Q: Tell us about your background in fitness.

A: Since High School, I've found that working out makes me feel healthier, and really, that's why I work out. I am by no means a fitness guru. You won't find me running marathons, but I do enjoy going to the gym, running, and getting some fresh air.

Q: What was your previous fitness assessment score?

A: 100

Q: What did you do to prepare for the test?

A: The months leading up to the test, I try to incrementally run at a faster pace for the right distance--1.5 miles. The rest of the year, I do other cardio such as the rowing machine or biking.

Q: What was your nutrition like during this time?

A: Though life tries to challenge it, I try to stay away from fast foods and processed foods. Cereal for breakfast, a light lunch, and always a good, but healthy, dinner.

Q: In your opinion, how would you describe a balanced diet?

A: Your diet has to be balanced with your lifestyle. Eat good food, but don't eat more than you burn off, and don't let the ways your meals taste suffer.

Q: Any last words of advice?

A: Find a fitness routine that makes you feel better. Find one you would like to do even if you weren't being tested and enjoy its benefits. Increase your focus before the Air Force Fitness test in the areas the Air Force grades you on.
