Using the WFI Fitness Assessment to Make Exercise Matter
To truly make exercise matter, we must begin by asking why and understanding what motivates and inspires our fire fighters to exercise – health, safety, performance, quality of life, etc. We must also recognize that every fire fighter, regardless of age, experience, fitness or job status, is unique and needs the capacity to meet the demands of their life. The same exercise program will not work with, nor will it be needed, by every fire fighter. Through a combination of lectures and hands-on activities, attendees will improve their ability to assess, design and implement exercise sessions for fire fighters with varying interests. All attendees will be provided a series of resources to assist with the administration and interpretation of the Wellness-Fitness Initiative (WFI) assessment.
