Hi I want to join the navy I havnt applied yet because I don’t think I’m fit enough so am training everyday to get fit and am stopping smoking how fit should I be before joining any advice would be good and I’m quite a nervous person at the start is this a bad thing but I can’t stop thinking about joining I think it’s what I really want to do

Just continue to train and you will be fine, register some interest via the royal navy website as it will take a good few months to pass all the stages, by that time you will be fit enough. How fast can you run a 1.5 mile and what is your age? Under 12 minutes would be somewhere for you to aim for.

Use the on site SEARCH function. There's loads of advice in there. Good luck.

It’s lush, set in a semi rural location, lots to do there, kit musters, the odd gym session, a dip in the pool etc. It’s hard to believe but they pay you for being there, I felt guilty tbh for taking the money but it’s handy later in training for getting absolutely hammered in Torpoint. 10 weeks (less in my day blah) and it’s all over after a splendid passing out parade and a horse meat based mixed grill at The Carbielle Inn. Sign up, you’d be mad not to.

Try using punctuation, it will make your posts easier to read.

Just keep your running up, throw some sit ups in the mix get some press ups on the go and you will be on the way.

Hms Raleigh is fairly straight forward... Turn up fit and healthy, do some obstacle course, tickle a rope climb, eat some scran, wash, iron, iron, then wash, fold, wash, iron, iron, clean, then do some more running... Next thing you know 10 weeks is done and a baby nozzer is born.

Brush up on ones punctuation, the street lingo you type is difficult to read and daft to be fair.

Check the RN website out it gives you the insight to raleigh, check YouTube out, watch Navy school if you are bored, or use the search button on here.

Good luck with the application.
