Bryan Fass is one of the foremost experts on public safety injury prevention, fitness, wellness, Patient Handling ergonomics and
injury analysis screenings. He is a highly regarded speaker, author
and consultant. Bryan and his Fit Responder Programs are being utilized
to reduce overexertion injury, decrease workers compensation costs, reduce loss and field healthy-fit employees.
State associations, local government, municipalities, corporations and
industry have all benefited from the direction and credibility Bryan
brings with the Fit Responder program. As a Clinician with over 15
years of rehabilitation and human performance experience and as a
Paramedic I look at the human body with a perspective that few possess.
With the credibility to "get through" to employees because I have been
there I am able to change behaviors and that leads to injury reduction.
Police Officers, Fire Fighters, EMT’s, Paramedics and Nurses will over the course of their career be exposed to countless situations where there will be no proper way to lift or move. Sometimes we just have to get the job done, and get it done fast. Police, Fire and EMS injury rates continue to rise despite better gear and equipment, so what is an organization or Responder to do?
Working in EMS part time and having a career in Clinical Sports Medicine / Athletic Training full time has allowed me a unique look at our profession from both the inside out and the outside in. The decision to write the Fit Responder book and enter the world of Public Safety Fitness, Wellness and Injury Prevention Consulting has been and continues to be fueled by the friends I made over my 8 years as a Paramedic.
The 'Fit Responder' Program came about because I could no longer sit quietly aside while watching co-workers bodies deteriorate and fail from lack of care, improper exercise and over / under use.
Throughout my career I have had countless Officers, Fire Fighters, Nurses and Medics come to me for advice and guidance. Unfortunately by the time many of them contacted me their bodies were already injured. Make no mistake about it ...your chosen profession is hard on your body. But there are simple things that can be done, on duty and off, to fight injury and be fit.
The FIT RESPONDER program was designed to help you be healthy, stay healthy and perform better.
Utilizing simple but very effective tests and 'corrective exercises' we can keep you healthy, on the job while reducing your health care costs.
There are numerous 'programs, books, peer trainers and experts' out there that simply reinforce exercises and concepts that are dangerous. The biomechanical imbalances that a career in Public Safety and Health Care causes and years of 'dangerous bodybuilding type' exercise will take it's toll on your body.
You owe it to yourself and the community you serve to integrate Injury Prevention Techniques and ‘corrective exercises’ into your fitness routine.
Let me teach you or your department how to use science and proper biomechanics to keep you healthy, strong and injury free.
