3 Steps to take now if you Failed the Navy PRT 

3 Steps to take now if you Failed the Navy PRT 

  1.  Convince your command you are serious about staying in the Navy. This is the most critical step you can take. In the days after your PFA failure your command will be looking hard at your performance and your self.

  2. Convince yourself that you are serious about getting in shape. Convincing yourself that you are serious about getting in shape is even harder than convincing others. While it may be easy to fake it to others, you can’t fake it to yourself. This is an area where I can help. I offer fitness coaching, and guarantee that you will pass your next PFAs. My rates are the cheapest you will find anywhere and so far none of my clients have failed the PFA. If you pay today we can start working together tomorrow.   Contact me Today.

  3. Recognize that if you fail the next Navy fitness test that you will be processed for administrative separation. As NAVADMIN 178-15 “ A sailor who fails two PFA cycles in the latest three year period shall be processed for administrative separation.” This is very clear guidance for any PFA failure and unlike in the past there is not a process for commands to submit waivers. Therefore; if you fail one PFA you need to pass the next SIX PFAs if you hope to keep your job in the Navy.

If you are serious about passing your next PFA and serious about staying the Navy reach out to me for Coaching today.

  • People are no longer adsep’ed and this changed a few years ago.

  • What are the courses of action I can take if my Command Denies a Bad Day chit?

    Background: I recently checked into a training command in Virginia. I had spent the last 7 years in tropical environments. Upon checking into the schoolhouse we were informed that we would participate in a PFA within a week of starting our classes. The day of the PFA the temp was 50 degrees and there was a strong breeze. I missed my run time by 16 seconds. I requested a bad day chit. The chit was denied by the command with a note from the CO stating, “failure to prep for PRT is not in the spirit of the bad day policy.” I had a failure 2 years ago and this would have a major impact on my career. Is there any way I can appeal the denied chit? I feel like denying a Sailor an opportunity to take bad day chit shows bad leadership.

  • I have a Sailor that failed the PRT and was authorized a Bad Day. However, changes in the ship schedule has the member on an underway but the expectation from the CFL is for the member to conduct it during that time. Is there guidance at all about taking the PRT on a ship to include plank, pushups and alternate cardio? How is that sat knowing the member initially took it on base but with the projected retake to take it on a deployment have factors out of the member’s control with ship’s movement etc?
