The Credit Union provided a number of items for the participants, including water, fruit, energy bars, water bottles and seat cushions.

The Alpha Warrior program is an Air Force-wide initiative to incorporate a functional fitness approach for Airmen. The Battle Rigs and Battle Stations provide them with a new and exciting way to work out, build unit cohesion and foster a sense of community with fellow Airmen. A practice rig was constructed on Joint Base Andrews for military personnel to practice on throughout 2018. Alpha Warrior Pro-Athletes were also on hand to demonstrate how to complete an obstacle course composed of several obstacles including a salmon ladder, three ring ropes and a rope climb.

“It was great to see such a fun, competitive spirit at this event,” said Rosalind Bishop, Regional Manager, Andrews FCU. “The Rigs and Stations truly test the endurance and stamina of the participants. We love and support our troops any chance we get.”
