On Sunday, November 17, event participants can test their fitness levels against the standards required of soldiers who are or want to become Army divers. Exercises include swimming, sit-ups, pushups, pull-ups, and running, with new waves of exercisers every half-hour starting at 8 a.m. Prizes will be awarded to those who post the best scores. Proceeds benefit the Task Force Dagger Foundation, a nonprofit organization that raises funds for wounded and illness former Army special-operations personnel and their families.
Sgt. H2O's Aquatic Boot Camp
Trainer and fitness guru Justin Bradshaw modeled Sgt. H2O's Aquatic Boot Camp after the rigorous training he received as an Army diver. Each aquatic session tests fitness practitioners of all ability levels with moves designed to maximize lung capacity, boost swimming speed, and tone the entire body. Water adds extra resistance that amplifies the effects of exercise, and the pool’s gentle gravity proves easy on the joints. Exercisers tackle tasks such as pool sprints, towel swims, treading water with weights, bending submarines over one’s knee, and group exercise drills, as well as aquatic conditioning kicks. In Dallas, Sgt. H2O's personal training programs entitle trainees to attend complimentary boot-camp classes if they complete three hours of personal training per week. An online depository of nutritional advice helps students keep their weight-loss or healthy-living efforts on track.
