Our 24 hour course is designed to educate first responders, safety officers, and PFT/WFI Instructors on the latest research and techniques in exercise science that will optimize their performance, reduce injury, and improve Fire Fighter specific wellness.
Often described as a Fire Fighter Fitness “technique mastery class”, your PFT’s will gain an additional 1.3 ACE CEC’s.
“In fire-ems, we train the least for the thing we do the most (patient handling). That also has the highest injury risk for a fire fighter, and then we wonder why they keep getting hurt”. The Injury Free SYSTEM breaks this cycle.
“The key to a successful and lasting fitness program is constant training, constant reinforcement and a clear understanding of what exercises are safe/valid and what is myth. To improve wellness requires that mobility marries to ergonomics which marry to safe job specific exercises. Programs that fail to follow this proven methodology with fall short of meeting their goals”.
“With 1/3 of all injuries a direct result of training, to not get hurt in the first place, the program will educate, empower and motivate while stopping the misdirected pursuit of strength and fitness common in the fire service”
“We received excellent reviews of your classes. This was probably the most valuable training we have had in several years.”
– Asst. Chief Jodi Hettrick Anchorage Fire Department.
“There were several “aha” moments in the class, a sort of collective “Of course! Why didn’t we think of that?” The solutions were often to problems we didn’t even realize we had, but those solutions are practical and logical. This is a comprehensive, systematic, supported approach to a slew of issues firefighters face, from sleep deprivation to cancer risks to nutrition to testosterone levels, all on top of the core teachings presented. All of this is backed up scientifically and supported by Mr. Fass with his follow-on information and support through today’s technology and social media platforms. I am already indebted to Mr. Fass for his knowledge, his understanding of what ails us as firefighters, and his passion and mastery of the subjects he shared with us here in Mesquite. I can’t wait to see how this positively impacts our fire department.”
