The goal of the Fitness and Sports Program is to motivate the entire Navy-Air Force population, including active-duty service members, family members, retirees and DoD civilians, to adopt a personal plan to get fit, stay fit and set an example of physical readiness others want to follow. Individual and group instruction is available from certified fitness professionals in cardiovascular conditioning, strength training, flexibility and nutrition. Intramural sports programs, such as flag football, softball, basketball, volleyball and soccer provide another outlet to promote fitness and establish esprit de corps.
