Boot camp for potbellied Thai cops
BANGKOK: Sometimes it seems the only thing more common than a traffic jam in Thailand’s capital is a fat police officer trying to solve it.
An effort is under way to whip Thailand’s potbellied policemen into shape with the start of a 12-day boot camp.
About 60 overweight officers are taking part in the dawn-todusk exercise and lecture programme on living healthier lives at a police training centre.
They start with pre-dawn jogs followed by yoga, aerobic dance classes, tai chi, and lectures by nutritionists and trainers.
