Navy Fitness Announces Three New Workout Series and Apps

WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Commander, Navy Installations Command's Navy Operational Fitness and Fueling System (NOFFS) program is expected to launch three new workout series apps for your smart phone or tablet, June 20. These high-intensity programs - the Strength, Endurance, and Sandbag series - provide Sailors with a "best-in-class" physical fitness and nutrition program.

NOFFS was developed by the Navy in partnership with EXOS (formerly Athlete's Performance Institute). The Operational Series provides the foundational exercises that are designed to replicate the activities Sailors conduct in their operational duties: lifting, pushing, pulling, and carrying. Each additional series (Strength, Endurance, and Sandbag) was developed to provide training modes that address the special interests of users.

"The Strength Series will assist Sailors with developing the strength that is needed to perform at their highest level," said Nick Aures, Performance Enhancement Dietitian, Commander, Navy Installations Command. "There are three training phases within the series that are intended to progressively build total work capacity and improve cardiovascular fitness."

The first phase, Build Muscle, is focused on building lean muscle mass and improving the body's capacity to handle greater physical demands through a higher volume of work. The second phase, Get Strong, focuses on building strength through fewer repetitions and higher intensity. The final phase, Get Powerful, harnesses the user's newfound strength and trains their muscles to be fast and forceful. Click here to read full article.
