HUNDREDS of sailors and Royal Marines attended the first ever fitness festival at Royal Naval Air Station (RNAS) Yeovilton.
The NAVYfit festival in August was organised by Chief Petty Officer (CPO) and PT (Physical Trainer) Mark Feighery and proved extremely popular attracting over 500 personnel to try a multitude of sports and activities. CPO Feighery said:
“Navyfit was established by the Royal Navy to promote fitness, sporting and adventurous training among naval personnel. It’s the first time we here at RNAS Yeovilton have held such an event and although it has taken quite some organising to see so many participants is fantastic and makes it all worthwhile. Its vital we invigorate and promote a healthy and active lifestyle for military personnel.”
