Efficient Running is a 3 module multi-media and interactive course designed to teach all military members and civilians to be healthier and better runners. Running is a critical component in the USAF Fitness Assessment as well as an excellent activity for overall health. We hope to integrate this into the education of all military members preparing for their Fitness Assessment (FA). More specifically the modules could be used as a directed tool for those having difficulty with the FA. Here is an outline of the course. The full course is about 60 minutes.
