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.
