    When I was in the Army we worked out every morning as a group. Do any Coast Guard units do this or is everyone responsible for staying in shape on their own?

    Once in a while at a MSST team, you will do organized PT, but it's not the same. We might play basketball or volleyball for that. Most of the time, physical fitness is a personal responsibility.

    I was wondering about this because I had read some posts by people that said they had a problem gaining weight while out to sea and I was wondering, how is everybody staying in shape.

    Out at sea is a whole different animal. Working out while the ship is pitching and rolling is extremely difficult. Eating right while underway is essential if you are close to your weight limit.

    thats unfortunately the problem though. i eat absolutely healthy and wonderful in port, and work out like a maniac. when we get underway, the downtime sets in, and we end up snacking and snacking and snacking and watching movies and being lazy sailors when our workday is over..............
    its a vicious cycle


    Gravity brings me down....

    Our unit works out Tues, Thurs, and Friday is a sports day while we aren't underway.

    I had to lay off the nerd ropes, brownies, cake, and soda this patrol. I've actually been doing very well and getting some working out in since its only 2 footers out, with ...oh wait a 2 pound wait gain lol.

    We are headed to drydock, all the guys are saying how they gained 20 pounds from it so we'll see.
