Product Description

Dr. Michael Ross DC, CSCS, USA Weightlifting Sports Performance Coach, USA Triathlon Coach, CrossFit Endurance and Level I Coach, and 5 time Ironman Finisher, is a full-time 15 year veteran of the Seattle Fire Department. He designed this workout not as an ego-based vomit-level workout, but rather as an effective tool that firefighters, and others, can use easily on-shift and with minimal equipment. The cold hard fact is that in Seattle 30% of Firefighters are obese, and 40% of them have a dangerously low VO2max. Terrible aerobic fitness and obese. That is a scary proposition for a job which loses more Firefighters each year to health related issues than job related dangers. This workout is deceptively challenging for ALL levels of fitness, but is specifically aimed at getting people into, and staying, in decent shape. No, you will not win the CrossFit games by doing this video regularly, but you will get a workout that challenges your cardio-vascular, muscular endurance, and agility capacity. Plain and simple, Dr. Ross made this DVD to be an effective maintenance workout for most Fiirefighters and unfortunately it is a very, very challenging workout for a significant number of Firefighters already on the job.

This is an incredible workout. It seems so deceptively simple. Exercise for 45 seconds and then recover for 20 seconds. However, this is an intense and grueling and demanding workout. It literally kicks "booty". I couldn't complete the whole 45 seconds on a lot of them...and when the instructor says you will feel it in 48 hours (he's lying...you feel it the next day) you will really feel it. I am not trying to be a firefighter; I just want to get in shape, but this is a great workout and I highly recommend this for someone who wants an effective, intense cardio workout. One thing I didn't quite like about it was that there is no warmup or cooldown. However, this is minor, I warmup and cooldown on the treadmill before and after the workout.
Some have said they don't like the friendly "banter" from the leader in the workout, but trust me, you won't even hear it half the time. You will be concentrating so hard on the correct movement, balance, or trying to keep from passing out from the sheer intenseness of it that you won't notice. The four people in the background must be in incredible shape, however you can see that it even gets to them sometimes. I like the fact that they are in loose tee shirts and loose shorts. They are there to workout, not be eye candy.
So, order this without delay. You won't regret it.

Man, was I surprised! I have tried other "firefighter workouts" and they were not really much of a workout. I did this one without a medicine ball the first couple times just to try it out. It kicked my butt. I was sore for 3 days. Initially, some points were hard to keep up with and that got a little frustrating, but after doing the workout the second or third time I was able to keep up just fine. Surprised me with the balance exercises, those were freakin' hard!

Great follow along workout. I am taking it to work next shift!

Great workout! I have done it 6 times now and I am still sore 2 days afterwards. There are great exercises here and while watching (not doing the workout) may LOOK easy, it is absolutely a kicker! The exercises are very much work related. It is designed to keep your posture while bending, reaching and extending with the medicine ball. I'd recommend it not just to firefighters, but to any athlete. This is a good workout.

Verified Purchase
I had gotten this DVD for my boyfriend who is an aspiring firefighter and in the hiring process with a couple of different departments. I recently started getting on him about getting his fitness level up to par since if he does end up getting a call, he could easily get kicked out for not being at the department's standard (I also convinced him to start running since they do a lot of that). When I got the DVD for him I watched him do it a couple of times and sorta made fun of him for finding it so difficult. I do workout videos all the time and while I get tired I don't get nearly as tired as he was (and he makes fun of me for doing the ones I do so it wasn't out of spite - it was a friendly banter we have going on). I would then joke about how he was having trouble walking the next day since this DVD uses a lot of the stabilizer muscles that don't normally get worked out very often (again, he makes fun of me when I can't walk either - it's just our relationship). Anyway, I took the DVD and tried it myself since I figured it couldn't nearly be as difficult as it looks and I was very, very wrong! As others have said, it is deceptively simple and when you watch it you think that it will be easy, but when you're doing it, you find yourself getting tired fairly quickly. It kinda runs as a personal trainer-type video. You do something for 45 seconds, you rest for 20 and then you move on to the next exercise. I had to modify the plank pushup because of my wrist issues and actually ended up just doing a plank on my elbows for 45 seconds. I think next time I will try a plank with leg raises. Trust the other reviewers - this is definitely a workout and definitely worth it!Read more ›
