What is the GET FRF (Fire Rescue Fitness) Challenge?
In the fire service we have a physically demanding job and must be ready for it. Fitness is a very serious yet personal topic. We all have things we want to physically achieve and have different reasons for wanting to achieve them. Sometimes we fall off the wagon, sometimes we lose interest in working out, sometimes we lack motivation, and sometimes we realize that “we are not fit for duty” and need to make changes.  

This challenge is about making progress, becoming a better, and a more fit firefighter and person.

I believe that in the next 8-weeks FRF can help guide and motivate you to become a more fit, lean, and strong fire rescue athlete.

The FRF Challenge Can Motivate You!

My name is Aaron Zamzow. I’m a Firefighter/ EMT and Training Officer in Madison Wisconsin and a certified and degreed Personal Fitness Trainer and author. I am the owner of Fire Rescue Fitness (www.FireRescueFitness.com) a company dedicated to creating products and articles focused on keeping Firefighters, EMTs and Paramedics in top physical condition and “fit for duty.”

First and foremost, I am a firefighter/ EMT and have been for over 15 years. I have also been working in the fitness industry as a Fitness Trainer, Strength Coordinator and author for over 25 years. I’ve been fortunate to train with elite athletes for the NBA, NHL, and NFL and have studied under some of the top trainers in the world.

My goal with FRF (Fire Rescue Fitness) is very simple: I am on a mission to transform, motivate, and educate 100,000 firefighters, EMTs and medics to improve their fitness and lives. Over the past 5 years, I have offered my own money to motivate members of the fire service to compete in the 
GET FRF Challenge. I have been floored by the response and by the accomplishments that thousands of firefighters have achieved during these challenges. Each year I spend a couple of weeks going through the entries, reading stories, and reflecting on how I can make this better?

One thing I realized is that the workout programs and resources FRF offers do work (see below)!

The Birth of the "New" GET FRF Challenge and New FRF Workout Programs.

I don’t want you wasting your time looking for a program that doesn’t understand the physical demands of the fire rescue athlete like I did. I don’t want you feeling like you cannot accomplish your task on the fire/rescue scene like I did. I don’t want you to experience the gut busting feeling of a tight uniform and turnouts, like I did. And, and I also don’t want you to ever wonder what you should be eating, like I did. I want you to benefit from my years of mistakes, hardships and research! 

So, I researched, tested and created some of the best Workout Programs for Firefighters, EMTs and Medics.  Then, I added some motivation with the Get FRF Challenge.  And, I am happy to say FRF has awarded over $10,000 in cash, prizes and swag.

FRF Programs work because they include this...
Complete Comprehensive Workout Calendar- Complete Training calendar with daily workout plan that explains what you need to do each day (strength, core, cardio, flexibility, recovery, power, intervals) 
Access to the NEW FRF Training App- FRF has teamed up with TrainHeroic to offer an app that tracks your workouts and allows you to store your workout data all in the app.  You will also be able to post to the feed, see what other athletes are doing, and track your progress.
Versatile and Efficient Workouts- There are different resistance training and cardiovascular workout options to choose from based on your available equipment and level of fitness. There are workouts for the gym, firehouse and home. And, the Get FRF Challenge teaches you how to create your own!
Fireground Movements- This unique workout program includes exercises that improve your performance on and off the fireground. Learn how to effectively integrate climbing, crawling, pushing, pulling and other fireground motions into your workouts.
Easy to follow exercise and workout tutorials- Each exercise and workout has a tutorial sheet that easily explains how to do each workout, exercise, and rep. There are links to video tutorials and additional resources if you have questions. This is a truly “excuse-proof” workout program.
Access to the FRF Private Group and weekly email coaching...
Customized workouts and eating guidelines that will help you accomplish your fitness goals.

Kevin Glover Lost 60lbs!
"When I started the FRF Challenge I weighted 310.3 lbs with a body fat of 36%. I was able to lose over 60 pounds at the end I weighted 243.2 lbs with a body fat of 24.5%!  My health was starting to get in the way of my life and the job was starting to get hard for me. My weight was really starting to slow me down in every aspect of life and the job."

The workouts and the program helped change my health, my career and my life.  Thank You FRF!"

Lisa Charbonneau Got FRF!
“I happened to be on Facebook one day and Fire Rescue Fitness popped up in my newsfeed, I followed the link and found a wall full of different workouts. I followed the page and began trying anything new that was posted. I then saw a post about the Fit for Duty Challenge and after doing some reading about it I was hooked.

After completing the program, my biceps gained one inch of muscle, which I really notice when I raise my arms to put my hair into a pony tail. My abdomen muscles are more defined now, than ever before. When I first started I was able to run 5 km in 38 minutes and now I can run it in 32 minutes.


I really enjoyed the combination exercises; these are nothing like I have ever done before. I notice my endurance in just walking up large sets of stairs is no problem (even when carrying heavy things). I don’t notice the extra weight of my gear and carrying a pack on my back to be a big deal anymore and can work harder and longer before feeling fatigued.

This workout changed my life, I look forward to doing it again with alternative movements, I won’t be caught exercising anymore because I now know that training is what I would rather be doing always changing, always improving. Thanks Aaron and FRF! "

–Lisa Charbonneau


Josh Fulk Lost 50lbs and Got Fit for Duty!
"I tried other workout programs in the past, only to fail and gain back everything I had lost (and even more). I messaged Fire Rescue Fitness Facebook page. Aaron suggested that I do the Challenge, so I did! 
I started the Challenge at  the heaviest I had ever been 424 lbs. at 6’3” height that put me at a BMI of 53.0. As I looked at my before picture of me and my nephew I didn’t see what I wanted to be. I knew something had to change.

So, I printed out the log book and set the start date. I planned the week before starting the workouts to transition into the healthier eating to get my body ready. I noticed my weight dropped right away which motivated my wife to start doing the diet with me which was a big help to my success. One of the best aspects of the Fire Rescue Fitness programs is that each program has a log workbook which shows how to do each exercise and track your workouts (and help motivate you to improve).

After the Challenge, I noticed a lot of healthy improvements. I get a full night’s sleep a lot easier, I wake up ready for the day and not dragging (except when we have those 2 am medical calls but it’s what we do), and I also notice I get fuller faster with the healthier food choices. Most importantly, I have also lost a total of 50lbs now down to 374 lbs! I have also lost over 10% bodyfat have lost over 4 inches in my pants waist. I have a lot of people around me that see my results and as what I am doing. I am quick to tell them my results and direct them to Fire Rescue Fitness. I have tried a lot of programs this is the first that I have ever seen this big of results.
My work is not done, however, as I have already started another workout with Fire Rescue Fitness and see another round of results in my future..  Thanks FRF for the great work out program!"

John Hattrup got Ripped and Improved his Performance on the Fireground!
"I started the workout t 193 lbs. and ended the Challenge at 174 lbs! I lost over 19 pounds and a ton of bodyfat. 

I really enjoyed the mix of cardio sprints and lifting that the Program included. That, along with the better portion control and using a few of the recipes from the included cookbook, really helped me break through the rut I was in. I feel that one of the major results I got from the program was the stretching and emphasis on core work, I noticed I recovered faster with the help of the foam roller and that my lower back became stronger with the core drills.

Thank you Aaron and FRF!"
