Why I Got Started
My name is Jason foster I am a Staff Sergeant in the U.S. Air Force and am currently stationed at Ramstein Air Base in Germany. Growing up I always wanted to be a firefighter so I thought the best way for me to do that was join the military. When I first joined the Air Force firefighting was not available for me to do, so I went with another job.
Even though the job I got was important and rewarding I still wanted to be a firefighter. About 10 months ago I put in an application to switch my job to firefighting. As it turned out 3 months later they approved me to change my job.

When I found out I was so excited but I realized I was no where near the shape I needed to be in to be the best firefighter I could be. I decided to dedicate myself to get in the best shape I could possibly be in for when my training starts in September. Well to make a long story short I have spent the last 6 months training my butt off and I believe it has paid off.
I am currently in the best shape I have ever been in but I am not done yet. Exercising and bodybuilding has now become a passion of mine and I plan on competing in my first contest in 2008.
I start my firefighting school in 4 weeks and thanks to hard work and advice from Bodybuilding.com I am going there in the best shape of my life.
