Overweight Cops

Train Right Get home at Night™

Be fit

The modern police environment requires a cop in control of their body. Exhausted cops are less prepared for that one career defining moment. Out-of-shape cops don't just fail to pursue and apprehend perps - their careers are cut short. They burn out mentally or wind up on long term disability.

You can’t serve & protect without your boots on the ground.

The TFT Program showed me that little to no equipment is needed for a solid, well-rounded fitness program. As a member of the Dubuque Police Department's fitness committee, I highly recommend this program.

Since starting this program I've lost 50 lbs. I'm sitting here competing with kids who are 10 years younger then me and SMOKIN' them in the gym now. And it just feels GREAT. This program is definitely going to give you that step up.

It focuses people's attention on what is necessary as a responsibility not only when they get hired, and they're on duty, but also when they're off-duty. This job requires me to be physically fit. It incorporates workouts geared towards our line of work.
