Becoming a Firefighter
Hello everyone. I'm currently undertaking the challenging task of becoming a firefighter. It's been a goal of mine for sometime, but I have been talked out doing it twice.

And I'm currently using the Navy Seals training book to get into shape. Has anyonehad any success with it?
Thanks alot for you help.
