5-5-5 Fitness is rogue, we are pirates, we are motivated and we mean to create change. As firefighters, emts and paramedics we are also “helpers”. When someone has a problem, they call us, we show up on a big truck and fix the problem. Whatever it may be. Our fixes aren’t always permanent, or perfect, they don’t always go the way we would want them too, however we always try to make a situation better before we leave. So what about when there is a problem from within, a problem no one really wants to make an attempt to fix. A problem you can’t dial 911 to fix, or make rules or standards to fix, or make reflective to fix. Who fixes that? The answer is simple, motivated firefighters with a passion for Family, for Firefighting and for Fitness. That’s how 555 Fitness was born.
The goal at 5-5-5 Firefighter Fitness, Inc. is to help reduce line of duty deaths in the fire service. Historically, approximately 50% of firefighter fatalities can be attributed to cardiac related events. One simple way to achieve this goal is to participate in some type of regular exercise. Therefore, workouts are provided, for free, that are geared toward the rigors of the firefighting profession, weekly on Mondays through Saturdays. The year will be split into three different cycles: strength building, Leanfit, and multi-functional training. The Leanfit and MFT cycles will include four different levels so that regardless of overall fitness, anyone can participate. The year will be split into three different cycles: strength building, Leanfit, and multi-functional training. The Leanfit and MFT cycles will include four different levels so that regardless of overall fitness, anyone can participate. When easy to follow information is provided, the likelihood that more firefighters will participate increases dramatically.
The next endeavor is our Strength is Our Foundation fitness equipment grant program. These grants include fitness equipment that totals over $3,000 worth of equipment. Staff members come out to the winning department and provide coaching on proper use of the equipment.
5-5-5 Firefighter Fitness, Inc. is a 501(c)3, with goal to have a tangible effect on the reduction of line of duty deaths among firefighters by encouraging them to workout and providing needed fitness equipment.
