Why Choose Us

A Fire Fitness program is a "Resistance Program" designed to improved your total body strength and muscular endurance. It is not a "bodybuilding" or "power lifting" program. Although, muscle strength and growth will occur. These programs are designed to prepare all emergency service workers, weather it be Firefighters, EMS, or Law Enforcement, they will specifically apply for the tasks of your job by using lift, carry, push, pull movements that are used on the emergency seen and can be duplicated in exercise.

Your fitness program will be designed for you, to be preformed three days per week. There will be days of rest in between to allow for muscle recovery and growth.
