Start here to learn about the benefits of healthy living as you explore fun fitness:
Exercising with a partner or team helps you maintain consistency in your workouts and motivates you to show up for that early morning session. It’s good to know someone has your back and you’re responsible for theirs. Visit the gymnasium or fitness center on your installation and explore the recreational teams and group activities available through morale, welfare and recreation. You may also want to check out the recreation and fitness options in your community.
There is no better time to bond with your family than on a walk, on a bike trail or in the pool. Even dancing together in your living room or doing active chores around the house, such as raking leaves or moving boxes, counts for physical activity that you can enjoy together.
Everyone could use a cheerleader to inspire fitness goals. Connect with a Military OneSource health and wellness coach to clarify your focus, keep you on course, celebrate your achievements and prepare you for the unexpected. A coach can help you lose weight, get in better shape, manage stress, tackle transitions and more.
Understanding the risks associated with extreme conditioning programs can help you reap the benefits of peak fitness, while avoiding injury from overtraining. Make sure your goal to better your health doesn’t end up doing more harm than good.
Military OneSource provides a variety of wellness apps to help you stay strong and resilient in mind and body. Take advantage of available resources to improve your resilience and keep you and your family moving, motivated and on the road to better health.
