RAF Return To Fitness Programme Week 4

Are you preparing for a Fitness test or want to return to fitness now training facilities are open again? 

RAF Physical Training Instructors have created a Return to Fitness Package to help personnel maintain their health, fitness and wellbeing.

"The ongoing pandemic has presented many challenges and to coincide with the gradual easing of restrictions our RAF Physical Training Instructors have created a Return to Fitness Package to assist Regular and Reserve personnel to maintain their health, fitness and wellbeing.  Based on a progressive programme of activities and including important nutritional advice, personnel will have access to information leaflets, videos and audio files for use at home, at the gym or outdoors."

Welcome to the final week of the Baseline Phase.  Hopefully by now, you are performing the exercises with confidence and progressing well with the running.  The aim at the end of this week is to run for 20 minutes without stopping – a great achievement and something easily within your grasp if you have managed to complete the programme to date. 

Included in the fourth phase is Defence Dietitian, Ali Booker’s, hugely informative video on macronutrients (protein, fats and carbs), micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) and how they support overall health, performance and weight management.  Check out the first video below to reap the nutritional as well as physical benefits of this series.

The videos are all available from the Official RAF YouTube Channel and the Return To Fitness page
