This week in Air Force Times, staff writer Oriana Pawlyk writes about an airman who is turning his fitness routine into a competition success.

She writes:

Many airmen worry about an upcoming PT test, but this airman doesn’t just perform for his leadership — he also performs for the judges.

Second Lt. David Simon from the 45th Operations Support Squadron, Patrick Air Force Base, Fla., recently placed second overall in the “muscle model” category during a World Beauty Fitness and Fashion competition held in Florida.

“Since joining the Air Force, I’ve been pretty much working out consistently,” Simon said. He enlisted in 2000.

“I never really changed anything with my weight lifting repetitions. I just changed my nutrition and diet [to prep for the competition].”
