Exercise Improves Health And Perfomance Of Nations First Responders

Exercise imporves healthDespite the dangers inherent in their job, the greatest danger to firemen may not be the fires they face but rather the lack of cardiovascular conditioning or strength training in their everyday workout routine.  A study by the National Fire Protection Association showed that half the deaths in the line of duty were caused by heart attacks and not by fire.  Given the stressful and strenuous nature of the job this comes as no surprise, and reinforces the importance of exercise in the life of a first responder.  As a leading distributor of commercial exercise equipment, Advanced Exercise has the privilege of providing fitness equipment for fire and police departments across the country.  In the process we're helping to improve health and job performance across the board.

An increasing number of police and fire departments are becoming aware not only of the importance of exercise but also of tailoring their workouts to suit their job requirements.  At Advanced Exercise, our fitness professionals tailor the equipment our clients choose to their specifi c needs, and police and fire departments are no different.  Each piece of equipment we recommend is built to withstand the usage of this specialized market and provides movements that simulate day to day activities.

Consider the fact that it is not uncommon for firefighters to climb stairs with 50-pound packs on their backs, under extreme temperatures.  It stands to reason then that a Stairclimber is the perfect piece of equipment on which to build stamina for the real thing.  Elliptical machines and other cardiovascular equipment can also help improve general cardiovascular conditioning, while strength training can help strengthen specific muscle groups or movements.  For example our Dual Pulley Machines allow fire fighters to simulate specific job requirements like axe work, body drags, line pulls, and more.  Simply put, the right cardiovascular and strength training equipment are valuable components in building endurance, performance, and longevity.

Equally important in terms of first responder health is the reduction of stress that regular exercise can promote.  This is especially crucial given that the life of a fireman or policeman is a stressful one, with life itself potentially on the line everyday.  By providing a wide variety of in-house exercise options to these departments we can promote the mental and physical rewards of regular exercise and make exercise a part of their work environment and everyday lives.

The work we do with fire and police departments in recommending the right equipment for their needs is a cornerstone of what we do at Advanced Exercise.  Each commercial client has a unique set of needs for their fitness facilities and our fitness experts take the time to understand those needs and match it with the right equipment.
