66 installations to receive virtual fitness kiosks

To help improve total force fitness levels, the Air Force is installing “Fitness on Request” kiosks at 66 locations by the end of September, Air Force Personnel Center officials said. Part of the Operational Fitness Program, the kiosks are available to all Airmen, including retirees and family members, at base fitness and sports centers.

“The goal of this program is to encourage Airmen to live healthy lifestyles and provide alternative avenues to staying fit,” said Scott Nunnelly, the AFPC fitness program manager. “The ‘Fitness on Request’ kiosks allow many individuals to come together and participate in group exercise without the need of a live instructor.”

The fitness kiosks enable fitness staff or customers to schedule group exercise classes during which exercise videos will play on a large screen. Each “Fitness on Request” kiosk comes with 30 preloaded workout videos, which will be updated quarterly.

Workout routines include kinetics, technical knockout kickboxing, step aerobics, cycling and fusion, which will run for 20-, 30-, 45- and 60-minute increments. Each installation will determine how its kiosk will be scheduled for workout sessions.

Although designed for groups, classes are also set up to allow individuals to follow at their own level. Videos feature a virtual instructor and two assistants who perform the exercise routines at different skill levels.
