Being a police officer requires a high level of fitness for both job capacity and personal safety. Athletic Lab has been a physical preparation service provider for the Cary Police Department since 2011 and Dr. Mike Young developed and instructed the Physical Preparation for Law Enforcement Officer curriculum which is regularly used at the NC Justice Academy. Our athletic-based functional training methods have helped officers raise their levels of fitness to lifetime bests. Check out these recent results:
- In a recent POPAT test, two Athletic Lab Town of Cary police officers, MR and KP (initials used at the request of Cary PD) ran lifetime bests on the standardized course by 20 seconds and 1:04 respectively.
- Athletic Lab trained Town of Cary Officer, Grant Anderson, won the 1st Annual Motor Officer Skills Competition.
- Athletic Lab trained Town of Cary Police Officer, Bruce Dale, completed the gruelling Pisgah Mountain Bike Adventure Race which took him 13 hours to complete. Bruce rode 82 miles and climbed 9,600 feet with all but 3 miles of the course off-road.
We are proud of our officers who help keep Cary, NC one of the safest cities in the United States.
