    Default Laws regarding gyms in the firehouse

    Does anyone know if there are any laws in regards to gyms in the firehouse, specifically in NYS? I keep hearing that there needs to be a personal trainer on site to use the equipment. Is this true?

    Thank you

    My FD in NYS has had a workout room for 25-30 years and we have never had a PT. This is the 1st I have ever heard about the possibility of needing one. Only about 5% of the membership use the equipment. Besides what would having a PT do for us? Health clubs don't spend much if any time with you when you 1st join.

    I have NOT heard of anything like that in NYS. You can double check with OFPC.......

    Thank you very much for the information. I have also been to a few other firehouses in NYS that have gyms and none have had a PT. Thanks again.
