Listen to “GETTING IN SHAPE FOR NEW YEAR BY TRAINING LIKE A SOLDIER Learn Life Changing Benefits of Army Reserve’s Holistic Health Plan” on Spreaker.
As the new year gets underway, Americans are setting new health and fitness goals for themselves and their families. To help stick to these goals throughout the year, everyone may want to take lessons from the best. The Army Reserve is taking health and fitness to a new level – combining a new challenge called the Double Eagle Fitness Challenge along with their Holistic Health and Fitness System (H2F).
The H2F System is an Army-wide program used to improve and prepare Soldiers for the increasingly challenging environments and adversaries they face in this modern era. It includes five disciplines of physical and non-physical readiness such as:
Physical: building strength, speed, endurance
Sleep: supporting behaviors that provide optimal brain function
Nutrition: recognizing optimum food/drink to meet physical and non-physical demands
Mental: adapting successfully through adverse situations
Spiritual: creating practices to build resilience in times of stress & hardship
The Double Eagle Fitness Challenge is a 12-week Army Reserve program that includes:
High intensity interval training (HIIT)
The new system is designed to bring a cultural change to Soldiers’ perceptions of training for the demands of close combat while building agile, adaptable, and fit troops. Army Reserve Soldiers in various locations, with varying schedules, use the program’s templates as guideposts for their progression of Soldier Readiness.
The program also provides education, coaching, mentoring, messaging, and outreach to improve, restore and maintain the readiness, resilience, and performance of the Total Army.
Learning more about this top-notch health and fitness program can also equip average Americans with the skills to be their best in the new year.
On Friday, January 28th, join Sergeant Major Robert M. Setter, who developed the Double Eagle Fitness Challenge. He’ll discuss the importance of fitness training for Soldiers and how everyday Americans can gain an advantage in their own health and fitness programs by learning about the Army Reserve approach.
