Lt. Ronald Perez has been with the NYPD for 18 years. He is one of the people who helped open NYPD CrossFit a little more than a year ago to help his fellow officers deal with the stress that comes along with police work. Recently, NYPD CrossFit has been partnering with Afrobrutality to spread the message of fitness to underserved communities. We talk about with Lt. Perez about why he got into law enforcement, starting NYPD CrossFit, dealing with the stress of police work and the things he's learned through the community workouts he and his fellow officers are helping to organize.
