Our mission is to prepare you for yours.

We design fitness equipment and workouts to build strength for your everyday mission. The Steelhose and resistance workouts are the perfect training tools for gyms, studios, basements, teams, and training centers.

Getting results when it matters most goes far beyond fitness: it is about physical and mental readiness. Firefighters are the essence of readiness. They are our inspiration.

The Steelhose, our signature weight, is made from real recycled fire hose and reclaimed steel shot, making it the most versatile, durable, and sustainable training tool on the market.

Pick up a hose, try our training. Feel ready.

Buy a hose, help a Veteran. It’s that simple.

We are celebrating military members and first responders as we train you for your own everyday mission. We are honored to sponsor the Stephen Siller T2T Foundation supporting wounded and fallen Veterans, firefighters, police, and their families, but need your help. We are able to turn every 50 foot length of recycled firehose into a $10 donation to this extraordinary organization. It’s a no brainer. Get involved!

Not for looks, for life (of course, a great bod is a key bonus).

From our Founder

FitFighter was born out of my fixation with military training and fire ground movements. Missing the camaraderie and physical demands of Army life, I joined my local volunteer fire department in Huntington, NY. I had immediate respect for this awesome group of professionals. Their technical knowledge, stamina, principles, and pride in their work mirrored my military and collegiate sports careers.

Our equipment and circuits grew out of fitness programs we developed in the firehouse gym. Whether you are an athlete, soldier, coach, parent, firefighter, this system delivers simple, superior equipment and training to your doorstep.

I can’t wait to work with you on your own everyday mission!
