S6, E63 First Responder Fitness for a Reshaped World with FDNY Captain Joy Garcia

By mid-March 2020, several states, including New York, were locked down and people were experiencing in real time the watershed change the country would soon fully experience due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Among the earliest businesses to be closed were gyms and fitness centers. It was, and is, the perfect storm for a breakdown in the performance and resiliency of professionals dedicated to the health and wellbeing of the city or community they serve. Captain Joy Garcia, who joined the FDNY at 18, relied on the years of discipline she cultivated during her career to stay committed to her fitness routine, which supported her physical and mental wellbeing throughout the COVID-19 outbreak.
