The entry level cardiovascular condition test scores of 45 cadets at the Criminal Justice Training Institute (Florida) were compared with test scores after the cadets participated in a 15-week conditioning program. The test consisted of running, push-ups and sit-ups, and bench and leg presses. The conditioning program was designed to increase cardiovascular endurance and reduce stress, and ultimately, increase the fitness and longevity of the cadets. Results verified that there was a significant difference between pretest and posttest cardiovascular condition test scores. Cadets demonstrated that they were more aware of their conditioning level and of the importance of cardiovascular conditioning and physical fitness as a stress reduction method. The report recommends that the program become a permanent program at the Criminal Justice Training Institute and be introduced to law enforcement agencies in Palm Beach County, Florida. Appendices contain an assessment sheet and fitness profile, test scores, and statistical data. (Contains 17 references.) (JDD)
