Fitness students are working in groups to conduct baseline fitness tests and musculoskeletal assessments, which will help prepare the firefighter students with the fitness testing that is required in their program.

This opportunity allows the Fitness students to apply what they have learned in class and also provides support to the Pre-Service Firefighter students who will undergo fitness testing in the future.

 According to Fitness instructor Fabian Rayne, “This experience is very rewarding as it will give [students] the opportunity to work with a specific group of Pre-Service Firefighter students preparing to pass their fitness training test.”
