train FOR YOUR FIGHT. TRAIN FOR YOUR LIFE.
Our commitment is to help you. We specialize in LowMotion(TM), Weight-Load Imbalance (WLI), Burst of Power training. These are our ground rules. Our equipment mimics fire ground tools and our circuits target 8 fire ground maneuver areas. F.D.N.Y Fire Academy joined us in 2014 to bring STEELHOSE training to every candidate entering the F.D.N.Y. We'd like for you to come on board.
Competitive athletes use Steelhoses to train their disciplines on the field. Lacrosse players come to us to work the Cardio Burst circuit for strong field movement and acceleration. Whatever the venue, our circuits give athletes an opportunity to cross train under weight-load and in LowMotion, increasing stamina and speed, and reducing injury risk.
Firefighters are killed and injured by musculoskeletal and Exertion-related causes.
Up to a third of military recruits get injured in training qualification schools
Sarah Apgar, Chief Trainer
Army vet, Firefighter / emt, trainer, and all-american collegiate athlete
The Steelhose System was born out of my fixation on Firefighter Fitness. Missing the camaderie and physical demands of Army life, I joined my local volunteer fire department in Huntington, NY. I had immediate respect for this radical group of professionals. Their technical knowledge, stamina, principles, and pride in their work mirrored my memory of military and collegiate sports careers. Fitfighter grew from early days designing fitness training programs in the firehouse gym. Our system delivers simple, superior, accessible, and economical equipment and circuits to firefighters, soldiers, athletes, training academies, and the general public.
