Train for duty. Train for life.
Athletes’ Performance's firefighter performance training isn't just about making you stronger. It can also help you become quicker, more agile, and reduce your risk of injury. As a firefighter, you never know the situation you'll be facing. The physical demands on your body, at any moment, can be tremendous. Using an integrated system that incorporates firefighter-specific movement training with nutrition and recovery strategies, firefighters prepare for the daily physical stresses of duty, while also decreasing their potential for injury.

An integrated training system incorporates performance training, nutrition, and physical therapy to meet the demands and rigors of being a firefighter. Combining strength, speed, agility, and flexibility with proper nutrition and recovery strategies is essential to being able to perform the necessary duties and responsibilities of the job, while also decreasing the potential for injury and eliminating everyday aches and pains.

"I had a once-in-a-lifetime experience training at Athletes' Performance. I got stronger and learned about proper movement. I move differently from when I started. I can tell a difference at work and everyday life."
—Lincoln Mixson, Pensacola firefighter
