first responders

When you're a first responder, life changes in an instant. And when a lazy afternoon turns into a 211 or a hot response, no one gets a prize for second place. Life Fitness has the solutions to give first responders a critical edge: tactical strength and conditioning, career longevity, and the chance to save more lives.

 For firefighters, police officers and EMTs, the challenge is usually physical. Whether scaling a ladder in heavy turnout gear, bolting out of a squad car, or sprinting behind a gurney, health and conditioning gets the job done and enhances the safety of everyone involved. Life Fitness supports these goals, and offers the equipment and strategy to improve lives  before and after the sirens blare.

Studies Have Shown 

that 50% of injuries suffered during fireground operations are strains, sprains or muscular pain. Furthermore, 38% of on-the-job injuries suffered by EMS workers are caused by body reaction or exertion.


The Takeaway

Injury prevention, especially with first responders, begins with health and conditioning. When you throw yourself into danger on a daily basis, you need to train for every contingency and come to work protected. As the global leader, Life Fitness has durable, innovative equipment that helps first responders perform better and stay on the job  for the long haul.

Unrivaled Fitness Equipment

Cardiovascular endurance is a key factor for getting in and out of dangerous situations, and strength is critical for protecting oneself and others. Our cardio equipment can be pushed as far as your first responders can take it, and our benches and racks are rugged, reliable and biomechanically sound. Whichever products you choose, know that they will be a long-term and trusted addition to your facility.


Tactical Strength and Conditioning

How many pounds your first responders can squat isn't important, but their ability to optimize physical job performance is. That's why Life Fitness can help you construct the ideal facility to bring core strength and functional fitness to the forefront. In an environment exclusive to first responders, we recommend the Ground Base series and Hammer Strength racks for strength, the SYNRGY360 for agility, and our full line of cardio equipment for endurance.
