When an injury forced him into physical therapy, Findlay Fire Captain Matt Cooper started a 90-day competition with the staff at Ohio Orthopaedics. The Findlay Fire Department challenged the staff and after 90-days, whichever team lost the most weight would get to put the other team through a workout of their choice in the final Fitness Face-off Challenge coming up on Saturday.

Though the fire department won, Ohio Orthopaedic’s Director of Sports Therapy Josh Baker said the statistics that came out of the challenge were staggering and the benefit to everyone who participated was greater than win or lose.

For the final challenge, the department chose to put the Ohio Ortho staff through the firefighter’s agility entrance exam as their Fitness Face-Off Challenge. The face-off will take place at Dorney Plaza in downtown Findlay at 10:30 a.m. and the public is invited to watch and enjoy some of the other events taking place at the challenge such as family workouts, yoga classes and booths with information on getting started with a healthier lifestyle.
