Have things gotten stale with your unit PT? Maybe it’s time to shake things up.
The sailors of Riverine Squadron 2 in Portsmouth, Virginia — among others who emailed us — know that a little creativity can go a long way in making command PT more than a mindless early-morning slog through the same old exercises.
On any given day, unit PT there can be anything from a CrossFit-style workout to trail running in the local state park to a game of Ultimate Frisbee.
“Switching things up on a daily basis makes PT fun, keeps everyone motivated, and still accomplishes the same goals: Stay in shape, promote a healthy lifestyle, mental and physical fitness, developing the individual and team,” says Navy Chief Barry Brown.
