In November I will be in Pensacola, FL at Naval Air Station Pensacola, where I will be starting 8 months of flight training and education. After that is finished I will continue my education at one of the 8 aviation survival training centers in the US, which is TBD at this point. Once finished with this I will be an aerospace and operational physiologist for the US Navy.

The LifeFit Center is now proud to say that it is officially an Exercise is Medicine on Campus facility.
We at the LifeFit Center are making a commitment to uphold and promote these guiding principles of the Exercise is Medicine on Campus (EIMC) Program.
• Exercise and physical activity are important to health and the prevention and treatment of many chronic diseases.
• More should be done in university and college settings to encourage students to establish lifelong exercise and physical activity habits that have the power to significantly improve the quality of students’ lives.
• Support the American College of Sports Medicine’s (ACSM’s) efforts to bring a greater focus on exercise and physical activity in university and college settings.
