To empower, motivate and inspire Unites States Military Veterans, by promoting a health lifestyle through fitness, by achieving physical, mental and social wellness through the local community.
To make it simple and possible for every fitness club and trainer across the country, to become part of the alliance, and help end veteran suicide through fitness programing in their local fitness clubs.
What is the Fitness Military Alliance
The Fitness Military Alliance is a non-profit organization that helps to facilitate and promote healthy lifestyle and well being for military veterans. Through personal training, group training and local events and the support of local fitness professionals, our programs directly and positively affect the lives of many military veterans and their families. The success of our programing results in lifestyle changes with accountable and sustainable habits, at no charge to the veterans enrolled in the program, provided by the infrastructure and knowledge that already exists.
Who We Serve
The FMA program is designed for any veterans who have served our country with honor, who are seeking purpose in themselves or transitioning from active duty. For those who are willing to make a commitment to themselves and community, but lack the encouragement or motivation, we are here to help you attain your fitness goals.
The Facts Today and Why FMA
The fitness industry has much more to offer than what it does today, for our military veterans and their well being.
WE all must do our part in our local community. It is now calculated, every day at least 27 military veterans will lose their lives, at their own hands, due to the sense of hopelessness and despair associated with PTSD. This comprises approximately 20% of the national suicide rate in the Unites States. This disproportionate and unacceptable rate of suicide among veterans is only one of many health-related challenges they face. WE MUST TAKE ACTION! Approximately 18.5% of service members returning from Iraq or Afghanistan have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or depression, and 19.5% report experiencing a traumatic brain injury (TBI) during deployment. Approximately 50% of the returning service members who need treatment for mental health conditions seek it, but only slightly more than half who receive treatment, receive adequate care.
This is not something they can fight alone. We must align as an industry to help take on the task, prove our worth in the fitness community, and help those who have fought for our rights and freedoms.
By joining the alliance, we will Prove Your Worth, and help to reduce the suicide rate among veterans in this great country.
