At Outlaw FitCamp, we’d like to take this opportunity to salute our U.S. veterans. Thursday, November 11, is Veterans Day this year.
Outlaw FitCamp is always happy to have an opportunity to honor military veterans who have served our country and defended our rights. That’s why we’re offering some exclusive discounts to show our gratitude. These discounts are for our personal training sessions, Outlaw FitCamp classes, and even for purchasing an Outlaw FitCamp franchise!
We are passionate about helping our veterans, both physically and in business.
Why exercise is so important for veterans (and an Outlaw FitCamp discount)
Outlaw FitCamp offers all U.S. veterans a 15 percent discount on personal training sessions and our group fitness classes. We offer this discount because we know the importance of exercise for veterans.
Exercise benefits everyone, but this is especially true for returning military servicemen and women. Evidence shows that exercise not only helps veterans with any physical injuries they may have, but with emotional and mental difficulties as well.
And for those veterans who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), exercise is critically important. While PTSD affects about 7 percent of all Americans, the National Center for PTSD estimates that 13 to 31 percent of military veterans may develop PTSD at some point in their lives. But exercise can help with this in a number of ways.
Even if a veteran does not suffer from PTSD, the impact of military deployments affects many service members. The impact is felt physically, mentally, or emotionally—especially when they return home. During periods of deployment (usually lasting 6 to 12 months), military personnel can experience dangerous situations, sleep deprivation, and poor eating habits. Exercise is the best way to recover physically and mentally from these challenges after returning home.
Exercise offers military veterans the following benefits:
- Boosts your mood
- Keeps you mentally sharp
- Fights depression
- Improves your sleep
- Keeps your weight under control
- Increases your energy
- Reduces anxiety
Veterans find success in the fitness business
Outlaw FitCamp offers a franchise discount for qualified veterans who would like to own their own fitness business. We know there are no harder workers than veterans, and we would love from them to be a part of our team!
Veterans are currently finding a lot of success in the fitness business. Because of this, and because we’d like to contribute in any way we can to the success of our returning veterans, we’re offering those who qualify a 15 percent discount off the price of purchasing an Outlaw FitCamp franchise.
Many military veterans prove to be a perfect match for the fitness industry. In fact, Military.com named fitness training as one of the fastest-growing careers for veterans over the next ten years. And the Bureau of Labor Statistics lists personal training as one of the thirty fastest-growing job markets. They say it is “ideal for veterans and transitioning service members.”
It’s easy to figure out why these are such a perfect fit. The following skills developed in military service translate very well to what’s needed in the fitness industry:
- Physical training is an important part of military service, so veterans are familiar with the tools and techniques of fitness
- Military training and experiences develop traits that lead to success
- Veterans are career oriented
- Military personnel usually learn to be flexible and adaptable
- Many veterans have experience leading teams
- Service members usually have learned to make decisions involving some risk
Outlaw FitCamp wants to work with U.S. veterans—as clients and as franchise owners
At Outlaw FitCamp we are extremely grateful for our military veterans. We want to help them stay fit when they get back home. And if they are interested in the fitness business, we want to help them become owners of their own Outlaw FitCamp franchise.
Either way, we want to thank veterans by offering discounts in our personal training programs, exercise classes, or in opening a franchise.
We believe that Outlaw FitCamp and military veterans are a perfect match. Give us a call today and let’s see how we can work together!
