Yikes! Didn't mean to cause a debate on here. To add some sort of specific onto my initial posts, I'm not unfit. I am in sports clubs and do fighting regularly in my uni, I'm just not a runner, hence my initial worry about the running part, which I'm now not so concerned about as I got the actual test to use as real life comparison, rather than people's experiences online. I'm a she, too! (For the pronoun part in people's messages.) I was a bit vague because I'm not overall keen on talking about weight. Basically I'm on the beginning of the overweight section on bmi, and I was concerned about that going against me in the medical exam, but apparently that's alright as long as you're under a certain limit. And yeah, thanks for sticking up for me! I get what HMService is saying, of course, but I appreciate it. Was a bit taken aback when I came online and read down...
Downloaded the beep test last night and took it up to the gym with me today to practice with the actual thing, and I was definitely surprised by how easy it was. I agree with you that it sounded more strenuous on paper :) I didn't mean make allowances for the running test, I was just wondering if they have strict guidelines on a person's weight? I'm actively losing weight atm and I've got a month to go, but still a bit concerned.
Hi! New to the forum, so I hope I've got this in the right place! Got my day one next week and I'm relatively confident about it, but I'm less so for if I get through and move on to the day two with the fitness tests. The pushing/pulling are fine, but does anyone know how intense the running is? Also, not the smallest person, so are they massively strict if you're a bit on the larger side? Cheers in advance!
