About the Author:

Robert Hoffman retired from the U.S. Army as a lieutenant colonel in 1991 and is now director of FitForce. During his 22 years in the military, Bob completed assignments around the world. He commanded a Brigade Headquarters Company in Germany, a Ranger Company in Vietnam, and a Special Forces SCUBA Detachment at Fort Bragg, NC. He also commanded the 4th Ranger Training Battalion at Fort Benning, GA, where in addition to working with Rangers, Bob trained U.S. Drug Enforcement Agents who were being deployed in South America.

Bob spent 3 years as the director of training for the Army’s Soldier Physical Fitness School and brought the Army’s fitness program from the Dark Ages into the 21st century by helping to develop the Army’s Total Fitness program. He also spent 4 years as a professor in the Department of Physical Education at West Point. While there, he was an assistant cross-country and track coach and a junior varsity basketball coach.

Bob holds a master’s degree in physical education from Indiana University. He is certified as a fitness instructor by the American College of Sports Medicine and as a Master Fitness Trainer by the U.S. Army. He is a member of the American Society of Law Enforcement Trainers. Bob is the author of Running Together: The Family Book of Jogging, and he helped write the army’s Physical Fitness Training field manual. Bob lives in Champaign, IL.

While there, Tom initiated the institute’s involvement in law enforcement fitness and created the Police Fitness Instructors Course, which he used to train more than 7,000 police fitness health instructors. He has helped more than 200 law enforcement agencies design fitness programs and standards and has also conducted more than 30 fitness standards validation studies within federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies.

Tom was a military policeman with the U.S. Army, a police psychologist for the Dallas Police Department, and training director for the Kentucky Department of Justice. He has served as the national fitness director for the American Society of Law Enforcement Trainers and as a special consultant/clinician on law enforcement fitness to the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports and the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP).
