MISAWA AB – Need some Monday motivation? Airmen and military families at Misawa can put in some work as a military community during live BE FIT workouts on the Exchange’s Facebook page at 1 a.m. each Tuesday.

BE FIT ambassadors Roy Montez and Air Force Senior Master Sgt. Sonja Berry host 20-minute workouts on Facebook at 11 a.m. CST every Monday. In addition, Soldiers, Airmen, retirees, Veterans and military family members can watch the series on the Exchange Facebook page.

The live workouts, which include interval training, core workouts, strength exercises and more, grew out of a desire to promote wellness during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“These BE FIT workouts remind Misawa Airmen that staying fit is critical—especially during the pandemic,” said Misawa Exchange General Manager Kristine Cowley. “Joining the Exchange workouts through Facebook fosters a sense of community and resiliency.”

Each video begins with a short introduction, then Montez describes each exercise before he and Berry lead viewers on stretching. During the workout, Montez pauses to rest, provides advice and answers questions from the online audience.

“It’s like having a free trainer,” said Berry, the Exchange’s assistant director for public health and food safety. “It demonstrates the Exchange’s commitment to fitness and healthy lifestyles.”

The Exchange’s BE FIT initiative highlights better-for-you dining grab-and-go options and provides an assortment of fitness gear and wellness services. The program empowers military customers, their families and the broader military community to make healthy lifestyle choices.

The community is encouraged to follow the Misawa Exchange’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/MisawaExchange/ For more BE FIT choices, visit the Exchange’s community Hub.
