Im at college doing BTEC public services, going to join the infantry when I finish the course, probably the rifles. Only reason I'm doing it is to kill time because I wasn't 18 when i started it and my parents can't stand the idea of joining the army, because in my mums words soldiers are cannon fodder. i don't give two shits what they think to be honest, so the second I turn 18/finish the course I'm going to the afco and joining up. I know I can pass barb because college got the navy in to do their version and I got the highest score that the recruiter had ever seen. does anyone have any advice, tips or whatever about what it's like at atc, what day to day life is like once you've done catterick and stuff to do before I join up, like ideal fitness standards, and stuff, because there's a bare minimum or there's a standard that'll see you through with more comfort. at least for the first 2 weeks of catterick and the physical assessment.
