  1. Hi all
    I am currently planning to join the ta but am worried about the fitness tests for selection.
    I am not that fit at the moment and my BMI is 36. I am 5"4 and weigh 15 stone. My doctor has referred me to a gym to work on weight loss and fitness but i was wondering what sort of tests i would be required to pass to get in and get through selection.
    Any help anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated

    Please take the time to scan through the arrsepaedia, TA recruiting and regular recruiting forums. They give great detail about the standards expected and good advice on how to train for them

    In short, 1.5 miles in under 14 minutes is the basic standard to the TA recruit selection weekend, but some units may apply higher standards.
