Evening all, this is my first post here, so you'll have to bear with my newbieness (I think I just invented a new word!). So, just to fill you gents in on my background before I fire my barrage of questions: I'm currently a 21 year old Electrician Driver in the TA (Basically the guy who repairs the generators and rewires everything when the kettle/TV breaks down in the field). My nautical experience basically amounts to taking the ferry to Ireland! Anyways, I am seriously considering joining the Navy full time as an Engineering Technician (Marine Engineering). I was just wondering what kind of fitness standards there are in the Navy. The Navy's recruitment website seems to take a wide berth (no pun intended :roll: ) around the subject of fitness, so I thought it best to ask here. The only time the website refers to ANY physical training at all is, "During the selection process you will also have to do a fitness test in which you have to complete a 2.4km run within a set time." I presume this is the same as the Army's physical test in which you have to do the 2.4km(1.5mi) in ten minutes, then a shedload of pushups and situps, right? I wouldn't imagine the Navy has to perform loaded marches and assault courses, or am I wrong on this? Applicants are advised to do some phyical training before arriving at phase one training, so I would presume you get a beasting during training? Apologies for the rambling nature of my questions, but I was just wanted to know the facts about physical training in the Navy, as I was concerned by the fact the recruitment website seems to try and avoid mentioning this subject. I am not particularly fit (although I manage to meet TA standards) and I dislike PT. In fact, I am of the opinion that the devil is a PTI. :lol: Thanks in advance for any replies!
