Because the fire ground can be an unpredictable, physically demanding and highly chaotic environment, fire fighters must be adaptable and resilient. In fact, rarely are we given an opportunity to perform any task in the exact same way multiple times and therefore fire fighters need the capacity to perform in a range of conditions. Deliberately performing exercises in a variety of contexts, or ‘repetition without repetition’ can be used to help anyone prepare for the demands of work, life and play. This workshop will highlight the relevance of movement variability and provide practical exercise-based strategies that can improve the way that fire fighters move move when in matters most. Come prepared to be active!
This workshop involves active participation – attendees should come prepared to move and ensure they have approximately 25 sq/ft of open space in view of the camera. No specific equipment is required, but having access to bands and a dumbbell or kettlebell is recommended.
