George Mason and its National Center for Public Safety Fitness host the first annual LawFit Trooper Challenge, held in the Field House yesterday and today. Teams of male and female law enforcement officers from states throughout the country are participating in this first-of-its-kind event.
Organized by David Bever, director of the national center and associate professor of Health, Fitness, and Recreation Resources, the competition will consist of a series of six fitness and job-related competitive events designed to gauge the overall fitness of police officers.
“The fitness challenge will be a lot of fun, but, more importantly, it will emphasize how critical it is for police officers to maintain a high level of fitness, particularly during this important time in our nation’s history,” says Bever.
The National Center for Public Safety Fitness’s LawFit program was created in 1989 specifically to address the issue of public safety professionals’ health and wellness. For more information, visit the center’s web site.
