    Exercise routines

    At one my details they have small gym. No weights just a few bikes and tread mill and sky machine. I try run 2 miles a night i work 6 nights weeks so that's 12 miles a week. I'm very grateful about my company's uniforms black bdu's pants with a black polo for nice details and t shirt for ships and warehouse so on.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

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

    Gee, I wouldn't have thought it possible to find clothes (or much of anything else) that would embarrass you. "Mr. Pride", you ain't.

    Never ceases to amaze me how little thought seems to go into some uniform selections, starting with the public relations impact of different designs, to say nothing of their operational implications. You can see this also in the juvenile names some services give themselves, as well as in poor vehicle graphics and company logos. This is to say nothing about poor company website design and function...which is a whole nother discussion.

    Security companies should recognize the enormous opportunity they have to shape their image visually with their names, uniforms, vehicles, logos and websites if these things are done right. When they're done wrong, on the other hand, the impact is equally negative. They should spend some bucks (which is much less than the return they'll get) and seek professional design and website guidance from people who know what they're doing in these areas.
    You nailed this point. Security companies that supply "goofy" looking uniforms also create low morale for the unfortunate guards who have to be seen in them, whether on the job or by neighbors when returning home.

    The only companies I worked for that had decent uniforms was Wackenhut and Transcor America.
