Hi all. Basically I am wondering when I should apply. At the moment I'm not at the fitness level required but I am rapidly bringing myself up to scratch working 5 days a week at the gym, mostly running and some weights training. I am not sure of exact timings for joining, but if it will be a couple of months before I need to take a fitness test, would it be wise to get things rolling now and send off my form? I can run the 1.5 miler in 11.18, do the 50 sit ups and almost 50 push ups, and thats from being able to do no push ups since Jan. However I am still at a BMI of 26 and have a moderate sized belly but I'm on a strict calorie controlled diet and it's working well. I also haven't decided on the exact job I want to do yet, either infantry or Intelligence but I will have decided before I have to actually choose. And I want to join as soon as I can really! Cheers, Ryan.
