Getting ready for Fire I?
I have recently joined Volunteer Fire dept in my community. Joined in March, have made a bunch of calls and all in house training. Very much enjoying it. Firefighter one is typically offered in fall in my County. What do I need to do to get ready for it? I am noticing on the trainings and calls I am winded after a while and I feel I could use more strength . I am overweight but no other health issues.
What sort of training program should I be doing now to get ready for fire one?
Would love to lose some weight and get rid of the belly but I also feel I need to bump of my strength substanitally. Can I gain strenght and muscle while getting rid of the beer gut at that same time?
