Tunbridge Wells to Sandhurst: Tom Hardiman passes gruelling army entry test thanks to British Military Fitness

When Tom Hardiman set his sights on joining the army, he knew his fitness would have to improve.

The 21-year-old desperately wanted to make his dream of being an infantry officer a reality, so went along to Tunbridge Wells Common for a fitness class organised by British Military Fitness.

Less than two months later, the Tunbridge Wells resident passed the gruelling Sandhurst entry test.

Mr Hardiman formerly worked in telesales for a production company, but found the job too sedentary.

He said: "For as long as I can remember I have wanted to be in the army, I love the sense of adventure, the camaraderie, and the physical aspect of being an officer cadet.

"I knew that if I wanted to join the forces I needed to be familiar with outdoor exercise.

"I am now more efficient, my stamina has increased massively and I recover quicker.

"I hope to be one of the fitter cadets on my intake by the time I reach Sandhurst, and long-term I hope to lead fantastic soldiers in demanding situations."

He will become an officer cadet at Sandhurst in September.
