In the Forces if you lose your fitness you can't get signed on. There are disciplinary consequences if you can't sort yourself out too.

Personally I was always allergic to gyms and avoided them like the plague. By the time the fitness regime was brought in I was old enough to legally avoid it. When I think of it though, there was no way a submariner in the old diesel boats could get fit anyway, the exercise bike rusted up with the condensation when we tried it. As a radio op in the RAF there was again no need to be a jockstrapper either. However, now I'm retired I do exercise because I want to get my pensh for as long as I can and also remain mobile, funny how things and attitudes change.

Even I was super fit in training, most initial training courses make sure of that anyway. It's what happens when you get out in the mainstream that things change and a few sherberts later you're snookered. The police need to be fit though if they are on the "front line", whatever that is.

It is a joke!!

What the media didn't say was where they got their figures from (they even got the figures wrong). The actual amount in the Winsor Report was 75%. They also forgot to say that the 75% of officers branded by the media as being overweight were, in fact, actually 75% of those officers WHO ATTENDED A PROGRAMME FOR, AMONG OTHERS, THE OVERWEIGHT. And who, moreover, voluntarily joined the programme because they were determined to lose weight and get fit.

Tom Winsor actually opens his comments on police fitness by admitting: “There is little data on the fitness of those in the police service” adding that when Hampshire Constabulary conducted a trial fitness test, 97% of those who took it passed.

I do wish that those in the media would actually READ such reports before putting details in their papers. Mind you, they don't do so well reporting on our Armed Forces either so I'm not surprised really. After all, the truth doesn't sell papers quite so well does it.

The Nationally agreed level in order to achieve entrance in terms of fitness into the Police is 5.6
