Occasion for Wear
The Fitness Suit is designed primarily for group/unit physical training activities and the semi-annual physical readiness test to facilitate exercises associated with standing, running and on non-abrasive surfaces. The occasion for wear of the Fitness Suit is as follows:
(1) In-Port. The Fitness Suit may be worn optionally or as prescribed by the commanding officer when performing unit/command physical training. The Fitness Suit may also be worn during individual physical fitness activities and while on liberty (refer to paragraph (3) below).
(2) At Sea. The wearing of the Fitness Suit and PTU components will be at the discretion of the commanding officer.
(3) After Normal Working Hours and During Liberty. The Fitness Suit may be worn both on and off base for individual fitness-related activities and liberty unless determined otherwise by the regional commander or commanding officer. When worn during personal fitness activities and while on liberty, individual components of the Fitness Suit and PTU may be worn at the discretion of the Sailor.
(4) Wear Restrictions and Allowances. The Fitness Suit is not authorized to be worn while in a duty status or when conducting official business on base (e.g. Personnel Support Detachments, medical, dental, legal, etc.), in lieu of the uniform of the day, when working, nor while in a limited or light duty status requiring the wear of a uniform. Pregnant
Sailors may wear the Fitness Suit and PTU components unless they become uncomfortable or too tight. In all cases, the Fitness Suit will be worn in such a manner as to reflect credit upon the Navy and the Sailor wearing it.
