No, I don't mean a water hammer.... Get it? Get it? ;) Ok, bad inside joke. All Fire Personnel, please take a moment to finish with the eye rolling before we move on and going forward, I will leave the jokes to the professionals.


It was a productive workout weekend that began with the usual stair climbing routine. And, as promised, here is a short clip of live action footage. Now please be kind with the gimpy facial expression that I can guarantee you, will land me a loving new firehouse nickname.... as if "Cotton Balls" and "Little Legs" weren't special enough!! LOL





The Weekend Warriors crushed another throwback workout to MC Hammer, the Backstreet Boys and the Spice girls, compliments of the one and only Princess DJ H. Oh, and don't let the list on the dry erase board fool you, it was intense. Rachel likes to improvise...... We were sweating buckets and burning some serious calories!



After running a few errands and grabbing a quick bite at Hayfields, the Posse was at it again. Wearing the weighted 16-pound vest, we walked 2.5 miles under an hour. The vest wasn't too bad, that is until going down the tiny hill became the, "Oh my God, are we going up that hill? Just keep talking to me until we are at the top hill." But as with most things in life, when you have the right people around you, encouraging you, anything is possible! You ready for round 2 on Saturday??





Early Sunday morning, the momentum continued at Planet Fitness. Two miles in thirty minutes on a slight incline, followed up with an upper and lower body weight training workout. Really? Did you think that I skipped the stairs at the North Salem Fire Station? Doubters. :)


Tonight, stair climbing and focus on the Ice Rescue Drill. This chick needs a break.


Two wise ex-chiefs once said, "Every journey begins with the first step." Failure is not an option. Let's do this. Stay tuned for Mask Confidence training! #CFFD. GO CHIEFS~
