LawFit Fitness Profiles

Utilizing percentile data from the fitness tests of almost 6000 police officers Dr. Bever has developed fitness profiles based on age and gender. Five categories (Excellent, Good, Average, Below Average, Poor) describing levels of officer fitness have been developed for bench press, push-ups, sit-ups, sit & reach, pull-ups, 1.5 mile run, and the work performance test.
