The Marine Corps' first Force Fitness Instructor (FFI) Course recently began at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia. The new course is designed to help Marines understand fitness in a better way. The students learn about the seven foundational movements of fitness, which are pull, push, hinge, plank, lunge, squat and rotate. These movements are practiced throughout the course. The students also learn the fundamentals of injury prevention measures. The ultimate goal of the program is to send these future FFIs back to the small-unit level to have the most impact. For more information, contact POC/GYSGT William J. Callen, Operations Chief, Marshall Arts Instructor School of Excellence, telephone: 703-432-6470/6471.
