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.
