    Just came upon the LEO board and am thrilled y'all have a place meet! Is there a firefighter board as well? Forgive me if there is, I didn't see it listed on the board page.

    Start running, doing 250 pushups a day, and 250 situps a day. Academy is going to be hell. On the plus side, you will be skinny and ripped when you leave academy. I was 145# 28" waist and a 44" chest.

    Definitely don’t want to show up out of shape, Phoenix Fire Dept has pre-academy for several weeks to ensure recruits are physically able to accomplish skills. It is basically skills courses in full gear to get acclimated prior to their academy start date. Hiking and running hills, or dragging tires is also a great way to get cardio ready.
