Tip of the Week

Wondering how to get the most out of lifting weights? Use a weight that will have you failing on the set between the 30- and 40-second mark. This causes "time under tension" which in turn causes muscle to grow. If you’re failing at 20 seconds, you know that weight was too heavy.


PRIMS Update. 

Two fixes were released in PRIMS Production which should enhance user experience.

1.      ACFLs ability to gain members has been a sticking point for many. This fix will allow ACFLs to gain members PFA records they have responsibility over.

2.      BCA Step 2 error message, not allowing CFLs to continue past step 2 will now allow CFLs to be able to enter the remaining BCA information on members.  

-         This error was only happening to records where members were eligible for the PRT to be “Validated”.  The system is designed to auto-magically calculate when a person meets the criteria to be validated.  When Step-1 of the BCA is passed, and the member meets the criteria for validation, the PRT record would indicated “Validated” without the error. When a member did not meet height and weight standards, and Step-2 of the BCA was required for entry, the error would generate, resulting in an incomplete BCA.  The fix corrected the issue, allowing the entire BCA be entered.  

-         For members who meet the criteria to be “Validated” for the PRT in 2023, after the BCA is entered, the PRT will indicate “Validated” as designed. However, as outlined in NAVADMIN 251/22, there is no validation incentive for PFA Cycle 2023. CFL/ACFLs will need to edit the PRT date and change the participation status to “PARTICIPANT” and enter the member’s PRT scores for this cycle.

To comply with recent guidance on pregnancy notification policy change, the following will be added to the MyNavy Portal PARFQ landing page to provide guidance on how Sailors should answer Question #1 on pregnancy if they choose not to disclose their pregnancy status prior to 20 weeks.  By answering No to Question #1, the Sailor should then answer YES to either Question #3 or Question #5 which will require them to consult with a medical provider for appropriate guidance (e.g., medical waiver, light duty) as appropriate.  CFLs should continue to respect the medical privacy for all Sailors with medical waivers.

6 March 2023

Due to the recent name change from the Navy 21st Century Sailor Office to the Navy Culture and Force Resilience Office (NAVADMIN 059/23), the following Physical Readiness Program (PRP) Guides contained URLs which required modification:

Updated Approved Stationary Bike List for the Navy PFA

The “Life Fitness ASPC /SC Console Upright Bike” has been added to the approved list of stationary bikes for Navy PFA testing.  For testing set-up, follow the procedures in PRP Guide 5 for Stationary Bike (Life Fitness (Series)/Integrity Series Upright Bike).

February 17, 2023

The Physical Readiness Office has been receiving questions on the recent PFA Reset NAVADMIN 042/23.  Per the PFA Reset to Zero Fact Sheet that accompanied the NAVADMIN, this one-time reset to zero will not change any other records (like PRIMS, Fitness Reports or evaluations).

Command Fitness Leaders do not need to take any action to change any current records in PRIMS.  The PFA failure will remain documented in the Sailor’s PRIMS record.

This new policy does not change current Fitness Enhancement Program (FEP) policy and procedures.  Sailors are still required to participate in FEP until passing a mock PFA or the next official PFA.

If Command Fitness Leaders receive questions on reenlistment, advancement, FITREPS/Evals from Sailors regarding this NAVADMIN, they should refer them to their Command Career Counselor, Admin Department, or have the Sailor contact the MyNavy Career Center or 1-833-330-6622.

A new PFA 10 week notification sample later is available under the forms tab.  This new revision updates the reference documents.

With the release of OPNAVINST 6110.1K (22 April 2022) and the incorporation of previously released Physical Readiness Program (PRP) NAVADMINS, along with feedback from the Fleet, we have condensed the PRP Guides from 15 to 11. 
CFL/ACFLs are highly encouraged to thoroughly review each PRP Guide in its entirety, as several guides have been updated to provide clarity to the Fleet.  Although the guides are written primarily for CFL/ACFLs, all personnel may review the new PRP Guides to fully understand the policies of the Navy Physical Readiness Program.  The new 11 guides are listed below and can be found under the Guides tab to the left:
Guide 1:  PRP Policies
Guide 2:  Command PRP Checklists
Guide 3:  CFL/ACFL and Member’s Responsibilities
Guide 4:  Body Composition Assessment (BCA)
Guide 5:  Physical Readiness Test (PRT)
Guide 6:  PFA Medical Readiness
Guide 7:  PRIMS-2
Guide 8:  Managing PFA Records for Pregnant Sailors
Guide 9:  Command PT and FEP
Guide 10:  Nutrition Resources
Guide 11:  Conduct of the PFA in COVID-19 Conditions
With the 2023 PFA cycle approaching, commands are encouraged to include PRP Policy training topics (Medical Waivers, BCA Measurements, mock/official PRT, etc.) within their training schedules and prior to conducting their Official Command PFA Cycle, as prescribed in their 10-week notice.
As always, the PRP Staff is here to assist and we wish every Sailor a healthy successful 2023 PFA Cycle!

