Physical fitness becomes key focus for a Guardsman

Physical fitness becomes key focus for a Guardsman

August 11th, 2012 by Sgt. Sarah E. Lupescu in News

Staying physically fit is a priority throughout the military ranks. For Guardsmen, staying fit can sometimes be a challenge.

Soldiers and airmen have to balance civilian jobs, families, school and military obligations while still making time for regular workouts. One Missouri Guardsman has found a workout routine that works for him and his schedule.

Sgt. Dustin Surrell, a supply clerk for the Special Troops Battalion at the Ike Skelton Training Site, works out four to seven days a week. His reasoning for doing a regular workout is quite simple.
