“If you always have to be ready for an emergency situation, you have to stay fit on multiple levels.”
First responders, such as police officers, firefighters, and emergency medical technicians depend upon their health and fitness to do their jobs to their best possible ability. Being in good shape is imperative to first responders, and Advanced Exercise is honored to assist our country’s heroes in their fitness endeavors by providing the best possible cardio and strength training equipment, as well as fitness center layout and design services to optimize the facility, while working within budget and space restrictions.
The International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) advises that rescuers should get between 60 and 90 minutes of exercise or advanced training while on shift, utilizing cardio equipment such as treadmills and elliptical machines, as well as strength training equipment like dumbbells and smith machines. Strength and cardio training significantly reduces the risk of injury for first responders, while fortifying them for rigorous responsibilities that being a first responder entails.
Advanced Exercise’s fitness center design consultants work with fire departments, police departments, and emergency medical technicians across the nation to give them the ability to train more efficiently and effectively, allowing them to live healthier lives, sustain longer careers, and ultimately save more lives. When our nation’s first responders are in peak shape, it benefits society as a whole, and Advanced Exercise is devoted to helping them get there.
