Fitness assessments can provide valuable insight regarding on a fire fighter’s physical abilities, and serve as a guide to make personalized exercise recommendations. But this value will be influenced in part by the administration of the testing battery and the interpretation of the performers’ results. This workshop will highlight considerations to get the most value from the Wellness-Fitness Initiative (WFI) Fitness Assessment. A series of case studies will be used to link specific assessment results with the design and implementation of personalized exercise programs.
