Steve Pitts has over 30 years in law enforcement, retiring as the chief of Reno PD in Nevada. In Nevada, every first responder has to take an extensive physical every year that includes blood work and biomarkers. It’s mandatory. Chief Pitts saw the opportunity in this data to develop a wellness program based on science and actionable information to make his officers and his department more successful.

I met Steve in January at a law enforcement wellness conference. He gave a presentation titled, “Resilience as a Path to Wellness.”

In this episode, we talk about his career, his definition of resilience and how to manage a 30+ year career, how he implemented a wellness routine, his personal training regime and how it has changed through the years, goal setting, and much more.
