We are proud to announce our very first fitness assessment! (F3AP)
We created a fitness assessment you can do at your department that measures health and wellness for everyone. Not only that, you will receive a score so you can measure progress from the previous year.
Here are some FAQ about the assessment:
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
This assessment is 100% free. We created it so you can use it as a tool to measure performance for everyone at your department.
WHAT DOES IT CONSIST OF?
We will measure aerobic capacity, body composition, grip strength, power, muscular endurance, balance and flexibility. You will be given a score for each event so you can get an overall Firefighter Furnace Fitness Assessment Score. The link to the free assessment is at the bottom.
WHEN IS IT?
We will start it on September 7th-9th to be able to cover all shifts. It will also be the workout of the day in both HERO Elite and HERO Ignite for our HERO Athlete Members. (You may sign up as a coach on the website… more info on that later)
WHAT ARE THE NEXT STEPS?
1. You need to discuss it with your chief. The overall decision is his or hers. Show your chief the website and have him or her look over the assessment to see if it is a good fit for your Dept.
2. Join our Facebook community and invite other FF’s to join once you’re in. This is where I will answer any questions on the assessment. I plan to go live next week to discuss more details. Be sure to join the group so you don’t miss anything. The link to that will be on the website (link below)
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO I NEED?
You will only need a stop watch, pull up bar, tape measure and a way to measure distance. That is it! I wanted to make it as simple as possible but an accurate and effective tool to measure overall performance.
Now is the time to plan the assessment for your department. For more info, click the link below and join the FB group.
