About this app

An Official US Navy mobile application, produced by the Navy PMW 240 Program.

The Official Navy PFA (Physical Fitness Assessment) app provides Sailors with all the Physical Readiness Program information they need to maintain optimal health, fitness, and readiness according to Navy standards. The app offers current guidance regarding all aspects of the Navy’s Physical Readiness Program, including information on appropriate nutrition, health, fitness, aerobic capacity, muscular strength, muscular endurance, body fat composition, and the new plank and rower modalities.

The app provides a one-stop shop for all Physical Readiness Program information. Among other features, this app includes the following:
• Program Application Resources, such as a “How to” video library (3-step body composition assessment measurement videos, physical readiness test event videos, and other products), as well as instructions and operating guides based on the OPNAVINST 6110.1 series and associated NAVADMINS.
• Nutrition Resources, including the Naval Operational Fitness and Fueling System (NOFFS) Virtual Meal Builder.
• Command Physical Training (PT) and Fitness Enhancement Program (FEP) Source Information, including an instructor directed Navy Operational Fitness and Fueling Series (NOFFS) library of 75+ approved Command PT and FEP-specific workouts. The app also features the recognized Navy mobile PFA CALCULATOR that combines the capabilities of all calculators found in the Official Navy PRIMS (Physical Readiness Information Management System) Program

The Navy’s Physical Readiness Program policy establishes requirements to ensure both Active and Reserve personnel maintain the level of physical fitness required to support overall mission readiness. The Official Navy PFA app enables Sailors to confidently prepare to meet these standards as they strive to achieve consistent physical fitness.

The app is comprehensive, easy to use, and offers public content only -- no authentication/authorization required. Download yours today!

Slow. It's faster to look up official numbers online. Sliders are pointless. It is faster to type the numbers. Removing the sliders would clear up the interface. Several resources require connectivity, making it useless underway. Selecting Downloadable Content consistently crashes the application. The biggest problem is the app is painfully slow to load everything, especially when "everything" boils down to about a dozen PDFs and a bad ui over what should be a very simple calculator.

Great reference with a quick learning curve. I would like to see the ability to save a profile so it automatically inputs my age and gender and maybe a more pronounced gender selection tab - everyone in my unit downloaded the app for this weekend's PFA and the females had issues because it would revert to "Male" everytime they went in to the calculator. Overall a great tool.

It used to work several months ago. Now it literally does not work at all. The app has to download data on a Disclaimer screen, and it only ever reaches 50% complete before returning a bad data error and closing down. I have tried multiple times through both mobile data and wi-fi.
