Fitfighter training uses fire hoses to help firefighters stay in shape

Firefighters have to be fit in order to save lives, so how do they stay in shape?

Joining us on Eyewitness News Sunday Morning were Sarah Apgar, (@sarahapgar), the founder of Fitfighter Training and inventor of the Steelhose system, which uses retired fire hoses as workout equipment, and Matt Long, (@mattslongrun), a competitive athlete and fire fighter.

Fitfighter's Steelhose mimics fireground tools and its circuits target 8 key fire ground maneuver areas.

The F.D.N.Y Fire Academy joined Fitfighter in 2014 to bring Steelhose training to every candidate entering the F.D.N.Y.
