and the aesthetics of performance.
Long-term health benefits of maintaining a healthy body weight include decreased cardiovascular risk factors, reduced blood pressure at rest, and controlled blood sugar levels. In females, lower body fat may also protect against breast and other reproductive cancers.
