My name is James Holder; I have been on the operational frontline since 1998, with West Midlands Fire and Rescue Service and have therefore gained a great deal of experience in keeping fit for duty and how important it is to do the right kind of exercise that is specific to firefighting.
I am here to help people become fit and lose weight using the right kind of exercises and training methods that work.
My book, ‘How to Become Firefighter Fit‘ has sold in over 20 countries worldwide and has helped hundreds of people realize their fitness goals.
I believe fitness and exercise should be fun and enjoyable, so the information I provide on this site is aimed at making fitness a part of peoples every day life and not to be regarded as a chore.
Above all else, I am here to help you.
Whether you are a firefighter or not, we can all benefit from improved fitness as this has a dramatic effect on the rest of your life. This fitness section has been designed to provide you with as much information as possible to get you fit.
You can only expect to get out of your training what you put in, so have a look around the new fitness section and see how we can help you.
Good luck with your training, and be sure to check out the fitness section of the community forum which offers a wealth of information, from many people like yourself, who want to get fit!
