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 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 five-day
Command Fitness Leader Certification Course. 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 United States Navy. Learn the
administrative actions and duties of a CFL, basic exercise
physiology and nutrition principles, basic PRIMS training, while
completing intense, daily gym sessions teaching
various methods for exercise programming.
Navy Fitness has partnered with OPNAV135, 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.
This MWR event is only open to active duty personnel who are
command fitness leaders.
