My name is Curtis Pote and I am an Instructor at the Iowa Law Enforcement Academy.   I previously worked as a Police Officer with the Ankeny Police Department and Muscatine Police Department in Iowa. I was active in High School and College but became lazy and sedentary the longer I worked in Law Enforcement.

I began my new fitness journey in about 2009 and began running again.  I then began to run some obstacle course races and then began running Ultra Marathons.  I have completed several 100 mile runs all over the United States and have completed several Fuego Y Agua Survival Runs in the U.S, Nicaragua and Australia.

I am all about fitness and getting/keeping cops in shape. I don’t want Police Officers to get out of shape like I did.  I strive to help Officers realize how import their conditioning is and how it can impact their lives.

I have attended several training’s that enhance my ability to instruct officers.  I have completed the Cooper Institute Law Enforcement Fitness Specialist training and the Law Enforcement Fitness Coordinator Training program through the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center.  Also, In August 2017 I also received my Personal Trainer Certification from NASM.

Gone should be the days where cops and donuts are synonymous. I want every officer to have a fitness level where they can protect themselves physically as well as the community and citizens they serve. I want to improve the lives off all officers and to  motivate officers to become their best.
