“I have to say this is the best fitness product that I have ever come across for our job. All of the workouts fit in perfectly with the movements that we do. I have always worked out but never had any true guidance or plan for improvement, but the train heroic app motivates me every day and I am excited to try out the next days workout. Also seeing the interaction between members, motivating each other, and sending some knowledge each other’s way is another great aspect of this product. The community is worth more than anything”
“This program is seriously one of the best programs I have ever been a part of! I have been active all my life all the way up to playing college football and this is the best shape I have ever been in! With the direction of Donny and Hero Elite community I have learned to be able to push my body past my mind. This program has made me mentally and physically tough, it has also shown me I still have a long ways to go to get where I want to be but I am now WILLING TO DO WHAT IT TAKES TO GET THERE”

“This programming has been so helpful in finding consistency. I love the flexibility of being able to switch the workout days since they are programmed every week, and find the workouts that are easier for me to do on shift. The concentration that Donny puts on grip strength, core and flexibility has personally been my favorite part of the program. I love the leaderboard and competing with other firefighters as well as track my own progress. No matter what your fitness level is, be prepared for this program to challenge you mentally and physically”
“I had tried many other programs that were designed for firefighters. None of which I thought quite prepared me for the job. As many of you know firefighting can be very demanding at times. Firefighters need to have strength, endurance, and flexibility when it matters. I truly believe this program helps prepare firefighters in all these categories. Since I started this program I have noticed a big difference not only in the weight room where I have PR’d all my lifts but also in the field when running calls. I have really enjoyed this program”
hero athlete membership benefits
Ignite Fat loss
Reducing your body fat percentage is important for health, performance and confidence. The more you lose the better you’ll feel, look and perform. Once we get you to a good percentage, that is when we will work on fine tuning your engine.
INcrease on-scene performance
Fitness is more than lifting weights. We must utilize all energy systems to increase overall performance building you into a more well rounded firefighter/athlete. This program will help you excel at your strengths and work on weaknesses at the same time.
Mobility and posture are crucial because they help you perform while supporting injury prevention. Our mobility sessions will help fix any issues you have as well as prevent future incidents, so you can be at your best and achieve peak on-scene performance.
Supplying your heart and lungs with oxygen-rich blood is essential to health and wellness. That is why cardiovascular endurance is so critical. Our programs will help build your engine while producing stronger and longer work on the fire ground.
Being a firefighter requires a different kind of strength. Why? Because we lift, pull, drag, and carry heavy objects in awkward positions. That’s a fundamental part of the job. Our focus is on making you a well-rounded firefighter so you can handle any task.
We have everything laid out for you so you can stay consistent in your training. With a week of workouts in advance and the support of the community, you should not have a problem getting your workout in for the day. We train together as a family.
Meet your training coach
I have had a passion in fitness and nutrition form an early age. Since then I have held multiple personal training certifications up to an elite level. I was a physical training leader within the U.S. Air Force helping members pass their PT tests. I then became a crossfit coach and even worked as a strength and conditioning coordinator for professional sports teams in Atlanta that led me to starting Firefighter Furnace in 2015.
Since then we have helped thousands of firefighters reach their goals and transform their lives through the same method used in these programs. Right now you have a unique opportunity to change your life today and become part of our HERO Athlete team.

What equipment do I need?
What separates us from other programs is that we only use basic equipment because we want our approach to be highly accessible and convenient. All you need for HERO Elite is a barbell, weights, dumbbells a place to run and do pull ups. If we program exercises beyond that, we give you alternatives with the basics mentioned above. For example, if we ask you to do KB swings, we will show you how to do it with a dumbbell.
HERO Ignite will only require you to use your own body weight. This does require a pull up bar that you can easily buy or substitute for another exercise.
HERO Comp requires the typical box equipment. You already know what this is if you’re choosing this program. We will gladly modify the movements if you do not have the equipment.
What fitness level do i need to be in?
All fitness levels are welcome in our HERO Athlete Membership. It doesn’t matter if you’re starting from scratch or have already been working out for 20 years. These workouts will challenge you helping you build an elite level of fitness required to do our job. We post scaled options for most workouts meaning you can scale down the intensity until you can do all tasks as prescribed.
It doesn’t matter where you are now, all that matters is where you believe you’re going.
How long do the workouts take?
On average you can get done with a session in less than an hour. Some days will be short and others will be long, just like our calls. However, you have to make fitness a priority with our jobs. We post a week in advance so you can tailor it around your own unique schedule.
Compare time set aside for fitness to the time scrolling the internet.
What if i don't have time?
I want you to really think about how important it is to make fitness a normal part of our lives, especially for us. Instead of saying “I don’t have time to workout” try saying “it’s not a priority” and see how it feels. Use that to motivate you to make fitness a normal part of your life.
It’s not about having time, it’s about making time for your health
We want you to experience the whole HERO Athlete Membership before fully committing. If you decide it’s not for you, we will cancel your membership, no questions asked. There is no contract. We will also point you in the right direction based on what your goals are.
