Fitness and Lifestyle Management for Law Enforcement was designed to address a need for Canadian content on fitness training and wellness concepts specific to law enforcement. This edition achieves that goal by providing students with lifestyle considerations that are key to building a mind and body that can handle the rigours of a career in this field.

This text includes testing standards applicable to a variety of services (i.e. corrections, RCMP, OPP, local police) so that students are prepared regardless of where they apply for jobs in the future. It also covers a range of wellness issues that could impact students at some point in their careers, including difficulties with shift work, lack of sleep, PTSD, and various chronic diseases.

Students will also have access to the companion text, Fit for Duty, Fit for Life, which provides students with a resource that they can take into their workouts. This handbook uses photos and explanations to outline how to exercise safely and effectively, and makes it easy to track progress toward professional fitness standards by including blank logs for students to fill out.

  • Training to meet Canadian Bona Fide Occupational Requirements (BFOR) standards
  • Fit For Duty companion text to use when working out
  • New design for improved readability

  • Additional fitness tests in both the text and appendix

In Ontario, in 2019, several police services moved away from previous BFOR testing requirements and toward in-house testing. Some services have yet to determine which fitness requirements meet their needs and which are still in flux with respect to testing. Since there are still many services staying with the PREP requirements, please ensure you regularly check individual police service websites before applying.

Federally, in 2019, the RCMP began looking to revise the PARE, and Customs is looking to create their own test. The NSO has also updated their fitness requirements for 2019.

Table 1.5 BFORs and the Services That Are Using Them has been updated to reflect the changes outlined above.
