    Got my regiment fitness test comin up and just want to know what minimum requirements are.

    Got told by a recruiter that someone recently did a 9.30min run, 40 press ups in a min and 40 sit ups and didn't pass.

    This was a massive shock as I have thought, up to now, its 10.30min and about 20 of each.

    My question is, is the information he's given me correct or is it 'scare tactics' to try encourage me?

    Cheers for any and all help cos its put me really on edge

    My memory tells me the numbers aren't correct, but I don't want to guess what they are, so just check the RAF website for the information, surely you can't get any more accurate information than from their website?

    Heads up, you will be fine!

    EDIT: Here, this is what I've just found: http://www.raf.mod.uk/careers/applic...tnesstests.cfm

    EDIT2: I actually looked at the web page for a bit longer and noticed that it doesn't give you much information about the tests; sorry for this useless input!

    You need to go along and just give it your very best effort. If you can't do closer to 40 pressups and sit ups in a minute, you are pretty unfit. There are so few places for recruiting now, they can afford to be even more picky than ever, so you need to give it everything to prove you are worth it.

    Just give it your best shot, listen to what the instructors inform you they require / expect and then go for it.

    If you do get in but don't enjoy the fitness stuff, there used to be the old saying;

    If you're lazy and overweight
    Go and join 58

    ( Sorry to all the guys on 58 Sqn )

    Goodluck and hope you become a Rockape in the near future !
