The hardest part is it all mate it designed to drain you before you’ve even started but bear with it it doesn’t last forever the hardest part for me was the actual exercises with the stretcher running around with it and up and down the hill it’s horrible and awkward to hold which makes it worse but you’ll be fine just show 100% mate

Brilliant, thanks a lot mate. Two more questions:
1 - at what point into phase 1 do you get your uniform? I'm joining tomorrow at Raleigh and they said you'll need to bring smart casual for the following days.
2 - what do they specify by "smart casual"? Smart jeans, shoes, shirt etc.?
Cheers again

Hey, unsure as to whether I'm supposed to bring the boots I received at prnc to raleigh or not (they are brown) as they're not on the kit list. Cheers

@Ollie_L you don’t need to be a machine but need to have a good body weight strength and overall running fitness. I was a quite fat before I can here and have lost a lot of weight whilst being here but the imf syllabus which is the fitness you do is a gradual build of your fitness so by pass out you’ll be significantly fitter so just make sure you can bang press ups and sit ups out well and your run time is good and you’ll be fine. Also the messes are all mixed age ranging from 16-30 so there is a good mixture and it’s good to have that as there are different personalities all coming together. Hope that helps mate.

@Mr_Gillette bring some baby wipes for boots and also kiwi foam polish for the under soles it’s amazing for the boots it’s like gold at Raleigh apart from that that’s really it everything else is decent enough and remember your pens as we’ll for kit marking so your white and black pens.
