“CrossFit definitely improved my ability to perform my duties as a professional firefighter both in preparation for physical fitness testing, training as a recruit and on-scene during day-to-day emergency operations. I started really appreciating the difference as my core strength and aerobic capacity increased; both are crucial in my job where heavy lifting, awkward body position, extreme environmental conditions, level of exertion, and repetitive movements can all add up to induce stress on the body. CrossFit takes you that level. You come out of it stronger, able to work safer, less susceptible to injury and confident to survive it all. The functional movements, constant variety and solid results that come with CrossFit enabled me to reach an exceptional level of fitness and motivation way beyond what conventional “gym” exercises could provide.”
