Firefighter's Corner

ProHealthNet, Incorporated has been working with the fire community to improve firefighter health and safety since 1998. We offer educational programs in mental preparation and physical conditioning specific to the demands of both structure and wildland fire suppression.

ProHealthNet utilizes the extensive research from exercise physiology and sport psychology to develop effective training programs for the firefighter. We use research from these disciplines because the similarities between the athlete and the firefighter are many. Primarily, both the athlete and the firefighter are placed in physically demanding environments while under extremely taxing mental conditions. In terms of preparation – nutritional choices, fitness level, or mental training – what works for the athlete will work for the firefighter.
