SPRC_Sign.jpgThe Drill Sergeant Timothy Kay Soldier Performance Readiness Center is home to the Holistic Health and Fitness teams of both the 165th and 193rd Infantry Brigades. In addition to providing services and resources across all five H2F domains to the Soldiers of the two brigades, the H2F teams also offer classes and events for the entire Fort Jackson community. 

Who is Drill Sergeant Timothy Kay

The Soldier Performance Readiness Center is dedicated in honor of Drill Sergeant  Staff Sgt. Timothy A. Kay.

Kay espoused the highest ideals of the drill sergeant, Fort Jackson and the U.S. Army.

Kay served as a member of the U.S. Army Honor Guard from 2014-2017. He used this time to establish a foundation for fitness, inspiring those around him. This physical discipline and resiliency allowed him to endure his first battle with cancer. In 2018, his cancer entered remission. 

Kay returned to active duty in August of 2018 and became an Army drill sergeant. During his time, Kay shared his story of resiliency, emphasizing how fitness could be the difference between life and death. 

In July of 2021, Kay developed a recurrence with cancer. Despite this diagnosis, Kay continually expressed his desire to train and inspire future Soldiers of the Army. His relentless pursuit of health and fitness allowed him to sustain his second battle with cancer for fourteen months. 

Kay succumbed to complications from his diagnosis in September of 2022. DS Kay was a bona fide example for all past, present, and future soldiers to "NEVER GIVE UP."

What is H2F?

The holistic health and fitness  system is the Army’s primary investment in Soldier readiness and lethality. It seeks to optimize physical and non-physical performance, reduce injury rates, and improve rehabilitation after injury, ultimately increasing the overall readiness of the total Army. The system empowers and equips Soldiers to take charge of their health, fitness, and well-being to optimize individual performance while preventing injury and disease. H2F is an enterprise-wide readiness system that combines all aspects of physical and non-physical human performance optimization under a single governance structure to enable commanders  to improve Soldier health and fitness. This system encompasses five domains:

1. Mental Readiness—The ability to meet the cognitive demands of any task and adapt successfully in the presence of adversity. 

2. Sleep Readiness—The ability to implement the requisite sleep principles and behaviors to support optimal brain and body function.

3. Nutritional Readiness—The ability to recognize, select, and consume the requisite food and drink to meet the physical and non-physical demands of any duty or combat.

4. Spiritual Readiness—The development of personal qualities needed to sustain a person in times of stress, hardship, and tragedy.

5. Physical Readiness—The ability to meet the physical demands of any duty or combat and accomplish the mission.
