Equipment Costs

#1 Post by garyquinn1704 » Mon 09 Jun, 2008 6:52 pm

I'm considering joining and am curious about what equipment I'd have to provide for myself. Surely I bring my own PT clothing but I'm thinking of the like of Bergens, camo clothing etc. What must we provide ourselves?

Anything you need will be issued, you wont be allowed to wear your own kit in training.

Wish I had someone elses feet and knees as mine are done.

On another not a mate of mine went to the MO with a bad knee the MO told him it was old age. Tom told him his sore knee was the same age as the good one and wanted to know what was wrong. :D

:D

When you reach my age "they" will offer you a nice new chrome knee -

and by that time your hip will have gone due to 'favouring' your bad knee

I've 'donated' so much lately that I'd signed for that I'm opting to wait

:wink:
