May is guaranteed to be another Amazing FMMP session! We have the pleasure of having one of our Army’s Social Media “Sheroes” who has become an internet sensation for her efforts in virtual mentorship to the masses! We will have SFC Latoya Greene on our next session scheduled for Thursday, 23 May, from 1800-1930 (EST) on Zoom. SFC Greene is not only a phenomenal Soldier, Leader, and Mentor, but she is also a “Change Agent” for the Army and a Social Media Influencer. SFC Greene was recently inducted into the Army Woman’s Foundation Hall of Fame, receiving the Champion’s Award for her work in leading the Army to change how they determine Body Mass Index (BMI) for Soldiers, especially women. Her efforts led to the Army publishing Army Directive 2023-11, announcing the new way the Army determines BMI.
SFC Greene also made a name for herself outside of the Army, by winning several powerlifting competitions and for earning the title of “Strongest Woman” on Fort Cavasos. She used her Social Media platform to provide mentorship through her Army “Motivation Monday” videos, building a network of over 900K followers who tune in, weekly, to hear her guidance and recommendations on how to navigate through the Army and life in general. Finally, SFC Greene has been a Certified Personal Fitness Trainer for 7 years and has created her own Fitness Program and Pre-Workout that can be found on her website titled Fitness With Toya – Link to site: (Fitness With Toya (fitwithtoya.com)). With this site, she is committed to helping Soldiers and civilians meet their physical fitness goals while building confidence and motivation to help people reach their full potential.
Join us on Thursday evening, to hear the great advice of one of the Army’s most dedicated NCOs who has devoted her career to helping shape the lives of our Soldiers, Civilians, and the Army as a whole.
