HOT SPRINGS — The Hot Springs Fire Department has requested changes to its physical fitness test for new hires, telling the Public Service Commission that some elements of the current test do not simulate the physical demands of the firefighting field. ‘fire.

Applicants must pass physical and written tests before they can be interviewed by the commission, which ranks applicants. The state code empowers the commission to make rules and regulations for the city’s civil service system, including adopting rules for physical examinations.

Changes requested at the August meeting of the commission included the addition of a deadweight/drag, replacing the 125-pound barbell carry. Instead of carrying a 100-foot bar, candidates should move a 160-pound casualty simulator that distance.

The Keizer Sled would replace the curvature of the waist. Fire Chief Ed Davis told the commission that many departments use the simulated forced-entry hashing device to test candidates’ proficiency with an axe. They straddle a weighted beam and use a hammer to ram the beam behind them.

“If you’ve never been in a fire department, you can still do these things,” Davis told the commission. “The one thing we didn’t want to do was put firefighting elements into it that people didn’t know how to perform.”

Candidates would have two minutes and 30 seconds to complete the Dead Weight Carry/Drag, Keizer Sled, and Beam Walk. The latter requires a 3-inch coiled pipe to be carried 20 feet through a 4-inch beam. The department’s new hires committee told the commission that several city firefighters completed all three items in just over a minute on average, even after running nearly a mile previously.

Candidates must run 1.5 miles in 13 minutes, do 35 sit-ups and 25 push-ups. After a two-minute break, they begin the back half of the test, which also includes climbing and descending a 58-foot aerial ladder angled at a 60-degree angle in four minutes.

“Running, push-ups and sit-ups bring people to the point of exhaustion,” Davis told the commission. “When they’re exhausted, if they can perform those basic functions, they’ll be fine. I wish we could set a building on fire, and they could walk through it and get to that point of exhaustion and demonstrate that this way, but it’s just not practical.”

Davis said he and his command team lost weight to demonstrate the importance of maintaining physical fitness.

“We all did things to try to be a good example,” he told the commission. “I’m almost 60 and I still run three times a week. We try to set a good example for the people below us.”

Inter’s defensive compactness and fitness are already on the move after a slow start to pre-season, according to Italian media https://opendooryouthcenter.org/inters-defensive-compactness-and-fitness-are-already-on-the-move-after-a-slow-start-to-pre-season-according-to-italian-media/ Sun, 21 Aug 2022 13:41:26 +0000 https://opendooryouthcenter.org/inters-defensive-compactness-and-fitness-are-already-on-the-move-after-a-slow-start-to-pre-season-according-to-italian-media/ Inter are already starting to show a lot more of what they can do after a slow start to pre-season if their 3-0 Serie A win over Spezia was anything to go by.

Inter are already starting to show a lot more of what they can do after a slow start to pre-season if their 3-0 Serie A win over Spezia was anything to go by.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome’s Corriere dello Sport, which hailed the Nerazzurri’s defensive compactness and obvious improvement in their physical condition from a more sloppy win over Lecce in their Champions League fixture. season opener.

Inter had secured all three points in their Serie A opener at Lecce, but they needed a last-minute winner from Denzel Dumfries to do so, and it was still obvious that improvements would be needed.

Coach Simone Inzaghi admitted as much, stressing that the team should use the week to make a big leap forward in terms of fitness and tactical cohesion.

The coach has always been clear that he feels part of the reason for the Nerazzurri’s slow start to pre-season was that their preparations started a bit later than many other teams, especially with new players. many key players in their starting XI returning to training late after an extended break due to international duty.

The pre-season cobwebs hadn’t seemed to have been shaken in Inter’s Serie A opener against Lecce, and so their second game of the season against Spezia was always going to be a test for whether the team could do without their two most enduring preseason issues, a lack of defensive compactness and a sense that they were at least half a step off the pace physically.

