  • 4th FSS FAC keeps Airmen fit to fight

    The 4th Force Support Squadron fitness assessment cell is busier than ever since the resumption of fitness assessments. “The FAC manages the FAs for the base and makes sure all Airmen take their physical health seriously,” said Senior Airman Elijah Champion, 4th FSS FAC technician. The current FA consists of a 1.5-mile run, and a minute each for push-ups and sit-ups. Alternative components will begin in early 2022. Airmen will have five physical FA alternatives, two for the cardio portion and three for the sit-up and push-up components. “If we are truly going to get after building a culture that embraces fitness as a lifestyle, then we have to grow beyond the mentality of a one-size-fits-all PT test,” said Chief Master Sgt. JoAnne S. Bass. “Providing our Airmen with these options is a step in the right direction toward developing an Air Force that is fit to fight, anytime, anywhere.”
