Ways to prep yourself for boot camp:Start getting up early like 5 am, then stretch for 15 minutes and then run a mile. Then the next day run 10% more and so on. You need to build your endurance/stamina up. You are speccing as if you are tank in a mmo. You will need to be able to take a beating (not a violent type but a endurance type ).Getting used to getting up early will help immensely. Since you have two months you should be able to acclimate yourself by then.
Its the running that you need to get used to if you don't do it very much. Well for me it all the running we did and its was crazy how much we ran.
Oh... and learn your reporting statement!!!
Yeah I say get up early. Get used to going to bed no later than 9PM too, if you can. Don't snack either, you won't be snacking but eating three times a day and that is it.The other thing you can do, if it is convenient, is start doing 10 pushups every hour every day (7 days a week) for at least 8 hours. Do this for 1 week. The next week, do 15. Increase by 5 every week.Also every hour, do 10 situps. Progress as for push-ups.For running, run 3 times a week for at least 2 miles first thing in the morning, at 0530. If you are in poor shape (like me), walk instead, then progress to running. Don't worry about speed, work on your breathing and form. If you are able to run at least a 16 minute mile heading into boot camp you are going to coast through that part as you will steadily improve during the training regimen.In 8 weeks time you will be as fit as needed for PT.As much a downer as all of this is for you to be doing now, you will be so much readier when you go in. If you skip these steps you will do these things after boot starts, but it will be all the harder.

Remember, they are actors doing a job to break you down and build you back up with discipline. While it may seem like hell(at times), its a game. Learn the game and you'll be fine.
Lights out tended to be between 7 and 9 but mostly the former. Getting used to sleeping earlier is a plus. You'll more than likely be tired enough to nod off immediately, but it's still not going to hurt to get your internal clock on the same timing, or roughly equal to it.It's early to bed and early to rise during training.
Yeah. Depending on your branch they want you to call them by their rank or drill sergeant, or in my case with the USAF it was Sir. And never say 'OK' in response to anything they say. Say, "Yes *and appropriate rank/title*." Remember, they are actors doing a job to break you down and build you back up with discipline. While it may seem like hell(at times), its a game. Learn the game and you'll be fine. <----- Was this close || to being a drill instructor.
Another question should I get my passport currently I don't have one.
