Spring seems to be a great time to get started on new workout plans, healthier eating, gardens and more! May is even designated as physical fitness and sports month so it was great timing for the DoD Blogger Roundtable to discuss the US Navy Operational Fitness and Fueling System and some new and better ways to help stay healthy!
Then they caught my ear:
They have an IPhone App for their program that includes menu features, five workout plans for different sailor needs, and after downloading can be used without an internet connection. I enjoy technology that helps me improve effort and have written about workout technology before that encouraged me to keep moving.
So when Diana and Lisa Sexauer, Fitness, Sports and Deployed Forces Support Program Manager explained in detail the Navy’s efforts to help the entire naval community including families it was exciting to hear. The IPhone App already has 20,000 downloads and within 30-60 days they are expecting IPad and Android Apps as well. Active Living is being shared across the Navy including command leadership schools, recruits and training schools and now has generated follow on testing for even better ways to help our sailors to eat and stay healthy.
