As we discussed in a previous post, working out is a big part of being a first responder. Unlike other jobs, that are predominantly physical (waiting tables, construction, landscaping) or predominantly intellectual (digital marketing, computer programming, graphic design) EMS professionals have to be both.
In the course of a given work day, an emergency medical service provider may be asked to lift a grown adult from the wreckage of a car accident and find a way to calm a child who is traumatized from falling out of a tree. EMS professionals must be both physically and mentally sharp to perform their job at a high level, which means they have to spend a lot of time thinking about their health and fitness.
Here at Fire & Fuel Apparel, we’re dedicated to supporting the vital role that EMS professionals play in our society. Without brave men and women who are willing to run towards the chaos and danger of emergency situations, many others wouldn’t be here to celebrate another day on this beautiful planet. That’s why we create high-quality EMS apparel that celebrates first responders and that’s why we’ve put together this rad playlist to help keep EMS professionals motivated when they’re at the gym.
So what are you waiting for? Grab your phone, download these songs, pull on your EMS apparel from Fire & Fuel, and start achieving those gains!
Must-Listen To Songs While Working Out In Our Paramedic Clothing
Another One Bites The Dust – Queen
The driving beat and killer lyrics of this song make it the perfect way to open up your gym playlist. No matter what stressful incidents have clouded your day, this anthem will brush them all aside as you lift that barbell, press those dumbbells, and put a hurtin’ on the treadmill or elliptical machine. And the BEST part is that every time you hear the chorus, you can think about all those fat cells that are biting the dust only to be replaced by lean muscle!
Pump It – Black Eyed Peas
The name of this powerful Black Eyed Peas song says it all! If you’re looking for a song that will wake you up and make you feel jazzed to take on the day’s workout, look no further. You should turn it up–LOUDER–and use it to make the haters envious. Everyone else in the gym will definitely want to be you when they see you crushing it in your Fire & Fuel EMS apparel!
Stronger – Kanye West
Want to be bigger, faster, stronger? This is the song that will help you get there. Say what you will about Kanye West, he knows how to combine great lyrics with a sick beat that will make you feel invincible when you’re putting in work at the gym. Use it to remind yourself that the only thing standing between you and greatness is your own insecurity! Push it to the side and be the hero you know you can be.
Push It – Salt n’ Peppa
This one throws it way, WAY back for a rap song that has stood the test of time. If you find yourself temped to quit in the middle of a particularly hard circuit training session, Salt n’ Peppa will remind you to always PUSH IT to the limit! These ladies of rap music are here to tell you that you have the strength to stick it out for the long haul. Whether it’s dealing with difficult calls or beating your PR on that back squat, this song will keep you motivated.
Til’ I Collapse – Eminem
This rockin’ song comes to us from the movie Real Steel and it will help you to feel invincible even when your tired mind and body are telling you that it would be best to quit. “When you feel weak, you feel like you want to just give up,” Eminem says in this song, and we think that echos what EMS professionals probably feel like on a daily basis. Reach down deep inside yourself to find the strength you need to keep going with this song that refuses to let you quit.
