300 Club

#2
So far there has been 23 views of this topic and not one reply. That's probably because no one has heard of it. I certainly haven't or am I just being thick. What is the 300 club.

Edit. I've jut googled it and am none the wiser as why you should think that it would apply to the RN. There are lots of 300 Clubs' out there. Which one are you talking about.

It means you achieve the standard for 100 points in each part of your Fitness test. As a soon to be 30 year old, I need to do a mile and a half in less than 8.30ish, 80ish press ups and sit ups.

Any clubswingers out there who could help? I'm on leave, and anyway, the last time I asked for help at a gym the clubswinger looked at me in a v blank way....

Serious question - when did you start doing sit ups & press ups in the RNFT? I thought it was just the run.
Clearly worried now Jimbo. Perhaps taking that commiss wasn't sucha good idea after all...

That's their standard look. You should always check that they are carrying a blue clipboard - those that do are the ones that can talk.

Write?

No - we're talking about clubswingers.

The ones that make stewarding a spectacular career option.

Could it be a club in which members have received the maximum possible score of 300 points in the USMC PFT??

20 Pull ups, 100 crunches and sub 18 min 3 mile run.

Not telling you my score!!!

I'm pretty sure you will do a full fitness test on arrival at BRNC - sit-ups and press-ups included.

Best you get practicing; anyway, for someone of your age, getting 300 points is equal to a mile and half in under 15 minutes, resting on your middle aged spread for the press-ups and sitting up (slowly) for the sit-ups ;)

not bad for an old man....

Although disappointingly, they've changed the RNFT course at BRNC. You now get dizzy around the astroturf instead of a nice bimble through the grounds.

I currently run my BFT in around 9:45 (thats after the squadded 2.4 k in 15 mins) and don't have too much problem with the press ups / sit ups.

Bring on the RNFT when I start at BRNC :wink:
You ever try nicking my tot Jim and oh boy you better do better than that, and zig zag a lot. :D :wink:

I couldn't steal from an OAP mate, not in my make up :D :wink:
Good man, how about a donation to help the aged then?
See this is when they start going over the side :twisted:
