We took pride in our physical training at the department I worked at for 22 Years. Working out was part of our regular shift, along with regular fire department training and emergency’s. A lot of us worked out on our days off. Others took it a step further and competed in the fireman Olympics. Firefighter Robert Verhelst of Waunakee, Wisconsin, has broken the record for the most Ironman 70.3 races completed in one year, according to Guinness World Records. Robert takes it to a whole new level. Check out this video about his accomplishments (below) from Fire Engineering and the article below that from the Guiness Book of World Records.
These are the kind of stories that people don’t know about firefighters and they should. You can start your Legacy here www,LegacyLaunchers.com. In your honer.
