AR fitness

Same as the Regulars. Personal fitness is each individuals responsibility, do it in your own time. Three sessions of own PT is paid as far as I am aware
 
I’m not AR Infantry, but for my own AR PT regimen I follow the apps online for the Lone Soldier PT programme.
For weight carrying, I’ve got civvy kit that I can use like bergen, boots etc. Any one asks what I’m up to I just tell them I’m training for the Three Peaks.
Obviously there’s only so much an individual can do, which is why AR unit PTIs should factor in any training deficit for organized PT

How does your lot do it? There's an Irish Army Reserve, yes?

There is yes and all practically all in own time (no pay for gyms or anything like that, very little organised PT on courses or in units (personal responsibility!))

For most people it is simple just running etc

Just trying to get a different perspective

Sounds similar to our set up here in Denmark. Some of us at my unit have been trying to motivate people to do more by trying various fitness tests from different countries. It is difficult to get people up off the sofa when they're not getting paid for it though.

Cheers thanks

That helps

I assume that app is for serving personnel only?
