NOFFS - Navy Operational Fitness and Fueling System

Navy Operational Fitness and Fueling System is an evidence-based performance tool that addresses injury prevention by physically training operational job movement patterns. Rather than focusing specifically on the physical readiness test (PRT), NOFFS emphasizes how to specifically improve the functional performance of a Sailor during daily operations including lifting, pushing, pulling, carrying, aerobic/anaerobic demands, body movement skills with balance, agility and coordination.

Additionally, NOFFS provides foundational and performance nutrition guidance. The purpose of NOFFS is to meet the operational, physical and fueling demands of Sailors in order to remain ready for the missions of today's Navy. For more information, call (410) 293-9204
