A new smartphone app released by the Navy is getting rave reviews from sailors. The program is aimed at helping sailors stay in shape by providing them everything from workouts to meal plans. Just a short time since its release, it has already been downloaded by thousands of servicemembers, according to Military Times.
Known as the Navy Operational Fitness and Fueling Series, the app has enjoyed a positive response in its short time on the market. At the iTunes app store, for instance, it has a 4.5 out of 5 star rating. Perhaps the most appealing aspect is that users do not need internet access or cell phone service to access videos, since downloading the app stores these features on the phone.
"They like the food choice features and the fact that there are videos so they can refine their own movement efficiencies," Lisa Sexauer, program manager for fitness, sports and deployed forces support at Navy Installations Command, told the publication.
The fitness app is one of the latest such programs to make its way to the Armed Forces. In November, the Department of Defense released an app designed to provide wounded warriors and their families important information about everything from medical care to benefits.