The Nerazzurri’s display against Spezia was a very encouraging sign, given that the team saw the game concede just two shots to the Ligurians, neither of which forced a save from Samir Handanovic, as they converted their dominance of possession in three goals.

The season has barely started but the feeling from Inter’s win over Spezia is that they are much further into the season than they were just a week ago against Lecce .

New Dorp Beach resident Anthony Camerada prides himself on being physically fit, and that was evident throughout his trials at the FDNY Fire Academy for incoming firefighters. Camerada, 25, was named the recipient of the academy’s fitness award, given to the graduate who displays the highest combined scores on the 19-week program’s functional skills training tests.

Trials include rigorous obstacle courses, push-ups, sit-ups, pull-ups, and a 1.5-mile run, in addition to other tests.

“The Academy’s FDNY fitness unit instructors were motivating and pushed us to do our best every day. A team is only as strong as its weakest link and in the fire department we always work as a team,” noted Camerada, who previously worked as an NYPD and MTA officer, as well as a member of the Coast Guard. American.

Camerada, who was a baseball player at New Dorp HS and St. Joseph’s College, is also an active member of the local road running community.

Camera has already completed the New York City Marathon.

“Fitness has always been a huge part of my life,” he said. “I served in the US Coast Guard and the focus was also on fitness. I enjoy cross-training, cycling and recently ran the New York City Marathon.

“Being in good physical condition is so important as a firefighter; this not only benefits the public we serve, but also those who work side-by-side with you to get the job done,” Camerada added. “In my mind, I knew I would be able to be an asset to the department and apply my skills and experiences to really make a difference.”

He will put his skills to good use when he comes into force at work, where he will be stationed on Staten Island. For him, serving New York is a dream job.

“As far back as I can remember, I always knew I wanted to be a first responder and dedicate my life to helping others,” Camerada said. “The selfless attributes instilled in me by my loving parents growing up motivated me to always follow my dreams, to do the right thing (even when no one is looking), to give everything I do in my 100% effort, and above all, remain humble.

“The training I received was like no other, and there is a clear reason why the department is highly recognized and respected around the world,” he concluded. “I would especially like to thank my family and friends – without their constant, strong and encouraging support, I would not be where I am today.”

Damon Vincent, owner of Unique Health & Fitness (currently renamed TrainUnique) in Lafayette joins Discover Lafayette to share his passion for helping others. Damon has dedicated his professional career to helping athletes with special needs.

26-year-old Damon grew up with congenital adrenal hyperplasia, a condition that prevents the adrenal glands from producing enough cortisol. While his parents allowed him to have a normal life playing football, wrestling and riding a mountain bike, he was still on medication and had to carry a medical alert. He was “determined to surpass himself” and did not want his condition to hold him back. The experience shaped Damon’s mindset and he follows his personal and professional calling to empower others, especially people with special needs.

His work with people from all walks of life led him to partner with the DREAMS Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing opportunities for people with special needs. In August 2020, Damon opened Unique Health and Fitness, Louisiana’s first and only fitness and health center dedicated to unique people. DREAMS founder Donielle Watkins helped Damon launch Unique Fitness; today, all meetings, arts programs, cheering practices, etc. of DREAMS take place in the establishment. “We couldn’t have started without the help of Donielle and DREAMS.”

“I was blessed to find my calling from a very young age. I wanted to provide a place to belong in a community that was really about the communal aspect of wellness together. It’s a group of people who come together with the same end goal in mind, to be fitter, healthier and more independent.I’m a fitness professional and that’s how I know how to do this….at the gym. community and self-improvement mission.Always strive, never give up.

Damon says of this special population (which may include people with cerebral palsy, spina bifida, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, amputations, autism and Down syndrome), “These are champions on their own. These individuals already have it mentally. They have fought all their lives. They had to work so hard all their lives and couldn’t find excuses. So when they step into the gym, it’s about equipping them with the tools and opportunities to make it shine. That’s why I love it so much! It’s different from working with the general population.

