I have searched and I have found different times!

On the RN page it says that females 25+ have 13.50min but I came across a post on here whilst looking for something else that said the times had been reduced and it was now 13.37min.

I'm at my AFCO next week so I'll find out for definite then but I just thought I'd ask :)

Go on the the RN website and look on there.


Just the thoughts of a blonde ex-wren. Don't blame me if it all goes tits up.

The pre-joining fitness programme in the pdf on the RN website is now correct.

The female press-ups are incorrect though, it's full press-ups, same as the 'blerks'.

PJFT run times are as follows, as indicated in exJ's post:

MALE

15 – 24 11 min 09 secs

25 – 29 11 min 33 secs

30 – 34 11 min 58 secs

35 – 39 12 min 23 secs


FEMALE

15 – 24 13 min 10 secs

25 – 29 13 min 37 secs

30 – 34 14 min 05 secs

35 – 39 14 min 33 secs

Why is it that females aged 15-24 that should be in the prime of their fitness get 47 seconds longer than males aged 35-39? Regardless of whether males have more testosterone and all those arguments surely they should be fitter than males 20 years their senior? Not to mention the fact they need to be able to do the same job if indeed it is required.

For those wishing to join the Diver branch or undergo the All Arms Commando Course the fitness standards are identical, regardless of gender.

The entry standards are set by the Institute of Naval Medicine, so far as I'm aware. I've frequently seen females surpass the entry fitness standards for Males but at the same time, Females & Males seldom compete in mixed gender athletics and have no doubt there will be a fairly robust logic behind the standards for entry based on age and gender.

In my opinion female sailors are ALWAYS fitter than male sailors....................................Perhaps it's cos I is heterosexual:D
