Capt. Ryan Shaver, 42nd Medical Group, scored 100 on his U.S. Air Force physical fitness assessment test. Airmen who score 100 at Maxwell Air Force base are members of "Club 100," and are highlighted for their achievement. Shaver runs, lifts weights and does push-ups every day to keep in top physical shape. The fitness test is composed of a 1.5 mile run, sit-ups, pushups and a waist measurement.

Club 100

Maxwell Air Base recognizes those members who earn a perfect 100 on their annual physical fitness assessment with a certificate or letter of recognition and their picture displayed in the base paper. Members who score a perfect 100 on their fitness test share their information about their fitness and nutrition background.

Q:What did that involve?
A:Taking the time, motivation and self-control.
Q:What was your nutrition like during this time?
A:Hard to say. I have good days and bad days. Generally I go for multiple smaller meals throughout the day instead of bigger meals to keep my metabolism up and energy at a constant level. My nutrition could use some improving.

Q:What other factors do you feel were important to your success?
A:Hard work. If you aren't completely dead after your "hard" days ... or you don't have hard days, then you are doing it wrong.
Q:Any last words of advice?
A:Run ... often.
