Crossfit trains you for the unknown and the unknowable. There is no greater parallel for that credo than risking your life in the line of duty.

That’s why Dennis, an 11-year veteran and detective from Garfield Police Department in New Jersey, started Crossfit in 2012. Dennis has placed on the top 1% of all Crossfit athletes and has ranked among the top 3 fittest police officers in NJ in the last 3 years.

When Garfield PD moved to a larger building, Dennis seized the opportunity by repurposing underutilized space, by securing equipment with the City’s support and by gaining free affiliation thanks to Crossfit Law Enforcement program.

Today, he is the Director of Crossfit GarfieldPD, a non-profit gym open to all law enforcement officers in the department. Dennis might be physically strong, but his true power is helping officers develop the physical and mental strength to keep the City of Garfield safe.
