Firefighters have to be prepared to save lives, and that means they have to be fit enough to survive the hazards of the job.
For a firefighter, being fit is far more than a job requirement, it’s a life requirement. 40-50 percent of firefighters killed in the line of duty die from heart attacks. 555 Fitness is on a mission to change those statistics. You can get on board to help them, and help yourself. Help them by buying accessories and stickers from their store. Help yourself by joining in their functional fitness Workout of the Day, posted Monday through Saturday (Sunday is rest day) on their blog.
You may never be called upon to save someone else’s life — but you can use these workouts to improve and extend your own.
