JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD, Wash.  -- After three months of construction, the McChord Field Fitness Assessment Cell is open for business.

The FAC, formerly located near building 552 behind the Airman and Family Readiness Center, has been re-located next to the track on Battery Road.

According to Senior Master Sgt. Cleofas Trejo, 627th Force Support Squadron service sustainment flight superintendent, the new location offers a more convenient physical fitness testing process. 

"The building right beside the track serves as a one-stop shop for our fitness testing," said Sergeant Trejo. "Airmen have their height and weight measured in the building, and then we step right outside for the sit-up, push-up and 1.5 mile run portion of the test. Everything we need is provided in one easy location."

The building, essentially a triple-wide trailer, was broken down into three separate pieces, transported one mile down Barnes Blvd. onto Battery Road and then re-assembled at the new location. 

"It's literally the same building," said Sergeant Trejo. "We just took it apart, moved it and put it back together. Everything is coming along very well. I'm proud to say it was a successful project."

The FAC temporarily operated out of the McChord Field Fitness Annex during construction. As of April 11, the facility has resumed the normal testing cycle of 3 times a day, five days a week, at the new location. The FAC conducts physical fitness tests for Active Duty Airmen and Reservists during Unit Training Assembly weekends. 

"The move was a huge collaboration between contractors, the force support squadron, civil engineering squadron and communications squadrons, the Department of Public Works and pretty much anyone else willing to help out," said Sergeant Trejo. "We had tons of support."

To schedule a fitness test, contact your Unit Fitness Program Manager. To contact the FAC directly, call (253) 982 - 0524.