Damon provides a professional, comprehensive fitness solution designed for anyone who needs a unique approach to fitness for their cognitive or physical needs. He wants to see people move and be fit all their lives. Damon mentioned that while there are generally many therapies available for children, once a person reaches adolescence and enters adulthood, those opportunities can diminish. The gym is a place where “unique people can move and stay fit for a lifetime.”

You won’t see any weight machines at this gym, as the lack of neuromuscular engagement associated with the machines is not helpful for people with special needs. Free weights provide optimal resistance training and give athletes the ability to learn to control their movements. It also makes athletes stronger and gives them the independence to lift themselves up, go to festivals, hang out and enjoy life. Flexibility and cardiovascular fitness are also targeted.

Athletes recently enjoyed participating in the club’s “One Olympics” and there were serious competitions are held in categories such as martial arts, weightlifting moves, farmer’s races, and more. Damon says family members were shocked and impressed when they saw how much the athletes pushed themselves to compete.

Damon’s new facility at 133 Digby Avenue in Lafayette, in partnership with Gladiators Acadamy of Lafayette, opens August 15, 2022 and is a state-of-the-art training facility. Gladiators Academy’s Tim Credeur approached Damon to be a partner; the men knew each other through MMA as Tim trains Damon. “Tim is legendary and has the best martial arts academy in the state,” says Damon. It will provide a wonderful opportunity to offer both MMA for elite fighters and physical training for unique individuals under one roof.

Damon is also a professional mixed martial arts fighter and recently won his third title by defeating Cody Jenkins via first-round submission at an event held at the Heymann Center. For those unfamiliar with MMA, anything goes as competitors combine techniques from boxing, wrestling, judo, jujitsu, karate, Muay Thai (Thai boxing) and other disciplines. Wild and woolly….MMA is a boundless sport that taxes individuals on the brink.

Damon and his wife, Catherine, have a beautiful family. Sons Bruce and Amos watch over the newest member of the Vincent family, little Charlotte, who just turned three weeks old on Wednesday.

Discover Lafayette would like to thank Alice Landry for reaching out to showcase the work of Damon Vincent. She wrote: “My son, Hugo, has been in the gym for about 6 months, and in that short time Hugo has gotten physically stronger, but more importantly, he’s part of something. It’s hard to sum up in words what inclusion means to someone with special needs. It’s magic. Damon and his family make me proud to live in Acadiana.

Damon Vincent’s faith, drive and love for others is truly inspiring. Best wishes, Damon, for a bright and successful future!

Athleisure is a term to describe hybrid clothing, designed to be suitable for both exercise and everyday wear. With people becoming more concerned about staying fit and healthy these days, the demand for Athleisure is increasing. IBNS correspondent Supriyo Hazra catches up Ujjawal Asthana, co-founder, Zymrat, to learn about the future of the segment and his company. Excerpts:

Tell us about the current athleisure activity in India?

The sportswear market has taken off as the pandemic puts more emphasis on physical fitness, and it is expected to continue growing even after the outbreak. Athleisure, one of the fastest growing apparel markets, is expanding beyond metropolises as companies eye up empirical retail. Almost every athletics company now offers a collection of athleisure or sportswear, with well-known names leading the pack. Several new brands and direct-to-consumer companies also used the internet to boost sales during the pandemic years. To expand into Tier II and Tier III cities, we are also opening experience stores in 2022. During the pandemic, the segment has grown around 15% and this year it is expected to grow at a similar. The entire Indian athleisure market is estimated at around Rs 54,000 crore by analysts.

Why did you start a tech-focused athleisure brand?

