Physical training program?
I'm not actually a firefighter or part of the industry, but driving home from work the other day I look in an engine bay at the local station and see a huge weight setup, and have seen many others like it from the outside in other stations. I'm a personal trainer, and have been thinking about approaching some local stations to see if they already have a trainer/program/may be allowed or interested to have a trainer in their station. I was hoping for some input from the community on if the regulations would allow for an outside trainer to work in station, if stations usually have/would be open to this. And especially what would your physical goals out of a training program, I would assume absolute strength and power most of all for occasions of emergency need, and what programs might you have in place already in your station?
Id really appreciate any input you guys can give me! I'd really like to see what I can do to help the firefighting community.
