Washington Fire Firefighters Launch First of Its Kind Pilot Program on Health and Fitness
Date:11/19/2008

PORT ORCHARD, Wash., Nov. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Stayhealthy, Inc. and EF Recovery announced today that they have launched a pilot program with the Washington Fire Chief's Fire Rescue Wellness Corporation to bring revolutionary health and fitness devices to Washington area firefighters.

"The health and safety of our firefighters is always a top concern," said Chief Wayne Senter, Fire Chief of South Kitsap Fire Rescue. "As our nation deals with an epidemic of overweight and obesity that affects more than 70% of our population, we are always looking for the best solutions to bring to our firefighters to improve their overall fitness levels. The pilot program we've launched today provides what I believe will be one of the most compelling solutions to help our firefighters achieve their best fitness levels."

"In advance of a nationwide rollout of the program, Stayhealthy and EF Recovery have partnered to test pilot this program in Washington State. When we were first introduced to the firefighters in Washington State, we were immediately impressed by their enthusiasm and commitment to the health and fitness of their organization. We chose to test pilot our program here so that we can get firsthand experiences that we can take to firefighters across the country," said John Collins, CEO of Stayhealthy.

"The pilot program will be initiated at seven fire stations directed by Chief Wayne Senter, within the Puget Sound region, in South Kitsap Fire and Rescue District. The Stayhealthy devices that will be used during the pilot include the Stayhealthy Body Composition Analyzer and the Stayhealthy Calorie Tracker. The Body Composition Analyzer is the only product of its kind. It provides a precise and instantaneous reading of individual body fat, lean muscle mass and hydration levels. All of this information is critical to understanding personal fitness levels and setting goals for enhancing fitness. The Calorie Tracker provides 24/7 tracking of actual calories burned. Fitness starts with balancing individual caloric requirements with calories consumed and calories burned," said Collins. "The Stayhealthy tools allow anyone to precisely define their needs and personalize a program to attain their fitness goals."

The pilot program will be conducted for the next 90 days and will conclude in mid-February. Participants in the program will monitor their body composition throughout the program using the Body Composition Analyzer, and each participant will wear a Calorie Tracker to monitor their actual calorie burn. We are interested in seeing how firefighters use the devices on a day to day basis.

"In communities across the country, firefighters play a vital role in protecting citizens and property. Every community is interested in helping to keep their firefighters healthy. We believe this program will play a key role in managing the health and fitness of firefighters across the country," said Jim Clark of EF Recovery.
