Navy offers training apps


The U.S. Navy has launched three apps for physical training workouts as part of its Navy Operational Fitness and Fueling System (NOFFS) program. These high-intensity programs — the Strength, Endurance and Sandbag series — offer foundational exercises designed to replicate the activities sailors conduct in their operational duties: lifting, pushing, pulling and carrying. They also include nutritional guidelines.

The Strength Series develop the strength in three phases: Build Muscle, focused on improving the body’s capacity to handle greater physical demands. The second phase, Get Strong, focuses on building strength through fewer repetitions and higher intensity. The final phase, Get Powerful, harnesses the newfound strength and trains muscles to be fast and forceful.

The Endurance Series are designed break through training plateaus, while decreasing injuries often associated with traditional endurance training. The workouts can be accomplished in a number of ways, including running, biking, rowing, or using any cardiovascular machine.”


The Sandbag Series provides a training plan that can be performed in environments with limited equipment options.

Each series includes a fueling aspect to determine total caloric needs and a meal plan, and a regeneration component to assist with common aches and pains.

The apps are available at no cost for iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, or iPod), with Android devices being released shortly. Search for “NOFFS” in the App Store or on the Google Play Store app.
