I'm interested in trying to become a mental health nurse student (the apprenticeship) in the Royal Navy, but coming from and inactive past (almost no physical exercise) it most certainly won't be easy. If anyone could give some advice or top tips on exercising and alternative exercises for swimming (because no pools due to lockdown), that would be most appreciated.
Any general tips for the application and definitely the interview would also massively help.

There are many military fitness programmes available online, for example, the RAF have a 'Fit for Action' 12 week programme designed to get applicants fit. I'm sure the Navy will have something similar?

'RAF Fit for Action' is a good place to start if nothing else.

'General tips' is a massive subject. There is plenty of discussion on interviews in here and the applying for a job forum; do a search and you'll need to ask something a bit more specific (within the rules, of course).
