Code 5 Fitness started as a grass roots training program for law enforcement officers. Current physical fitness standards for police, sheriffs, corrections, fire and even the armed forces mean specific training for a unique job description that most gym programs don't meet.
Code 5 Fitness founder Tricia Dong, a former VPD officer, knew what kinds of physical demands would be asked of police recruits during their application process, Academy training, and day-to-day duties once they graduated. So she focused her training on functional movement, not muscles, and the tagline "Fit For Duty!" was born! Her experience, combined with fitness training knowledge, make her an invaluable resource for those serious about a career in law enforcement and public safety.
Eventually, word got out about the fun and effective training methods Tricia employed during her clinics, and more and more 'civilians' started coming out. Now, Code 5 Fitness clinics are a mix of sworn members, police and fire applicants, army reservists, and every level of the general fitness population from beginners to advanced! The meaning of "Fit for Duty!" has now expanded to encompass all definitions of duty - whether it be accountable to yourself as an individual, your family as a parent or spouse, your career, your country... what is your duty?
