Body Mass Index (BMI)

This morning started off with me PT testing an individual for his annual AF PT exam (which went well). Then I was off to have my BMI checked via a BOD Pod. Hickam AFB as a state of the art facility that combines a Health and Wellness Center with Physical Therapy otherwise known as H-PARC (Human Performance and Rehabilitation Center. Thanks to the outstanding support of the Exercise Physiologist (Mr. Jason) and the Registered Dietitian (Ms. Amanda) they have provide unbelievable guidance on injury prevention and proper nutrition. Here is how I transformed my body over the last 15 months and reduced my body fat by 18%.
