Annual Fitness Assessment

On a cold November evening cadets, uniformed staff and some CIsĀ  took part in the annual fitness assessment of a 1.5 mile timed run, press ups and sit ups, with the NCOs and Staff having to pass in a fater time limit than the cadets, which was easier for some than others! This is long running Squadron event going back over 20 years and enables all ranks to rate their fitness and is ever more important at a time of concerns over obesity levels. This assesment builds on the ongoing fitness and sports training on the unit conducted over the year, starting with a cadets Recruit Course PT session where they are introduced to the run.
