That was the question rookies asked after TFT helped a group of 32 recruits pass their exit fitness standards for their academy. "What do we do now?" Recruits leave the academy in better shape than when they entered. Is officer wellness less critical after a rookie joins an agency? At TFT, we believe an officer's mental and physical wellness is essential for entering the academy, but even more critical after leaving the academy. Officers develop a habit of fitness training while in the academy. TFT's purpose is to help officers maintain their fitness as active-duty officers. After years of training police officers, Scott Michel founded the TFT program.
The TFT program shows officers how and why they must train and continue as a fitness and nutrition resource that officers use throughout their careers. TFT demonstrates movements officers use to reduce the common injuries seen in shoulders, low back, hips, and ankles. TFT also helps officers navigate the challenges of maintaining their nutrition while juggling dynamic work schedules and connect with officers across the country who have stayed physically and mentally healthy throughout their careers. TFT delivers this content in a six-day per week program via short videos accessed through the TFT mobile app. Now, officers can have immediate access to the vital resources needed to have a successful and healthy career in law enforcement.