I don’t come from a fashion or textile background. Prior to founding Zymrat, I ran a technology consulting firm as CEO, where I built servers and software for Fortune 500 companies and YC-funded startups. I was constantly preoccupied with my work, mindless eating, drinking at restaurants, and other activities during this time. In the end, I gained a lot of weight, which was not only bad for my appearance but also for my health. I went to the doctor one day and found out I had high blood pressure, hypothyroidism, and pre-diabetic symptoms. I then went to the gym and did not look back. I developed a strong connection with the industry during this time and felt some of my issues resonated with the community, which inspired me to start Zymrat. To represent consumer performance, Zymrat has become a performance driven brand and in order to match the quality of other premium international brands in the market, we have integrated technology into our performance apparel.

Which city has seen significant growth in your products?

Currently, Zymrat covers around one-fifth of India, but its goal is to increase its visibility five-fold in important markets. The outbreak has given the company the edge and bolstered its growth, with consumer preferences rapidly shifting from offline to online purchases. So half of Zymrat’s orders go to India’s top 30 cities, and the other half goes to the rest of the nation. In this fiscal year, we plan to move from direct-to-consumer sales to experience retailers. Using an omnichannel approach, we set up a Zymrat Experience Store at Garuda Mall in Bangalore to showcase our products and allow consumers to experience them.

What age group is your target consumer?

Our men’s athleisure range is aimed at people between the ages of 20 and 45, as we believe this age range is when people are most active and aware of choosing fitness activities.

How are Zymrat’s products different from other popular brands in the segment such as Nike or Reebok?

Zymrat thrives on innovation and collaboration, which has allowed us to create technology IPs like SuperSilva and TBC. These trademarks are designed to solve problems found only in India, and thus help to improve the performance of the fitness community as a whole. Solve odor (anti-stench) with SuperSilva, solve butt and cheek syndrome with TBC, solve weight with Centurion (India’s lightest running t-shirt) or solve breathability with SuperVent. Every one of our products is designed to solve problems (through technology), unlike other performance apparel brands, international or otherwise.

Since the preponderance of innovation at Zymrat is driven by validation from community members, one of the issues considered was that people sweat a lot during exercise. When a soft fabric rubs against sweat, it begins to stick to the skin and can get caught in the buttocks, among other places. To ensure that the fabric stays away from your skin no matter how much you sweat, we considered a specialized knit structure. Ball Cooling Shorts, one of Zymrat’s best-known products on our site, and SuperVent are two signature fabrics we’ve designed. The SuperVent brand maximizes airflow and helps unlock peak performance, which makes us (Zymrat) unique.

Say how technology and fitness converge with the designs you’ve created?

3D knitted vents and a thin layer of moisture-wicking material make up SuperVent technology. These vents allow the fabric to draw in cool air while releasing body heat as the user moves. Perspiration is dispersed throughout the fabric by the feather-light layer and is evaporated by the 3D vents. For example, the brand’s latest launch, SuperVent is the combination of technical fabrics and technology to enable 10x breathability. Ventilation is a common problem faced by the fitness community which limits movement and therefore overall performance. Using the 3D knit structure of our SuperVent line, we’ve managed to create mini air pockets that allow for supreme breathability throughout your routine, empowering positive athletes across the country to perform better, longer. The fabric itself in the raw material is one of the most important deviations, and includes technology and processing in the garment manufacturing process.

How do you plan to grow your business in the next five years?

Zymrat is shaking up the norm in multiple categories including athleisure, sportswear and performance intensive. It is a leading product producer with top-notch intellectual properties and a focus on premium raw materials. Our revolutionary performance fabric gained instant recognition across India with a 40% repeat rate.

Over the next few months, we aim to introduce 30 new SKUs, challenging the status quo in many categories such as athleisure, sportswear and intensive performance. Zymrat’s industry-leading 75% retention rate (unheard of) in the apparel/sportswear market contributes significantly to the company’s success, and the brand expects to generate revenue of INR 60 crore by the end of FY2023. We also have a fantastic product-market fit in the premium segment, with an AOV of Rs 2400 and an ASP of Rs 1700.

