    Any of you guys former swimmers/using swimming to prepare? I've been slacking cramming for finals and graduation and finally have the time to get back on schedule again. Thinking about mixing in a few days of swimming with my runs.

    So we don't need a waiver signed by a physician this time around? I could've sworn we needed one for the 6019 physical. I'm not even up for my CPAT yet.....just curious is all. Thanks.

    I've been doing interval workouts 1 - 2X a week with a group of people. I find that it helps a great deal with my breathing and can be something extra on top of running and riding a bike. However, it seems that most people are placing importance on running so that has been my main focus. A few times a week in the pool is a great addition in my opinion.

    I was worried about it also, I had my wife read it, and my sister who is the medical field read it also, and she said I dont need it signed. I got to CPAT and they just had me sign my part, and I was on my way.
    But if it makes you feel better, it won't hurt to get it signed I guess, but there is no need.

    I used to swim. Haven't been in water for about 6 months though.

    Thanks for the info man. Would prefer not seeing the doc just because he's only open M-F during my work hours. This saves me a bit of stress actually.

I don't have any existing or pre-existing medical conditions so does that mean I can show up to cpqt without the physicians signature. Thats the impression i'm under, I just want to be sure.
    Infolet333, I sent you a PM.

    What's up guys -
    Can anyone recommend a cheap gym with a stairmaster? The gym I use regularly doesn't have one. Looking to add one on for the next year until I hopefully get called.

    I swim 4-5 days a week in addition to running and the other things I'm doing.

    @irish
    I'm in Staten island the only two i know of are nysc and la fitness. New york sports club is the cheaper of the two at $39 a month. $29 if you do the fdny plan that excludes you from peak hours 4-8. There's probably some smaller gyms with them i just don't know of any

    I have the same question about the CPAT notice needing to be signed if we do not have the listed conditions; and if we had the other notice signed by a doc. Thanks

    So, I took the physical today and smashed it. I met MannyJay from this board, so that was cool.

    There was a dude there that was looking for parking for 2 hours, so learn from that and take the train there.

    You don't have to get that medical form signed.

    maybe you guys who went through the process with 6019 would know, but if we miss the cut off for the July class any guesses on when they'd start giving out medicals for January? I was thinking around August?

    Hi All,

    Havent been on here in a few months - hope everyone who has been called in so far is making progress and doing well. All others im sure are waiting for their # to be called like myself. Two questions I have that maybe someone can give me a bit of information on. 1) Have they started to call #'s from the OC list yet? 2) Will you automatically be excluded from the job for having asthma(I have asthma but its seasonal and its under control)?
