Welcome to FIFO Wellness!
This site has been designed for a FIFO worker, by a FIFO worker! It is ongoing additional support from the book 'FIFO: There's a healthier way'. Why? Because your needs are different to those living back at home sleeping in their comfy beds with two days at the end of every week to recover and unlimited access to a variety of fresh healthy foods. FIFO workers are subject to some of the harshest physical working environments in the world. Add on top of that are the long hours, the low quality camp food, isolation from friends and family and the unfortunate negative mindset that surrounds the mining industry.
This site aims to build on all the essential and easy to follow information from the book 'FIFO: There's a healthier way' written by Steve Hord ( FIFO worker and author of this site). FIFO Wellness provides you with posts on how to optimise performance whilst at work and play. Steve will share how to overcome that negative chatter inside your head and no bull nutritional information that is actually useful and specific to people in the mining industry. The store will be built up to include everything you need to get through your swing including supplements, health products and training gear.
There are no overweight pencil pushers here trying to tell you how to improve your work quality or how to eat a healthier diet before scampering back to the safety of their air-conditioned office. No sir! FIFO Wellness has been fully designed by a FIFO worker, so you know everything here is going to be tailored to your immediate needs.
