Ahmed Alagha of the Bergenfield PD lost nearly 100 pounds and is keeping it off every day by hitting the gym before or after 12-hour shifts;
Emily Dubon is a personal trainer at Retro Fitness in Hackensack who proved everyone wrong by running laps around her classmates in the police academy;
Robert Guidetti is the Paramus PD deputy chief. His motivation to stay in shape are charity fitness events including obstacle races, 5Ks and indoor cycling rides;
Timothy Janz of the Wood-Ridge PD schedules his shifts around high school wrestling practice as one of the head coaches;
Martin Kahn is Fairview's police chief and his own toughest critic. On the side, he runs Fit and Blue, an online community for law enforcement officers in the fitness industry -- and is co-sponsoring this contest. If he wins, Kahn said, he'll forfeit and happily take bragging rights;
Christie Ohlendorf dropped 40 pounds through CrossFit in order to land her dream job with the Wayne PD;
Kevin Otero of Garfield PD transitioned into law enforcement after serving in the U.S. Marine Corps;

Gianluca Ragone of Haworth PD takes his meals to work as a real-life transformer -- and hopes to take both his bodybuilding and police careers to the next levels;
John Yoon of the Bergen County Sheriff's Department was one of the first Korean-speaking law enforcement officers in Bergen County. He competed professionally as an all-natural bodybuilder for years. Now the New Milford dad just works out to stay in shape.
