Sports & Fitness

Physical Fitness and team spirit are very important essentials of Indian Navy ethos. The Navy stresses the importance of fitness every day to its members. That is why we provide free access to high quality sports facilities on board ships and shore establishments. Many of our ships have gymnasium facilities on board. Team sports are encouraged and number of sporting championships are organised within the Navy.

Social Life

On board a ship you will live and work in close quarters with other members of your team. Therefore you will have to get along well with other people. There will be ample opportunities for you and your colleagues to unwind onboard a ship or at harbour. In all accommodation areas onboard ship and at shore there are TV and stereo systems. You can take time to wind down and chill out as you watch DVDs or listen to CDs.

The officers and men have a physical training programme they have to clear the Physical Efficiency test from time to time. Most of our Naval base stations have state-of-the-art fitness and workout centers in the world. These facilities and programs promote personal, physical and mental excellence, as well as meet leisure needs and help develop positive lifestyle habits. Personnel can also participate in strength and weight training, cardiovascular conditioning and yoga.

Some of you may also get opportunity to participate in adventure activities like mountaineering, river rafting, parachuting etc.

When your ship, submarine is in its base port and not deployed on exercises or operations, you will be able to spend time with your family and friends. A number of clubs for officers and institute for sailors have been set up to get together with your family and friends.
