The new waist measurement require is not even reasonable. The sit-ups, etc are doable. If you are 6’2’ man it is hard to have a 35” waist. 5’4 man it is easy. Running on old knees that you have used for years athletically can be difficult. Comradely is amazing. friends for a lifetime.

You don't have to be the best at fitness but you need to be determined. There is a lot of running and calisthenics.

You need to be very fit. Not only for the physical fitness tests, but when working in an austere environment it helps to be fit and healthy.
