Marion County Sheriff's Deputy Jason Nasworth and his wife, Ocala Police Officer Jessica Nasworth, will both compete in the what's described as "police olympics."
He will be compete in mens heavyweight body building and jessica is part of the women's figure competition.
Months before the games, the couple starts dieting and working out five days a week.

The couple said participating in these games keeps them fit for their jobs.
