Being physically fit can mean the difference between life and death for them or the victims they race to save. New York City fire captain and personal trainer Michael Stefano has come to the rescue with The Firefighter's Workout Book, the thirty-minute-a-day, train-for-life program that's worked for New York City firefighters and will work for you. The Firefighter's Workout Book covers all aspects of health and fitness, including strength, cardiovascular, and flexibility training.

Step-by-step instruction, interspersed with motivational stories based on Stefano's experience as a firefighter, will leave you burning for more. The workout routines can be tailored to fit individual needs. The illustrated exercise guide features photos of New York City firefighters. You will learn how to stay motivated, set reasonable, attainable goals, and chart your own progress to ensure results. A simple, easy-to-follow nutrition plan is also offered.

    This book was okay. At times it was over-simplistic. The workouts are very basic, the one thing I got from this book was to stretch daily, other than that I give it TWO stars.

    I bought Michael Stefano's book and have used it, too. He is right on the money when it comes to
    conditioning and physcial fitness. I only have one thing to say about his book. Get it and use it.
    It is second to only Lt. Smith's Physical Fitness for SEAL's. I like both books.
