In June, Navy Fitness introduced the new Navy Operational Fitness and Fueling Series (NOFFS) application (app) for iPhone. The app was designed to provide service members with an easy-to-use performance tool, assisting Sailors and Marines in achieving their required high physical standards.
The app offers a complete fitness program. It includes a virtual trainer and injury prevention techniques. Exercises are demonstrated through clear video and instructional photos. The virtual meal builder feature of the app includes nutritional guidance, helping Sailors keep good eating habits as well as stay physically active.
Mark McFarland, Pearl HarborHickam fitness training director, said this program is an important asset to service members. “This app gives them the fitness tools needed and empowers them when they forward deploy so they can succeed on the battlefield. With a higher level of physical fitness, they will have a higher level of success on the battle field,” McFarland said.
Chief Gunner’s Mate Bennoit Surge said the app is an essential tool both for himself and the modern Sailor.
“The convenience of having 1,700plus exercises at your fingertips has made getting physically fit much easier to do in the limited time that busy Sailors have,” Surge said.
The NOFFS program is free and can now be accessed anywhere via mobile device, regardless of environment or location. It can be downloaded on all iPhones and iTouches via the app store.
McFarland facilitates a local monthly operational fitness and fueling series (OFFS) class available to all service members. To sign up for a class or for more information call 471-2021.
