physical Fitness for Safety Service Organizations

The Exercise Science Laboratory has provided physical fitness services to local safety service organizations for over 30 years. Many of today’s police and fire departments require applicants to pass certain physical fitness standards and are implementing fitness and wellness programs for incumbent members. Poor physical fitness increases the risk for injuries, fatigue and chronic disease. In firefighting, improving physical fitness has shown to substantially decrease the amount of all-cause injuries on the job. The Exercise Science Laboratory has experience in working with many local fire and police agencies to offer services that explicitly meet the needs required by each department. Our faculty and staff are dedicated to improving personal and departmental physical fitness.
