F2T Community


A community of like-minded individuals across the United States and Canada collaborating to improve the health, fitness and overall well-being of fire fighters.

Committed to
Fire Fighters

My quality of life improves each day. I know that when the tones go off or when the time comes to retire, I will be physically and mentally fit for the rest of my life.

I’ve noticed a tremendous change to the departmental culture. The stress levels are down and the comradery has come up. The most important question of the day from the crew has gone from ‘What’s for lunch?’ to ‘What’s the workout?’.

Since becoming more physically active I have noticed a positive change in my mental health. The improvements to my mental health and also my increased capability on the fire ground show me the value of all the work I have put in.

I lost weight, gained energy, and saw an improvement in my family life. These changes fueled a fire me. I promised myself and my crew that I would not go back to being that man again, and I would pay it forward within our department.


Every day countless individuals who are committed to fire fighter well-being, strive towards achieving this mission in their respective communities and places of work. Many of these people are unaware that there are others just like them with the same drive and enthusiasm for fire fighter wellness, whom they could reach out to for support, guidance, inspiration, or mentorship.

The F2T program aims to serve as a platform that brings together this diverse group of individuals while affording them the opportunity to establish personal and professional relationships. In doing so, we also hope to grow the community and strengthen our collective efforts to improve the state of wellness and fitness in the fire service. This page will be dedicated to highlighting the work being done by members of the F2T community as both a way to acknowledge their efforts and to share resources.
