The Charles King Fitness Center (CKFC) offers another way for active duty service members to stay in shape.

Personal trainers are just one of the many services that the facility offers to keep their military patrons fit.

“This is a great program for active duty members,” said Joanna Wyatt, CKFC fitness director. “However it is underr utilized. We have three to four personal trainers and only 20 people who have signed up for the sessions.”

The personal trainer sessions are an hour long and are instructed by nationally-accredited trainers. Whether you would like individual training or a group with friends, the trainers
can tailor a perfect fitness regime for most people.

“Anyone can join the classes if you are a Charles King patron,” Wyatt said. “We follow the Navy’s mission nutrition guidelines and we are really involved in the active-duty community. Whether we are helping commands with their fitness enhancement program (FEP) or running our own FEP, we know what Sailors need to stay in shape.”

The mission nutrition facilitator’s course is a standardized, science-based nutrition education workshop designed to help educate Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) fitness instructors and culinary specialists on nutrition topics affecting Sailors, family members and retirees.

Despite being military-fitness friendly, the program has only attracted dependents. CKFC hopes they can encourage more active- duty personnel to try out ake advantage of the program.

“We offer 12 free personal sessions,” she said. “Ask your command fitness leaders about them. These programs are for you to help continue your military career and maintain a healthy lifestyle.”
