The city of La Crosse and Mayo Clinic Health Systems are teaming up to provide specialized fitness programs to the city's firefighters. The Finance & Personnel Committee approved a service agreement on Thursday, outlining that Mayo will help develop and present a series of fitness programs to improve the health and ability of La Crosse's firefighters. "I think it's a wonderful opportunity," said La Crosse Fire Chief Jeffrey Schott. Schott said this has been in the works for the last three years after a few doctors with Mayo expressed a "passion" for firefighter fitness. Mayo would develop "tactical" fitness routines for La Crosse firefighters by using data from previous injury reports, ride along observations, and input from firefighters.
