“It should also be fun to keep fit and part of your everyday. Today’s event is encouraging participation in a variety of events including archery and cycling.

“We’ve introduced a little in-house healthy competition which all adds to the fun.”

The Unit Health Fair is a great way to increase awareness and motivate military personnel to make pro-active and positive changes to their lifestyle to promote health and ensure that they are medically fit for operations.

In line with the NAVYfit philosophy station wide personnel were encouraged to attend and the Commanding Officer, Commodore Nick Tindal was no exception as he hopped onto a bike encouraged by LPT Saunders.
