Warrior Battalion WOD – Florence, KY
November 20, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
The Warrior Battalion WOD is an intense workout of the day fundraiser that is coordinated by volunteer Gyms to support Warrior Battalion, a 501c3 Charity.
Our next event is located at: Florence Strength and Conditioning on November 20th, 2021.
The gym is located at: 330 Weaver Rd Suite 100 Florence, KY 41042
Each partner-gym/box will host a unique WOD with 22 exercises and 22 reps of each. At minute 22 into the WOD, teams take a 2 minute moment of silence for those who have passed in the veteran suicide epidemic. All of this, in honor of the highest the veteran suicide rate has ever been: 22.
The primary purpose of the Warrior Battalion WOD is to reduce veteran suicide by:
Establishing camaraderie to cope with post traumatic stress (anger, depression, loneliness, substance abuse and suicidal tendencies). Uniting veterans, families and supporters to care for each other in times of need.
Training Team Leaders (gym owners, trainers and coaches) how to interact with suicidal veterans and the steps to assist them.
Developing a Peer Mentor and Ambassador community of veterans, military families and civilians who support struggling families and/or veterans.
Physically and mentally challenging military familiesto get fit while making long-lasting relationships.
Getting military families to join the gym to build upon fitness and reductions in stress and obesity.
