If you don't you should start EVERY watch with an apology to your fellow Officers. And if you do, keep up the great work and get your fellow Officers on board ASAP! You don't have to be Bruce Jenner, but be an athlete and stay alive a little longer! It's a matter of Officer Safety, yours and your fellow Officers! If your partner is in a donny-brook on the other side of a fence after a foot pursuit, and you can't get over the fence because your not fit enough! Standby, because you gonna feel like dirt if he/she gets hurt or dead because of your lack of fitness mixed with the current situation ! Keep your mind riight and stay fit! Stay Safe Warriors!

My department does provide a nice workout facility at the station. Few officers use it, but others suffer from done-lap syndrome. I ride bicycle patrol during the summer and weight train 3-4 days a week. I was involved in a fight with a meth head a few years ago. I am 6'.2" 230 and the tweeker was 5.8 125 and it took every ounce of strength I had to keep him at bay until back-up arrived. The tweeker had just gotten out of prison and attempted several submission holds to get my gun. Needless to say my baton had a permanent bend in it and he has a permanent limp. I could not imagine holding up against him if I wasn't in some kind of shape. If your not gonna train for your health, then train for your life.

first, I'm not an officer. However, I am one of those lucky ones that has a high metabolism. Can eat whatever I want when I want as much as want. ( one of the people everybody hates) But, I do excercise every once in a while. I play softball and have a weight machine. so for 5'2" and at 39yrs of age, still pretty solid fit. if I do say so myself. I know sounds conceited, so that's the last I will comment on my physique.

Fitness is very important to any individual. As you get older I highly suggest doing something fun. I am signing up for a belly dancing class. I like new things and that sounds like fun and will be a 2 hour workout. Spice up the usual workouts.
