As a nine-year veteran of the Marine Corps, police Sgt. Brian Falkenstein has seen firsthand that being in good physical condition pays benefits that extend into every facet of military and police work.
“When you’re in shape, you respond better, and keep a clearer head,” Falkenstein said. “Adrenaline can go through the roof sometimes, but like I used to tell people in the Marines, when you are confident in your physical capabilities, it’s one less stress. It’s one less thing on your mind that you need to worry about.”
