The USO of Hampton Roads and Central Virginia along with its Outdoor Adventure Team (OAT) is extremely excited to bring a revamped look into Fitness covering aspects of mind, body and soul. The goal is to eliminate brick walls when it comes to wellness for service members, wounded ill and injured as well as their families.

Our programs forward sight is expand our aperture and allow our lateral limits to reach out to all by bringing the OAT Pillars of Wellness, Sleep, Nutrition, and Resilience to reality. We strive to create a culture that will carry our military on to a healthier lifestyle path for our future generations of warfighters and their families. The Outdoor Adventure Team (OAT) is a peer-led recovery and resiliency program for active duty, wounded, ill & injured service members and their families.

Currently, our OAT home base is an indoor Wahoo Kickr Studio where bicycle resistance is controlled automatically to match each rider’s target power output for the ultimate personalized group workout. We also hold outdoor group rides when weather permits. Cycling is our flagship program; however, we are currently in the process of adding the following:

-Swimming (Indoor & Open Water)

-Indoor Rowing

-Kayaking

-Paddle Boarding

-Core Workouts

-Zumba

The possibilities are endless! Current participants include cyclists of all experience levels, tri-athletes, nutritionists, physical therapists, swimmers and runners. GEICO Military is our Major Sponsor for the Program as well as numerous others that make this a life-changing experience.

Meet John Ayo, USOHRCV staff, who is running our OAT program. John retired after 20 years of service in the United States Marine Corps. In 2017, John won the Gold Medal in Recumbent Cycling, (2) Silver Medals and (1) Bronze in Swimming at the Department of Defense Warrior Games in Chicago, Illinois.
