I get the feeling most people here are already fit or play a certain sport every week. Ijust want to know can the average guy with not the best fitness but standard train and be ready for a PRMC in 6 months?? How often did u guys train before *text deleted* prmc was you already fit before it?

It all depends on your situation for all we know you could be 20 stone. But for a general rule of thumb if your in a generally fit state i.e your the correct weight for your height ect.. then 6 months is more than long enough to be ready.
They are not looking for the finished product yet!
Just train hard and make sure your at the required standard before you turn up on a PRMC.

Best of luck

Whilst not a Marine myself, just a recruiter of them: I've witnessed many average guys under 20, but not overweight, who lead an otherwise sedentary lifestyle, maybe playing football once a week who have passed PRMC within 4 months of applying and starting to get fit.

Assuming you are sufficiently mature & focussed enough, it can be achieved. Those taking over 6 months to be sufficiently prepared to pass PRMC, barring genuine injury (shin splints for example), are probably not sufficiently focussed to achieve their goal in most cases. There are always examples to the contrary, but if you really want it, you should be able to achieve a pass between 4 and 6 months of starting from scratch in most cases, unless you are foolish enough to think you can pass without thorough physical preparation.

I was average weight, and average fitness fairly strong as i was into sport.....i still failed first time round.

Id say have no illusion, PRMC is very very tough

Yup, you could in 2-3 months if you trained hard.

Since (unfortunately) you don't have to actually get 60 pressups/80 situps etc, it's not hard. And running 3 miles in 22:30 isn't hard either, you could get to that in a couple of months providing you train intensely.

PRMC isn't hard, but then again I always train balls the wall.

CAN be done within 2-3 month mark if you have the time to train, and dont get injured. My time schedule was 6 months, got injured, now I have about 2-3 months all going well to hopefully be good enough.
