who is this for?
This programme is suited to serving emergency services personnel who wish to optimise their role-specific physical performance.
Whilst designed specifically for the role map of UK emergency services, following the programme will develop strength, mobility and cardio-vascular conditioning, which is of benefit to all participants regardless of job role.
Do I need to be super fit to follow this programme?
The prescribed exercises within the programme can be scaled to the fitness level of the user, ensuring the appropriate level of challenge for each individual.
To follow the programme you should be familiar with essential movement patterns such as the squat, hinge, lunge and press. Whilst demonstration videos are provided, if you have no previous experience with strength and conditioning programming we recommend utilising an in-person coach initially to develop sound form in these movement patterns.
