555 Fitness Gear
The goal at 5-5-5 Firefighter Fitness, Inc. is to help reduce line of duty deaths in the fire service. Historically, over 50% of firefighter fatalities can be attributed to cardiac related events. One simple way to lower this number is to have firefighter participate in some type of regular physical activity . Therefore, workouts are provided, for free, that are geared toward the rigors of the firefighting profession, but can be done by anyone. When easy to follow information is provided, the likelihood that more firefighters will participate increases dramatically.
A portion of all proceeds is donated to the 5-5-5 Strength is Our Foundation program. The 5-5-5 “Strength is Our Foundation” Grant Program provides Career, Volunteer and Combination Fire Departments across the country workout equipment, apparel and products. Each department receives a functional fitness equipment package totaling over $3000 and includes items like a Concept 2 rower, Assault air bike, sandbags, squat stand, barbells, weights along with wellness products including topical healing creams, recovery beverages and supplements.
