I created the Firefighter Furnace HERO Elite Training Program to do my part in eliminating the growing issue of heart disease and obesity within our firefighter community. 

Our goal is to help anyone who struggles with weight, body fat, strength and performance by giving you the only tool you need to reach elite firefighter fitness. 

HERO Elite was not designed to help you reach a small goal just for you to go right back into the same routine. Our mission is to provide you with an advanced firefighter training program that wont only help you with on-scene performance but with help pave the way for complete health and wellness

I want to invite you into our community of motivated firefighters so you too can experience a total transformation.

How Often Is HERO Elite Open?

We only open the doors to HERO Elite 4x per year. We utilize 12-week cycles that are created to improve your strength, stamina and endurance. At the beginning of each cycle we establish a baseline, work towards improving and re-test at the end. The reason we close in the middle is so that we can focus our attention on percentages. For example, if you decided to join in the middle of the cycle, the percentage for a particular lift may be dangerous to attempt. We increase weight and intensity throughout the cycle to help you at a fast but safe pace.

What Makes HERO Elite Different?

I understand what kind of strength and endurance it takes to be a firefighter. I incorporated different exercises that will not only help you with on-scene performance but pave the way to improving your quality of life. What is more important in terms of firefighter fitness, curling a 45lb dumbbell or running a 7-minute mile with a 45lb dumbbell in your hand?

What Equipment Will I Need?

We don’t use machines, we build them. That being said, the only equipment you will need it a barbell, weights, dumbbells, a bench, a place to run and do pull ups. The basics are the basics for a reason, they work. We also understand that not all fire departments have every piece of equipment out there.

What Fitness Level Do I Need To Be In?

All levels of fitness are welcome to HERO Elite. You are able to modify weight and scale reps as needed and still get the same level of intensity required to improve. On top of that, we have two mobility routines a week designed to help you with areas you struggle with such as squat depth or knee and shoulder pain.

In order to succeed, you must challenge yourself every single day. Focus on one workout at a time and stay consistent. That is where the results will come from.

Remember, it doesn’t matter where you started, it’s where you’re going that’s important.

It's the prefect combination of functional fitness and traditional body building we need as firefighters!
