Was going to put this in the Health Forum or even the PT Corps Forum but thought I'd throw it to the wolves on here: What's the panel's thoughts on the type and frequency of PT as you grow older? I think there should be more scope for the individual to have a say in his/her regime (especially over the age of 35) although this should still tie-in with basic fitness requirements. After all,as you get older the Doctor takes more of an interest in you via PULHEEMS and even the requirements to pass BPFA (or whatever it's called at the time) are altered to take age into consideration. Even sportsmen take into account their age and/or injuries and tailor their regime to suit this but we in the Army can be doing exactly the same PT from the age of 15.5 to 50 and beyond possibly!! I must add that I'm 42 and have never failed a fitness test in 21 years service despite having received more than my fair share of injuries during that time so this is not the desperate plea of a fat knacker!!!
