Outside of professional athletes, first responders may just be the most often injured while on the job and like athletes, they often face a grueling rehab process. The training regimen at Results Sports Institute in Sacramento is specifically designed to help firefighters who have suffered injuries on duty and get them ready for the grueling challenges they will face when they return to work. “Just because it is so specialized and so I feel confident going back to return to full duty,” said firefighter Jonathan Pryor. “I have to know and be able to trust my body and know that it is going to hold up for me,” said firefighter in training Kendall Adams. “These guys are very active. They are more on the sports side of profession versus a desk job,” said the program’s designer, Dan MacLean. “So, we want to treat them and rehab them like the athletes they are. In order to do that we have to understand the demands of their job.”
