Important Safety Information

If you are in any doubt about your health or physical ability to exercise, you should consult your doctor before commencing any physical training programme. This is especially important if you are (or think you might be) pregnant, if your health status has recently changed, or have not exercised for the last six months or have had a recent illness or injury.

Remember there are no quick ways to develop good general fitness levels. You must progress slowly and gradually by following a structured training programme to reach your goal.

The FireFit programme has been sponsored by Think Active and Sport England with ‘Tackling Inequalities funding’ from the National Lottery to help reduce the negative impact of COVID-19 and the widening of the inequalities in sport, physical activity and exercise.