What is the future of the sportswear segment with increasingly health conscious people?

Promoting performance apparel for today’s energetic, active and fitness-conscious lifestyle is a popular trend in 2022. hiking, biking, yoga and sports and advising them to feel at home. comfortable while doing it. The global advanced athleisure market is worth $411.02 billion in 2022, and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.9% by 2028. It’s no surprise that one of the most lucrative industries in the world is athleisure, and the most successful performance clothing. labels have recognized micro and macro developments that have led to the creation of new market niches and innovative techniques. During the projected period, it is expected that the young people of the nation will become more passionate about sports and outdoor recreational activities, which will drive the demand for sportswear.

Joelle Laguillo Bernheimer is a health and fitness professional with over a decade of experience in the field. In the article below, Joelle Laguillo Bernheimer discusses the link between fitness and productivity.

It is common knowledge that regular exercise has immense benefits for body and mind. The workout supports the heart, increases blood flow throughout the body, and strengthens muscles and bones. For anyone looking to boost their productivity, exercising daily should be high on the to-do list.

The relationship between fitness and productivity is quite strong. Studies show that regular exercise increases productivity, performance and overall mood, says Joelle Laguillo Bernheimer.

The link between productivity and exercise

There is a common misconception that mental health and physical health are completely separate systems. On the contrary, physical fitness has a strong link with mental health, and vice versa, explains Joelle Laguillo Bernheimer. Productivity, a mental attribute, is therefore strongly affected by our daily physical activity.

People who exercise regularly have higher productivity rates and more positive attitudes at work than those who do not. The brain is also part of the body that benefits from exercise, which many tend to forget, explains Joëlle Laguillo.

Mental health and self-discipline

Things like goal achievement and self-motivation make people feel better about themselves. Exercise provides an opportunity to push the body to new limits, feeling stronger mentally and physically, says Joelle Laguillo. Physical fitness has been shown to help reduce the impacts of depression, anxiety, social withdrawal and self-esteem.

An important aspect of productivity is the ability to stay focused even when the task at hand isn’t so compelling. Sometimes exercise is painful, boring and exhausting, but you still have to do it. Practicing allows the mind to practice self-discipline as it goes through these uncomfortable feelings. Mental toughness translates from the physical body to the mind, explains Joelle Bernheimer.

Reduces stress and increases energy

Stress is an inevitable part of life. Most often, stress is mentioned in the workplace, but it can also arise in stressful family situations and in personal life. Some amounts of stress are normal – it’s the body’s response to threatening situations. However, being in a constant state of stress is damaging to the brain. Long-term stress has detrimental effects on cognition, heart health, and respiratory health, says Joelle Bernheimer.

Studies show that exercise is a healthy stressor for the mind and body that could eventually prepare the brain to deal with future stressful situations. Extreme stress involves a racing heartbeat, tense muscles, and racing thoughts.

Exercise strengthens the heart, relaxes the muscles and strengthens the respiratory system. In addition to helping to cope with stress, exercise increases mental toughness, which is helpful in stressful situations and decision making.

On top of that, exercise boosts the mood. Exercise provides a sense of accomplishment, promotes healthy habits, socialization and aids sleep. This positive energy finds its way into the workplace and helps to increase attitude and productivity at work.

Joelle Laguillo Bernheimer

How much exercise is enough?

Joelle Laguillo Bernheimer explains that exercise can have a huge impact on productivity and overall mental health. But how much exercise is needed? A minimum of 30 minutes per day or 2-4 hours per week of aerobic exercise is enough to start having the impact of increased productivity.

Aerobic exercises are those that increase the heart rate. By doing this, the heart rate will increase, breathing will become labored, and sweating is common. These exercises include:

• Swimming
• Functioning
• While walking
• Yoga
• Group sports
• Bike
• Jump rope
• Dancing

Exercises that get the heart pumping are those that deliver oxygen throughout the body and have the best effect on heart and brain health. The researched correlation between physical activity and mental health paints a clear picture of how one can increase one’s productivity this way, says Joelle Laguillo Bernheimer.

