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 Preventive Health 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 five-day Command Fitness Leader Certification Course, which covers the administrative actions and duties of a CFL, basic exercise physiology and nutrition principles and basic PRIMS training, as well as intense, 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 United States Navy.

For more information on the CFL course please go to: or NKO select from Professional Development drop down CFL course.
