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.

The TFT Program correlated each exercise to movements, actions, tasks, and situations an officer would find themselves in. I believe our recruits are more prepared both physically and mentally for the challenges of patrol services after completing this program.

Learning and seeing the benefits of the TFT Program, I was convinced this program should be part of our Police Certification Curriculum. The TFT Program can assure the Law Enforcement Professionals can survive the physical and mental demands that this essential profession demands.
