A good mentor will give you the sound advice that you need to take care of yourself in regards to physical and mental health. If you aren't physically and mentally in shape, it makes taking care of your family members, fellow Airmen and pursuit of any personal goals difficult to accomplish.

A great mentor will get out of the office or shop, challenge you to do things, do these things for themselves and practice what they preach.

Senior Master Sgt. Florencio "Larry" Lopez, 22nd Air Force additional duty first sergeant, has been getting out of his office to maintain his physical fitness standards by attending a Fitness Boot Camp twice a week. His mentor, Master Sgt. Eric Jones, of the 94th Logistics Readiness Squadron, has shown up as well to challenge Lopez and other Airmen.
