Carmel firefighters to host free fitness boot camp
Would you like to have the body of a firefighter? Well, the Carmel Fire Department is putting on an event that could get you “calendar-ready.”
On June 27, Carmel firefighters will be hosting a free fitness boot camp on the lawn in front of city hall from 9 to 9:45 a.m.
Anyone is invited to bring a towel or yoga mat and be instructed on how to get fit by Carmel firefighters who have been certified as personal trainers.
Firefighter Tim Griffin, well-known for his appearances on the IndyStyle morning news show, said it’s a great way to help the community get fit and it doesn’t matter what level you are at.
“In the fire stations, space is at a premium so we’ll be showing people how to get fit using just your own body weight instead of needing any machines or equipment,” he said.
If the event is a success, Griffin said they hope to hold future events in the same space.
“It’s a great place to hold an event because afterwards you can just walk down to the Carmel Farmers Market and refuel with all of the great food they have there,” he said.
