HIIT TRAINING HELPS FIREFIGHTERS SAVE LIVES

HIIT TRAINING HELPS FIREFIGHTERS SAVE LIVES

To effectively do their job – and ultimately save lives – firefighters must have the strength and endurance to carry heavy equipment up stairs and in intense heat! In order to stay fit and strong throughout their careers, they need to maintain a disciplined fitness routine.

Firefighter training on the StairMaster HIITMill machine

Typically when training at the station, firefighters set up a prowler and push it across the floor. But with StairMaster’s HIITMill series they can achieve the same results without the need for distance.

Firefighters can now push, drive and sprint with the resistance of a sled, safely and with a smaller footprint. These easy to use tools allow users to drive up metabolic intensity and make for a more space efficient solution to alternative training methods.

StairMaster’s High-Intensity machines deliver an effective resistance training platform that captures the benefits of speed and agility training, lateral training and sled training – all essential in the work of firefighters.

Unlike a standard treadmill, HIITMill series machines are self-powered speed and strength training tools designed to build explosive power when used in a High-Intensity Interval Training program.

With the X model, firefighters can also perform an even or uneven Farmer’s Carry without having to walk any distance at all. This is great preparation for all those times when they’re carrying e-drolics in one hand and a lightweight pike pole in the other.

Another feature of the HIITMill? Users can adjust the resistance by moving the lever to release or add tension. No more having to stop to take away or add plates between users!

Gear up for one tough and rewarding HIIT workout that your firefighting team will love to hate!  For more information about the StairMaster HIIT series, contact our sales team today.
