We are leading an innovative charge to improve fire fighter health and wellness by launching the FIT TO THRIVE (F2T) program.
Born as an extension of the IAFF/IAFC Peer Fitness Trainer (PFT) program, F2T is designed to support the IAFF/IAFC Fire Service Joint Labor Management Wellness-Fitness Initiative (WFI) by helping more fire fighters be more active, more often so they can experience the benefits of regular exercise. It is comprehensive, inclusive, accessible and focused on behavior change.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has affected every aspect of our lives. You continue to serve your communities on the frontline but have also been asked to make unprecedented changes to your lifestyle, family routines and daily activities.
Given the wide-ranging benefits that regular exercise can have on our physical, emotional and mental health, it is critical to stay connected and continue to support, motivate and challenge each other to stay safe, stay healthy and stay active.
These IAFF resources on exercise, nutrition and resilience – found on our COVID-19 resource page – can help.
We have resumed scheduling in-person F2T courses and we continue to offer the virtual F2T 101: Fitness Principles and Practice (PFT certificate) course. Please find the F2T 101 Course Overview here and reference the F2T 101 Course FAQs here for additional information.