Working out can be a daunting task for those who haven’t done it in a while. Setting small goals goes a long way and is more accessible for beginners. Start by walking 30 minutes a day. Gradually increase workout duration and/or intensity as comfort increases.

The essential

Everyone wants to be more productive, to do more in less time. There are countless tools, apps, supplements, and products that claim to increase productivity like no other. The bottom line is that one of the best tools for increasing productivity is absolutely free — exercise, says Joelle Laguillo.

A growing body of evidence shows that physical activity has a positive impact on productivity because it:

• Improves mood and attitude
• Practice self-discipline
• Has a positive impact on overall mental health
• Reduces stress
• Increases energy
• Helps maintain a healthy sleep schedule
• Makes the body feel good

By stimulating blood flow and oxygen flow in the body and brain, exercise promotes overall health and well-being. It also strengthens the mental muscles responsible for decision making, stress management and ignoring distractions.

A two-day course involving 35 staff from Anantapur resort was trained in some special swimming techniques at Pandameru stream near Rapthadu by swimming expert Waheed.

A two-day course involving 35 staff from Anantapur resort was trained in some special swimming techniques at Pandameru stream near Rapthadu by swimming expert Waheed.

Andhra Pradesh State Disaster Response and Fire Service Department has launched a refresher training program for its 150 staff in Anantapur district with a two-day session on fitness and swimming.

Army to assess body composition and physical condition https://opendooryouthcenter.org/army-to-assess-body-composition-and-physical-condition/ Wed, 06 Jul 2022 16:15:00 +0000 https://opendooryouthcenter.org/army-to-assess-body-composition-and-physical-condition/ JULY 6, 2022 – The next phase of data collection for the U.S. Army Body Composition Study will take place at Fort Lee, Va., July 15-22.

JULY 6, 2022 – The next phase of data collection for the U.S. Army Body Composition Study will take place at Fort Lee, Va., July 15-22.

The study previously collected data from Fort Lee in February of this year, as well as Fort Bragg, North Carolina and West Point, NY.

The U.S. Army Initial Military Training Center (USACIMT), with the U.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine (USARIEM) as lead scientist, is conducting an extensive study to examine the association between body composition and physical performance of the soldier.

The results of the study will help inform potential future changes to the Army body composition program.

The study is part of the Army’s efforts to optimize holistic health and fitness and improve soldier readiness. It’s been over 30 years since the military began using body fat standards in place of height and weight tables. A re-examination of strength is needed as Army physical preparation programs evolve to reduce injuries and empower soldiers to perform basic soldier tasks.

The scientifically and ethically vetted study will examine active duty, National Guard, and Army Reserve soldiers representing diverse backgrounds, including age, gender, race/ethnicity, and physical demand categories and functions .

During the study, researchers will assess height and body composition by measuring soldiers’ height, weight, circumference and body composition and examine them against their most recent fitness score (i.e. ACFT or APFT) as well as the dates and types of physical limitations due to injury. For women, the study will also look at number and dates of pregnancies, methods of delivery, first postpartum fitness score and ABCP record, if available.

The study will use four measurement techniques to assess body composition: (1) standard AR 600-9 strip test, (2) dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA), (3) three-dimensional full-body scan (scan 3D), and (4) bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA).

The study will examine the associations of these four measures with exercise performance and compare them to current AR 600-9 circumference measures. Additional information will provide relationships between type and time lost from duty due to injury or pregnancy and associations with body composition and physical performance.

The holistic health and fitness system is an investment in preparing every soldier. It is a commitment to our people by protecting their health and ensuring they are prepared to fight and win our nation’s wars.

Soldiers interested in volunteering for the study should contact their chain of command or contact CIMT directly at cimtpao@gmail.com.
