The course is open to Marines and Sailors E-4 and above, with a first class PFT, CFT, or PRT. After attending the course, Marines and Sailors may lead HITT workouts for their unit, as well as utilize the HITT lockers/equipment. The course can provide a solid foundation for Marines who wish to later become their unit’s Force Fitness Instructor (FFI).
