In my short time in this field, I have met a wide range of EMS personnel. There are a few semi-dedicated vollies who are in it for the "social" aspect, while others treat it with a dead seriousness and are constantly looking at advancing their skills. The latter is what I try to emulate and from, the former, well, I maintain my distance. How about personal health and well-being? I know a few who think a paunchy and out of shape paramedic is a walking contradiction of what EMS is all about. I work out three times a week for 45 minutes. I love to do cardio on the machines-treadmills, stairclimbers, and the like. I could do a bit more I suppose, but life has a way of keeping you busy.:wacko: So are you a role model for health and fitness? Or does your personal fitness level not that important to the job?
