GOODFELLOW AIR FORCE BASE, Texas -- Senior NCOs from Goodfellow Air Force Base took part in the first ever Goodfellow Top 3 PT session Tuesday at the Mathis Fitness Center.

"It's important for us to continue to transform our culture regarding fitness. It is essentially just as important as your job; therefore, Senior NCOs should be among those who are leading the way in this transformation," said Master Sgt. Theresa Meyer, president of the Goodfellow Top 3.

The program is designed to promote the Air Force's "Fit to Fight" concept by allowing Goodfellow Air Force Base's senior NCOs the opportunity to do physical training and set a good example for the junior enlisted members about the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

It was Master Sgt. Meyer's idea to start the program.

"I was trying to think of ways for the Top 3 to establish a more significant presence within the wing, so I ran the idea past the command chief and a few other people. Everyone was very positive about it," Master Sgt. Meyer said.

"Being 'Fit to Fight' doesn't just mean being able to pass the PT test; we have to take it a step further and promote healthier lifestyles. If senior NCOs are doing it, there should be no reason for others not to follow," Master Sgt. Meyer added.

The next Top 3 PT session is scheduled for sometime in April.

Other senior NCOs interested in participating can contact one of the following Top 3 council members listed below form more information.

Top 3 council members are Master Sgt. Ben Miranda, Master Sgt. Nathaniel Schmidt, Master Sgt. Robin Bavin, Master Sgt. (select) Jan Menard and Master Sgt. Roberta
