    New maximum age is 43. I joined at 32 and certainly haven't, as yet, regretted it.

    For fitness levels read this.
  3. thanks m8t that gives me more to work on thanks for your help
  4. I'm 32 and in the process of joining right now. I'm currently one of the oldest, but to be fair there's a fair spread with the age ranges. Also after a recent PT session there is a fair spread of Fitness/Abilities too.

    Once you're confident in your fitness get down there - you won't regret it.
