8/20/2013 - WASHINGTON (AFNS) --  -- The BE WELL program, an Air Force-wide program designed to provide Airmen and leadership with resources to optimize fitness and health, now offers more choices and increased flexibility, thanks to a revamp that went into effect July 1.

The Balanced Eating, Work Out Effectively, Living Longer, or BE WELL program, was redesigned based on input from Airmen, leadership and Air Force health promotion professionals.

The result is a fully customizable program structured to offer effective, targeted solutions in the areas of fitness, nutrition education, and dietary supplement safety, according to Air Force Health Promotion (AFHP) officials at the Air Force Medical Operations Agency, Joint Base San Antonio, Texas.

The new program offers access to a full suite of options, including a comprehensive online class, telephonic health coaching through Military One Source, in-person classes on weight management with a fitness component, and instructor-led workshops on cardiovascular and strength training.

Options in the new BE WELL program will remain open to all Airmen and their families, and the program will continue to be mandatory for those with unsatisfactory fitness scores. Members with unsatisfactory scores will collaborate with their unit fitness program manager and their commander to choose the one or more options that will best help them meet their fitness goals, said Lt. Col. Trisha Vorachek, Air Force Health Promotion chief.

Leadership teams can request information and support from their installation Air Force health promotion professionals or contact Kelly Williams, Air Force Medical Support Agency health promotion program manager at DSN 761-7382.
