Police Fitness and Wellness is the first book to focus on the overall health and well-being of law enforcement officers.
The book is broke-down into 2 main sections: Police Fitness and Police Wellness. The Fitness Section discusses exercise and training protocols starting from when a police applicant tries out for a police department, until the officer or deputy reaches his/her 50's and retirement is fast approaching.
In the Police Wellness Section other lifestyle issues are discussed such as food, supplements and sleep - with exercise they make-up the police lifestyle protocols called The 4 Pillars of Police Health.
The book gives a wide overview of police health and lifestyle issues that cause the #1 police killer to take officer's lives at almost a 70-1 ratio versus officer killed my violent means. Heart attacks are by far the number one killer of officer's and the book gives many methods to change this statistic by simply starting easy small-step (baby-step) healthy lifestyle changes which can drastically improve an officer's chances of hitting retirement in good health.
As stated earlier Police Fitness and Wellness is the first and only book available that concentrates its' effort to improving an officer's health. This book was recommended by an Ohio sheriff who stated "This book should be given out to each new recruit starting their police career". Setting a healthy police lifestyle pattern early and staying with it is hard, Police Fitness and Wellness will make it much easier.
