FORT KNOX, Ky. –
With the majority of physical fitness centers closed across America, the U.S. Army Warrior Fitness Team is bringing its fitness knowledge to the digital space.
The team has expanded its virtual outreach to help people maintain a healthy lifestyle while adhering to social distancing requirements.
The 15 elite Soldier-athletes normally travel the world competing in athletic competitions and assisting in recruiting efforts by promoting healthy lifestyles and sharing the benefits of Army service with the community. For now, the team is creating and sharing content to its social media platforms to interact with audiences and share its members’ expertise.
Approximately 71 percent of today’s youth do not qualify for military service and about 30 percent of those disqualifications are due to obesity and related health issues. The team’s content is designed to motivate people to focus on diet and exercise, which are important for maintaining a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
In the coming weeks, the team will continue to showcase its talents to get people up and moving and to encourage a call to service. Content includes a variety of workouts, question and answer sessions, interviews, and how to tips for performing exercises correctly.
