RAF Return To Fitness Programme Phase 7
We are pushing towards the end of this tough phase now, so effective recovery methods are key in ensuring we are able to take on each session to our fullest potential. What we consume through nutrition plays a huge part in our bodies ability to repair, recover and grow in line with demands we place on it. This week, Defence Dietitian Ali Booker provides an excellent insight into the various foods that can assist you on this journey.
Do not forget to tap into the amazing resources available for mental health fitness too. These include websites such as HeadFit and apps such as Headspace – these options provide huge amounts of self-care opportunities at the cost of only a few minutes a day.
"The ongoing pandemic has presented many challenges and to coincide with the gradual easing of restrictions our RAF Physical Training Instructors have created a Return to Fitness Package to assist Regular and Reserve personnel to maintain their health, fitness and wellbeing. Based on a progressive programme of activities and including important nutritional advice, personnel will have access to information leaflets, videos and audio files for use at home, at the gym or outdoors."
