    That is, indeed, exactly what it's called.

      I hit the gym and also run on the treadmill since it's still been fairly cold outside lately. I wish I could change into running shoes, but the boots are fairly comfortable.
      On the one hand, training in the gear you are actually going to run in is a really good idea.

      On the other hand, you let people know who you are and what you do. Depending on the environment, some people may decide to give you grief in an effort to make themselves look good.

      I sweat like a pig when I do anything physical. How do you manage to not have to shower/change clothes when you get done?

      Also, regarding the boots - how do your knees feel? Are you able to stretch your calves before you get started?

        Sorry, never noticed your reply until now. To answer your questions, I didn't work out when the gym was occupied by students or staff. There are times during the day, however, when the gym would be empty and I'd have it to myself. Because I would still be on-duty, I didn't work out to the point where I was greatly exerted. Just several sets of reps and a light run.

        I did stretch before running and the Bates boots felt great to run in. I would obviously prefer a good set of running shoes, but I never had any discomfort running in the boots. No problems whatsoever with my knees while running.

          I like LPGuy's routine. Instead of a needless break, work some muscle groups out to get your metabolism going so will be alert. It will help you fill your bad uniforms out so they look better anyway. Plus you are checking out the weight room routinely for suspicious activities. It looks good for Security image, your boss, and your self on the job.

          Schools or deluxe condo's are two good opportunities. Lats and bicepts one day, chest and tricepts the next, and legs or stationary bike most every day. Just takes about 4 quick double sets in 15 minutes. Keeps those uniforms from stretching in the wrong places.

            That was one nice thing about working in a school. Our supervisors encouraged us to work out in the gym during the slow periods. It's good for the officers, which is good for security, so it works out every way.

              Surprised me when I started work here because our security department is owned by the private college we work for. All training and all equipment/uniforms are provided free of charge. Pay is good, hours are decent. And the uniforms look a slight variant to some sheriff uniforms. Private colleges are treasure troves apparently because we also have a brand new truck for patrols. Bascialy I got freakin lucky.
