Real Changes Coming to Navy Fitness Regime? Or Just Internet Rumor?

Posted September 15, 2014 at 6:47am

Navy Times reports that “rumor has it that some big changes are coming to the Navy’s physical fitness assessment, but top officials say they’re just that — rumors.”  

“The scuttlebutt that hard-core changes were coming to the PFA has spread through the command fitness leader community since they were first posted on the online forum Reddit on Aug. 28.”  

The piece continues: “Those changes are not ‘soon to be released’ as new rules, as the anonymous Reddit post claimed, but neither are they groundless. The proposals were ginned up by command fitness leaders who were asked for ways to improve the PFA, Navy Times has confirmed.  

“The leaked proposals are a veritable wish list of what CFLs really want. But they have not been approved and are unlikely to be, said the chief of naval personnel’s senior enlisted adviser.”