PRIMS-2 deployed a bundle of improvements into PRIMS-2 production. This will update the following in PRIMS-2:

1. Bike calculation update: We have corrected the offset values used in the Life Fitness INSC Upright Bike formula.  Please review your participants that used this bike in Cy 1/22 for any impacts, allow 48 hours for all records to be updated.

2. New approved Bike model added: We added the Life Fitness Model INC/SL Console Bike to both the official PRT Cardio options under BIKE, and to the FEP Cardio options under Bike. This new bike model will be available for testing as an approved bike in the next PFA cycle:

3. Moved the “Cardio Calories Expended” field in the FEP Cardio Row section to the BIKE section where it belongs (removed from Cardio Row section). Now you can input the bike calories in FEP and obtain results for the Bike performance and overall FEP PRT.

4. ACFLs ability to gain members: We added permissions to the ACFL roles to gain members PFA records into the command UICs.  ACFLs will now have the ability to gain member into the Core UIC and when the CFL has built Departments and Divisions, the ACFL will be able to place the PFA record directly into the Dept. and/or Div.

5. Swim Table updated: We made corrections to the Swim tables for both the official PRT Cardio section and the FEP Cardio section. Please review your participants in Cycle 1/22 that selected the Swim for any impacts. Allow 48 hours for all records to be updated.

December 13, 2022

PFA CYCLE 1 2023

This week marks the 10th week ahead of the Navy PFA cycle opening date (1Feb2023). PFA Cycle 1 2023 has been created and you will have access to it as of 1Feb2023.

If you are still in the process of entering Cycle 1 2022 PFA scores, be sure to select the correct cycle when adding PFA data.

November 18, 2022

Command Fitness Leaders must input all Calendar Year 2022 Physical Fitness Assessment data by 31 December 2022.   We understand that there have been issues with account creation and transferring of personnel for command rosters.  Since the beginning of October, we have detailed additional personnel from within the 21st Century Sailor Office to assist with PRIMS requests.   The average time to create an account is averaging about 7-10 days (if the SAAR-N form and account request are completed accurately).  This guidance replaces the previous deadline of 30 November in NAVADMIN 251/22.
We continue to update PRIMS-2 to better support CFLs.  The planned December release will include the following capabilities for CFLs:
- Ability for ACFLs to gain members to the command roster
- Auto population of weight to the bike cardio scoresheet
We appreciate the patience and hard work by CFLs and ACFLs.  As of 14 November, you have entered 267,025 BCA records and 246,420 PRT records.

November 7, 2022

NAVADMIN 251/22 released announcing a single Physical Fitness Assessment (PFA) Cycle for Calendar Year (CY) 2023.  The PFA cycle will be conducted from 1 February to 30 November 2023.

PRP Policy and PRIMS FAQs have been updated.
SAAR-N requests not properly completed (with errors) will be rejected, resulting in a complete resubmission.  Some of the common SAAR-N errors are missing the following information (blocks):  4-Phone, 10-IA Training Requirements, 11- Justification Access, 13-Unclassified, and 14-Verfication of Need to Know.
A complete step-by-step guide is located on the PRP Website on the right side under “PRIMS-2 – HOW TO:  CFL PRIMS Account Request (SAAR-N Process)”

September 30, 2022

Effective immediately, transfer request for Sailors from RTC Great Lakes UICs (30646 or 42125) will not be placed in a “transfer” status.  RTC Great Lakes is in the process of entering CY2022 PFA results, which requires the Sailor to remain assigned to their RTC Great Lakes UIC.  Once the recruits PFA data is uploaded in PRIMS, RTC Great Lakes will place the Sailor in a transfer status.  CFL/ACFLs should periodically check PRIMS to determine when the Sailor is in a transfer status in order to gain the member.

August 26, 2022


NEW PRIMS-2 DATA ENTRY DEADLINEThe Chief of Naval Personnel has extended  the time for CFL/ACFLs to enter Calendar Year 2022 PFA data into PRIMS-2 from 30 to 60 days after completion of the Navy PFA cycle.  The new deadline is 30 November 2022.  This provides relief to CFL/ACFLs who are learning our new PRIMS-2 system or may be experiencing account creation issues.

August 10, 2022

The new “CFL PRIMS ACCESS LETTER” is located under the FORMs section of this website.  CFLs requesting PRIMS access must use this format, on command letterhead and signed by the Commanding Officer, along with enclosures (1) and (2) of this letter in order to get PRIMS access.
