Can I join the UOTC

Hi all
I'm interested in joining the UOTC but my weight i 125kg. My goal is to join the British Army as an officer and I feel this is the great place to start whilst attending university and starting my fitness journey.

Would I be able to join my local UOTC because of my weight? Is there particular fitness requirements? I don't have any medical conditions.

"Getting yourself in top condition to join the Army includes focusing on your diet. Eating well will help you feel more energised and reach your fitness goals. There are loads of guides to follow to get inspired about eating well. This will also help you stay on track to have a healthy BMI - which you need to pass."
