SALT LAKE CITY -- Firefighters are generally in good shape, but that doesn't mean they don't have room to improve when it comes to their health.

Fifteen firefighters from across Salt Lake County have joined Intermountain Medical Center's annual My Heart Challenge, which is a competition that aims to put people on a path to a more healthy lifestyle.

The challenge kicked off recently, and it runs until June 25. See the video above for interviews with firefighters and others.
