Many firefighters struggle to get and stay fit, while departments struggle to hold firefighters accountable to basic fitness levels. Who is responsible for fitness—the firefighter? The department? Both?

We don’t have all the answers, but we can start an honest discussion about how individual firefighters and departments can realistically begin to tackle the fitness issue. In this webinar, a panel of distinguished guests will discuss the unique fitness needs of firefighters, how to design workouts for maximum effectiveness, and how to instill a culture of fitness throughout the department.

You’ll learn:

  • What fitness components are most important for firefighters and why
  • Key elements to build into your workouts
  • The importance of making fitness a department priority, and tips for motivating and supporting all firefighters to improve fitness
