FITFIGHTER at TRIPLEX training
November 6, 2015 ~ chandler, az ~ featuring brand ambassador matt long
1:00-3:00 PM at Triplex Training. A collaboration between Fitfighter and Triplex Training, Kyle Herrig's sports performance center in Chandler, AZ, this event is open to the public and features the inspiring and jaw-dropping story of Matt Long, former FDNY fireman, Ironman and poster comeback-kid after a should-have-been-fatal bike accident filleted his body and left him fighting for his life, let alone the ability to ever walk again.
Against all odds, Matt returned to one of the greatest human athletic feats, completing the Lake Placid Ironman, and is back in Chandler to tell his story and thank Kyle and Triplex, who helped bring him back to life.
We'll be debuting the Steelhose System with Phoenix area Fire Departments at a Friday afternoon workout, and hosting a blowout circuit training experience Saturday afternoon for the public!! Come on board!!

Fit to Fight: Mechanics of Fire Ground Movements and their Physical Requirements
The first step in building an effective fitness program for a team of occupational athletes is to break down the work required for success, and properly understand the physical requirements for that work. This workshop deep dives into movements on the fire ground, and how to prepare your mind and body to excel at these activities...

Train the Trainer Program
By appointment (call or email us)
Our world class Train the Trainer Session certifies instructors to use Steelhoses safely and effectively within their own Boot Camp sessions, or exclusively with our official 8-part Steelhose Circuit Program – 35 minutes start to finish. Our signature Steelhose training areas focus on Weight-Loaded Movement and Low-Motion Training. Fitness exercises are based on simple firefighter maneuvers outlined in our fireground activity areas shown below.
Instruction on our three ground rules for Steelhose training in a team oriented setting:
- Weight-Load Imbalance
- Burst of Power
The benefits of training with Steelhoses and fireground-based movements:
- Developing stability when loaded with weight – centered and offset
- Training low-motion positions
- Working repetitive motions
- Building grip strength
- Preventing joint-related injuries at the wrist
- Operating in teams
- Pushing individual limits with soft, safe equipment
Outlining simple concepts we use as a training guide for Steelhoses:
- Progressions from lower weight (Auger) to high (Hoss)
- Progressions from low to high reps
- Mix of Repetitive (repeating motions for multiple reps) and Continuous (one of each motion in sequence) Circuits
- Simple to complex and slow to fast movements
