He is extremely knowledgeable about law enforcement injuries and has a doctorate in physical therapy and non-traditional training methods in the gym.

How can we indulge this Thanksgiving without throwing away our hard work of fitness and nutrition? Trainer Kristen with Team Fit For Duty is helping us avoid the holiday bulk, with tips on how to "Maintain Not Gain".
Summary of Interview with Dr. Jace Allbright:
- Dr. Jace also works with Dr. Tina Wang at Tupelopointe.
- He works with teaching people proper form to prevent injury.
- The majority of injuries he sees in law enforcement are lower back pain, rotator cuff tears, ankle issues, and injury due to a physical altercation.
- 80-90% of the time officers spend time is spent sitting.
- Getting up to move isn't always practical for officers.
- Officers should have a full range of motion outside of their shift to prevent injury.
- Relative strength is good for an officer, but they should focus on functional fitness.
- Recovery plans are crucial.
- Sleep is an important factor in recovery and sleep density should be a focus point.
- A pinch of sea salt in your water can improve your hydration.
- When trying to recuperate your muscle you have to take into account different factors to find how to go about recovery.
- The resting state of any human should be pain-free.
- Nutrition plays a huge factor in pain and fatigue.
- When suggesting a workout Dr. Allbright he first asks what people like to do.
- High-Intensity workouts are the most beneficial.
- Kettlebell, battle ropes, and sandbag workouts are self-limiting exercises. That requires the stabilizer muscles to be put to use.
- The ropes are a fun alternative for running.
- Tooling improves fascia restrictions, plantar fasciitis, and other physical problems by bringing blood to the surface, causing trauma to repair.

Summary of talk with The Crew :
- Tamrin works out at home when she can't make it to the gym.
- Mike is currently at 210.5 lbs.
- Juicy has been keeping up with his CrossFit program for the past 4-5 months.
- Mike posted a social media video that has gone viral about a woman who wrote a nice note that was handed to a police officer with a note. The note stated that she was involved in the Route 91 shooting. She was doing 58 acts of kindness in honor of a girl named Jordan, from LaVerne, and those who passed due to the incident.
- As the video was shared more and more, the video was getting a lot of commentary from the friends and family of those affected in the Las Vegas shooting.
- The video has been an inspiration to pay it forward and continue to participate in random acts of kindness.
- "Push The Positive Campaign"
- When posting on social media, do so with the intent of doing good from a genuine place.
- Even with a setback of having to have surgery, Juicy still does what is physically capable of at this point in his recovery. Rowing and pull-ups have been his go-to's.
- Kerrygold butter is butter from grass-fed cows.
- If you eat "clean" for the majority of the year, indulging in Thanksgiving is not going to kill your body.
- You cannot meal prep for only one day, do so for a few days.
- In Marc's office, Millennials are the ones putting in the work and Generation X is taking more time off.
- Alan, being a millennial, works from a department where they feel extremely supported and feel like they can have a balance of work, family, travel, and their profession is not the end all be all of who they are.
- Officers are not defined as a person by just being an officer. There are other things they want to do, but when they come to work they take their job seriously and effectively.
- By generalizing people, we are causing more damage than good by creating biased.
- In Alan, Marc, and Tamrin's experience they have witnessed that at times it is the veteran officer's and"old timers" who get comfortable with their career and are lax.
- Take responsibility for your power of position, teach properly, and teach people with humanity.
