Those foolish enough to arrive at HMS Raleigh overweight can expect to be under threat of discharge under the 56 day rule. If they also fail to pass the RN Fitness Test or Military Swimming Test, in addition to being overweight, they're history.

This is a current hot issue & it frankly beggars belief that anyone could possibly think it's OK to arrive overweight.

Welcome to Rum Ration!

If I may ask, how much do you weigh as of today and how tall are you?

Only yesterday on my way out of the gate there were 3 phase 1 (ex) who were leaving - one because he had failed to pass his pjft. Sad innit'.

I have to run mine again in Faslane this week - fortunately i'm as svelt as the day i joined, I'm just holding a little water today.

For a sensible answer to OP. It means you are overweight on the BMI scale. As 25 is the upper score for healthy weight. Of course there are people with high muscle mass who are over 25 on the BMI as muscle weighs more than adipose tissue.

BMI isnt exceptionally accurate but it is a useful guideline and in combination with other testing methods can give you a good idea of where you are at in a training programme.

As to how your BMI will affect you when ya get to raleigh, Im sure Ninja Stoker, Super Mario or maybe even Angry Doc will have a far more in depth, official answer for you as they are the recruiting/med people etc
