    I am 15 and am thinking about becoming a RM officer but not sure if its for me or if I could pass poc. I can do 25 quality press ups, 75 sit ups and 2.4km on a treadmill in 9:30. Any fitness suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to the site.

    Phys-wise, you've a minimum of three years to prepare, so keep doing what you are already doing without going nuts and picking-up injuries. Rest-up if you do get training niggles. The emphasis, as you seem to be aware, is cv fitness and bodyweight exercises. Don't run in boots or with weight. Make sure to do non-impact cv exercise inbetween your run-days. Swimming, rowing & cycling, in particular. Take rest days every week.

    To determine whether you want to join as an Other Rank or Officer, have a browse of the site as suggested above. This is a good starter: https://www.royalmarines.uk/threads...-answers-would-be-greatly-appreciated.112245/

    Good luck!
