FORT RUCKER, AL (WSFA) -

Soldiers had some fun while also getting in shape at Fort Rucker's annual Fit Fest event Friday. They were able to learn about ways to live a healthy life.

There were several fitness activities to prove their strength and readiness to fight for our country, including burpees, planking and "drunk football," which participants played while wearing goggles that impair the wearers' vision as if they are intoxicated.

Attendees were able to stop by the "beer goggles" table to learn more about the effects of alcohol, dangers of drinking and driving, binge drinking and how much alcohol a human body can handle according to weight.

The winner in the planking competition won a fit bit watch. 

"I'm setting an example for my soldiers. They were in there too so I'm just showing them that I can keep going. I'm getting older so it gets harder," said Mkadaquet Genereaus, the planking competition winner.

There was also a wellness table, where attendees could learn about dietary recommendations. A physical therapist was there to assess chiropractic care. There were pharmacy representatives discussing medications and changes with TRICARE.

This annual event is for soldiers, their families and retired military.
