Seth Vernon Vande Kamp. The 31-year-old from Katy, Texas served as a Family Medicine Resident at BMACH, until he pcs’d in August. As one of the Army’s newest physicians, he touched the lives of many patients here at Fort Benning. Vande Kamp was among seven Soldiers killed in a Black Hawk helicopter crash while on a routine peacekeeping mission in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula on November 12.Vande Kamp graduated BMACH’s Family Medicine Residency Program, in June. As a member of the 48th class, the Texas native is remembered as a team player and being genuinely kind and enjoyable to be around.“Not only was he one of the best ultimate Frisbee players that we had,” shared faculty member Maj. Mary Noel. “He was a committed physician to his patients, and led the inpatient medicine and obstetric teams well.”Fellow resident Capt. S. Ivan Bartlett recalled how his friend was well known for his ability to fall asleep just about anywhere, in seemingly the most uncomfortable positions. “While doing morning rounds on the inpatient medicine service with Seth as one of the team leads, I was presenting a patient and he somehow managed to fall asleep in the middle of the conversation.”All joking aside, Bartlett praised Vande Kamp for being a great listener who did not cast judgment. “He probably wouldn’t admit it, but he was truly a good teacher. I think he had a secret passion for obstetric care, because he always seemed to have the answer on our labor and delivery service.”Colleague Capt. Matthew Stewart agreed, “Seth always knew what to do in any (labor and delivery) situation. His heart rate never seemed to increase… he was always calm and collected.”If you ever wanted to know where and when you could swim indoors on post, Vande Kamp was the one to ask, said Stewart. “His preferred method of exercise was swimming. Even though atypical in the Army that is how he would train for cardio for APFTs.”Vande Kamp, who also had a passion for hiking and long range weaponry, was on his first overseas assignment as an Army doctor. He arrived in Egypt in October and was assigned to the Task Force Sinai medical company.The Multinational Forces and Observers said the UH-60 Black Hawk crashed during a routine mission near the Red Sea resort city of Sharm el-Sheikh. The MFO monitors compliance with the four-decade-old peace agreement between Israel and Egypt. Thirteen countries contribute troops to the MFO. The U.S. Army task force of about 450 active duty, reserve and National Guard troops make up the largest contingent.Our thoughts are with the families, friends and loved ones of all those affected by this tragic loss.

This Fitness App Is Tiding Me Over Until My Beloved Studios Are Open Again

Prior to the pandemic, I was a workout class fiend. I jumped from studio to studio, trying out hot yoga, Muay Thai kickboxing, cycling, and boot camp classes to my heart’s content. And although some gyms and studios are reopening, I’m just not ready to go back. Now, instead of popping into group fitness classes, I usually head outside for a run or stream a workout class in my living room. I’ve experimented with my fair share of workout apps over the last several months, but none offer as much variety and easy streaming capabilities for an affordable price as NEOU.

The app offers live streaming and on-demand workout classes for all fitness levels. You can follow guided programs, set goals, and track your progress for a highly personalized experience or simply pick classes to try out based on your interests or how much time you have to squeeze in a sweat. You can filter classes by duration, body-area focus, and equipment to easily find one that’s right for you.

When I first downloaded the app, I was shocked by the sheer number of classes available. There are thousands of classes and trainers span 26 different fitness modalities. Think high-energy dance classes, technical barre routines, and strengthening yoga flows. It’s like having access to hundreds of studios no matter where you’re working out.

I took a zero-equipment boxing class that left me red-faced and dripping with sweat in just 30 minutes, a quick and efficient core workout that fired up my abdominal muscles, and a yoga class to open up my shoulders all in one week for a fun mash-up fitness schedule. Switching up my workout routine with such varied classes reminded me of my former studio hopping days, and I’m so glad I found an app to tide me over until I can return to my favorite classes IRL.

The app is compatible with Fire TV, Apple TV, Roku, and Xbox, so not only can I follow a workout on my smartphone or laptop, but I can also stream classes on my TV. And watching an instructor on a bigger screen makes all the difference. Plus, you can stream from up to two devices at the same time and download classes to watch even if you don’t have service or wifi.

Visiting hundreds of fitness studios in person would cost a small fortune, but you can download the NEOU workout app for free from the Apple App Store or on Google Play, and enjoy a 30-day free trial to make sure it’s a fit for your lifestyle. If you decide to commit, prices for a monthly membership begin at $8.
