If you are a full-time law enforcement officer who is looking to unlock your potential, overcome work-related stress, more effectively handle shift work, and surround yourself with motivated individuals who can relate to the difficulties associated with police work, this program is for you.
Somewhere along the line, you made the decision to become a police officer. You made it through the hiring process, made it through the academy, and most likely, you came out of the academy in arguably the best physical and mental shape of your life. You were prepared. You were motivated. You hit the ground running. However, the more time you spent on the job, the more your academy level of fitness faded. Your level of motivation, vigor and confidence most likely began to decline as well.
Today, you find yourself at a pivotal point in your career and in your life. You now have two options.
Continue on the current path of misdirection, remain in your comfort zone, and allow your health to decline.
Regain control of your health, step out of your comfort zone, and take actionable steps to optimize your physical and mental health.
Consider the following statistics.
The average age of a law enforcement officer to suffer a heart attack is 49 years, compared to 67 years for the general population. According to the American Heart Association, 45% of law enforcement officers in the United States will suffer a heart attack prior to age 45, as opposed to 7% of the general population. We are projected to die 10 years sooner than the general population (66 years vs. 76 years) and are unlikely to live long enough to collect what we have paid into the pension system. This doesn’t even consider the elevated risk of depression and suicide among police officers. Police officers are more likely to take their own lives than have their lives taken in the line of duty. In 2017, 140 police officers in the United States committed suicide, whereas 129 were killed in the line of duty. It is no secret that the stress of this job takes a toll on our health, both physically and mentally. You need to ask yourself… “Do I want to become a statistic?”
Luckily, you have a choice.
Proper diet and exercise among police officers has been shown to significantly reduce levels of stress, decrease body fat, improve confidence and job performance, decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression, increase longevity, and decrease the risk of developing heart disease.
This program is not for everybody. In order to maximize your results in the P.A.T.H. Academy, you need to be 100% ready to commit yourself to a program that will test your mental and physical abilities. You must be motivated and ready to create lasting change in your life and your career.
