Are you interested in attending the Peace Officer Basic Training (police academy) at Sinclair? One of the major events in the admissions process applying to the academy is the entry-level physical fitness standards test required before you can become a cadet. The entry level PT test is one of the primary reasons applicants do not gain admission into the academy. We want to help you prepare and provide you information on not only how but why healthy habits and a fitness routine can be beneficial. THERE IS NO TIME LIKE THE PRESENT TO BEGIN TRAINING AND LIVING A HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE.

Even if you have no intention of attending the police academy, this FREE workshop could give you just the right nudge to start 2022 off in a positive way that will be good for you. You DO NOT have to be a perspective law enforcement officer to register for this workshop – ALL comers welcome. Physical fitness and a healthy lifestyle are great mechanisms to help you manage some of the challenges and stress associated with everyday life. While it is the Sinclair Police Academy sponsoring this workshop, there is something in it for everyone.

The workshop will cover nutrition, strength, cardio, choosing the proper equipment (shoes) and other topics during this (1) one hour session. There is limited seating for each session so please don’t wait and sign up now by calling the Sinclair Police Academy at 937-512-2270 to save your spot.  If you prefer, you can e-mail your requested date and time HERE.
