Senior Chief Logistics Specialist Norma Porter, the recipients of the U.S. Navy Senior Enlisted Academy (SEA) Peter Tomich Distinguished Leadership Award delivers a speech at the SEA Class 254 graduation Sept. 1.

Our physical fitness program begins at a low intensity and progresses to a fairly rigorous routine over a period of time. It is designed to safely enhance student physical readiness.

While in Newport, students are required to perform physical training (PT). PT sessions will include, but are not limited to Tabata, cross-fit, circuit training, yoga, spin class, team sports, and various other types of group PT. Additionally, the Byers’ cup and infamous six-mile Wave run are required events. Although, students will not be required to complete the six miles the SEA encourages every student to push themselves and step out of their comfort zone. If students are not fit for full duty or able to perform all aspects of PT, they must provide a light/limited duty chit on day one specifically stating their duty status and limitations. If a light/limited duty chit is not provided, students will be required to perform all aspects of PT. All personnel reporting to the Academy must be within Navy body composition standards and physical fitness standards.

Note: We will run outdoors as long as the wind-chill factor is above 32 degrees Fahrenheit.
