Separate fitness test from rest of ARC

Post by liamco »

Hi

I was just wondering if anybody who has had to do the fitness test and medical on a separate day from the rest of the ARC process because of COVID, what did you wear to it ? I only ask because I would have thought logically that I should go in my sports kit already, especially since they might not want people getting changed there at the moment because of COVID, but I also would hate to turn up like that when everybody else has shirt and tie etc..

Thanks

Thank you very much. I’m a bit of a worrier and the littlest of things plays on my mind 😂

Haha bless ya, I did my fitness separately and you just turn up in your gym gear.

If you’re going to Croydon and it’s a warm day make sure you’re in a tshirt. I found it hotttttt in there.
