Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hello I'm new to this, I've just recently passed my Psychometric tests and my eye test, and so I await my Fitness and medical.

    What I am unsure about is in the actual fitness test, how many chin ups does a woman have to do, (I have been getting mixed answers, some people saying I don't need to do any some saying that I do).

    Also, what during your medical could deem you unsuitable for the Royal Navy and so rejected?

    I'm going into CIS.

    Thanks x
  2. Many things.
  3. Thanks that narrowed it down :)

    Any help with chin ups, do I need to do them in my fitness test?
  4. Women dont need to do chin ups during the PJFT, you’ll only be required to complete a 2.4km run on a treadmill at a local fitness centre. This will need to be within the maximum time in the relevant category below.

    15-24 13min 15sec
    25-29 13min 50sec
    30-34 14min 28sec
    35-39 15min 09sec
  5. 13 minutes?!! You walk it?

  6. Thats about 6.5 mph for 1.5mile... so yes... it is a walk!
  7. I have my medical on tuesday! I have been told by numerous people who have already done the pjft and from research on here, i gather that all you do is the run.

    joining as MA :)
  8. I have my medical the 1st of feb, how did your go? :)
  9. I have to wait until I get results back from an op i am having next week and get further details on a medical issue before I can progress with my application!

    The PJFT times are horrendous, you would need to be severely unfit or crippled to not pass.

    There's no chin ups its just a run.

  11. Ahh well good luck !
  12. you might be a bit surprised to find out that the RN has the most demanding minimum 2.4k standards out of the USN, Canadian Navy and RAN.

    2.4k times for men under 25
    RN - 11:13
    USN - 13:30
    CN - 12:00
    RAN - 13:00

    And the big shocker for me was that the US navy SEAL minimum run time is 11min.

    Both males and females fitness standards are laughable.

    Yea I saw a few having to have a few goes at it on that mini-series about basic.

    Then when one bird eventually passed in something like 12:40 she said "it's surprising how fit they get you during basic"....
