Command Fitness Leaders (CFLs) play an integral part in the overall fitness and readiness of Sailors. CFLs are not only responsible for conducting the bi-annual Physical Fitness Assessment (PFA) for their commands, but also provide exercise programming and guidance throughout the year to ensure the members of their command maintain physical readiness. All CFLs must be trained and certified through the 5-day CFL certification course, which covers the administrative actions and duties of a CFL, basic exercise physiology and nutrition principles, basic PRIMS training, and daily gym sessions teaching various methods for exercise programming. Upon the conclusion of this course, CFLs will have the skills, education, and motivation to lead the way in establishing and maintaining a culture of fitness for their command and the U.S. Navy.
In our commitment to the CFLs, Navy Fitness has partnered with OPNAV N17, Physical Readiness Program (PRP), for the administration and execution of the Command Fitness Leader Certification Course. Currently, there are more than 140 trained CFL instructors who conduct the CFL certification course at installations worldwide, with more than 100 classes offered annually.
