    My recruiter is having me come to this orientation class before boot camp. She said that we will do the PT test while there. I was just wondering what it’s like and if they get upset if you don’t do well?


    PS. This is kind of unrelated, but I read an article about the coast guard not enforcing physical fitness after boot camp in an attempt to boost enlistment. Is this true? I hope not.

    If you do not do well at the recruiters, he can, and likely will, change your ship date to boot camp. Especially if that ship date is in the extreme immediate future. You had better be ready to pass it.

    The standards, once in the fleet, are not the same as they are in boot camp. But they also aren't just pffft, let yourself go, we just want to enlist more or reenlist you. You are expected to maintain weight and be healthy. Most, not all, but most units will not have an organized PT schedule and time. In the CG you don't wake up at zero dark thirty for a 20 mile run, unless you want to.

    The CG has more applicants than openings, consequently there would be no reason to artificially boost enlistment. Whoever told you that is feeding you bad info. Once in the Fleet, you'll be weighed twice a year and you need to make sure you meet your weight standard. If you are on a boat crew, you'll have to pass a physical fitness test. I'm not sure if it's annually or semi annually. All this to say, you need to maintain physical fitness, whether or not it's enforced

    Thank you for replying! I think I just psyched myself out about it. I just went to orientation and I did great on the PT test. Turns out i had nothing to worry about.

    Yep, we sure have a way of convincing ourselves it is going to be worse than it actually is. I'm glad all went well!!
