My name is Scott McIntyre, and I am an Emergency Medical Technicial, Basic Life Support Instructor, and Certified Personal Trainer (emphasizing emergency fitness). I am trained in Tactical Combat Casualty Care and Canine Casualty Care, and have been an EMT and BLS Instructor for over 18 years. During various trainings and deployments I have seen the importance of maintaining and improving the ability to move and function around and through many types of obstacles and conditions. The classic commercial, ”I’ve fallen and I can’t get up” has always troubled me. Someone in a weakened condition, whether because of age or infirmity, places an extra burden on family and responders in an emergency. The emotional and physical stress it places on the individual who has fallen or is weakened is scary at best. My focus as a NASM Certified Personal Trainer is Emergency Fitness. The ability to move the body effectively during and after an emergency situation is vital for anyone at any age. Stability, flexibility, upper body strength and grip strength are key components to dealing with events we may be faced with during our lifetime.
