WASHINGTON (AFNS) -- Air Force officials are launching a new family fitness program that encourages an active lifestyle for kids and adults, and serves as an outlet to promote health and wellness in Air Force families.

FitFamily, a companion to the highly successful youth fitness program, Fit Factor, begins Jan. 30, and will encourage families to "get up, get out and get fit--together."

"The FitFamily program is more than just logging points, monitoring progress and earning incentives. It's about families spending quality time together and setting goals with each other," said Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force James A. Roy, the Air Force's top enlisted Airman. "Developing and caring for Airmen and their families is a top priority. We must continue taking time to care for and honor our commitment to our families."

Air Force FitFamily focuses on the ABCs of family Health and Fitness to include participating in Activities, Building Healthy Habits and Counting your Progress.

"FitFamily is an important component of the overall Air Force fitness and health initiative and a visible part of the Year of the Air Force Family," said Condredge Fisher, program manager at the Air Force Services Agency. "The child and youth programs, and the adult fitness centers will work closely together to promote the program. They will partner together and schedule activities throughout the year and incorporate FitFamily activities into already existing Year of the Air Force Family events."

FitFamily is a goal incentive program that is open to all active duty, Reserve and Guard members, Department of Defense and civilian families, retired military members, honorably discharged veterans with 100 percent service-connected disability, and former or surviving military spouses and their family members.

To enroll in the program, families can log on to http://www.USAFFitFamily.com and click on "Register My Family." The system will send a password to each family member's e-mail. Additionally, the interactive FitFamily Web site also provides resources, ideas and goal setting tools to help Air Force families be active, make healthy nutrition choices and have fun in an effort to promote overall wellness.

For more information about FitFamily activities contact your local Youth Center or adult Fitness Center.
