Hi Kwest85blue!
To be honest, I don't actually use the main site, I just come to the forums for the support and conversations!
I joined here a while back, and my goal was to get into the Royal Australian Air Force... fast forward, and I'm in! I finished Recruit (initial) training a couple of months ago, and right now am doing what's called "IETs" (Initial Employment Training) i.e: the training in our actual jobs.

My goals are pretty simple at this stage: get fit!

I've come out of recruits a lot fitter than I was, and struggled a fair bit while I was there because of my lack of fitness.
Long story short, as soon as I got there I failed the initial fitness test (which I had passed two weeks prior), then when I had my second chance I got so nervous I basically failed myself because of nerves.
Three months later I finally got onto course after a lot of hard work from the awesome PTIs (Physical Training Instructors), and passed the final fitness test at the end of course by a mere seven seconds.

So now I'm in IETs and pretty much the most unfit person by a long shot, so on the list is get to a healthier weight and quit smoking. Don't get me wrong, I'm 'relatively' fit, but there's room for improvement.

Hope that wasn't too long winded, bit I figured I can link to this post if it gets too hard to explain in other topics.
Looking forward to chatting with you later.
