First Due Fitness was an idea generated from the mind of CrossFit Level 1 Trainer, and professional firefighter/paramedic, Shawn O’Dwyer. As a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer at CrossFit Bloomington as well as a firefighter/paramedic at the Indianapolis International Airport Fire Department Shawn has an extreme passion for fitness and wellness, as well as the fire service. Receiving his education in Fire Science from Lake Superior State University, Shawn wrote on the need to improve fitness and wellness within the fire service. As part of his research Shawn identified the dangers of an unhealthy lifestyle in the fire service, ways to implement fitness programs, and ways to promote a healthy lifestyle through leadership and example. Through this website and social media outlets, First Due Fitness hopes to bring a practical and functional approach to fire service specific fitness and wellness.
