CFL Instructor Course

The mission of MWR’s trained Command Fitness 
Leader/Fitness Specialists is to provide future CFL’s 
and AFL’s with the tools, motivation and guidance 
needed to help their shipmates succeed physically and 
maintain overall good health.  This course is for military 
fitness leaders/instructors to become certified. You 
MUST submit a seat request via Navy portal, from a 
CAC reader enabled computer.

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.
