DALLAS –The military community can put in work each week with the Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s fitness experts during “BE FIT Live” workouts on Facebook.
Exchange BE FIT ambassador Roy Montez and Air Force Senior Master Sgt. Sonja Berry host the live workouts, typically airing Mondays at 11 a.m. Central, on the Exchange’s Facebook page. The sessions integrate interval training, core workouts, strength exercises and more.
“The Exchange started ‘BE FIT Live’ in 2020 to encourage staying active during the COVID-19 pandemic,” Montez said. “Since then, the weekly broadcasts have created a sense of community. And, best of all, the live workouts can be modified to adjust all fitness levels—anyone can participate.”
Each broadcast begins with a warmup and workout overview. BE FIT ambassadors coach viewers throughout the workout and answer questions from the military community on the livestream feed in real time.
“‘BE FIT Live’ is great for a quick workout in the office or at home,” said Berry, the Exchange’s assistant director for public health and food safety. “My own fitness levels have increased from the BE FIT workouts—it’s like having a free trainer every week.”
The Exchange’s BE FIT program empowers Soldiers, Airmen, Guardians, Veterans and families to make healthy lifestyle choices.
“The Exchange is committed to producing programming for the military community that encourages a healthy lifestyle,” said Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Kevin Osby, Exchange senior enlisted advisor. “Live workouts are another way the Exchange keeps Warfighters ready and resilient year-round.”
Since 2020, Montez and Berry have led more than 80 virtual workouts. Episodes can be found on the Exchange’s BE FIT Hub page, YouTube page and on Facebook . Visit ShopMyExchange.com/befit to learn more.
