Why veterans fit so well in the fitness industry
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 see why military veterans and the fitness industry are such a great fit. The following skills developed in military service are the same skills that lead to success 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 are trained to be flexible and adaptable
- Many veterans have experience leading teams
Discounts for all Outlaw FitCamp workouts
Outlaw FitCamp offers all military veterans a 20 percent discount on personal training sessions and our group fitness classes. We offer this discount because we know how important exercise is for veterans.
How exercise benefits military veterans
Exercise benefits everyone, but this can be 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. Exercise helps those suffering with this disorder in a number of ways.
But even when a veteran does not suffer from PTSD, the impact of military deployments still affects many service members. This impact is felt physically, mentally, or emotionally—especially when they return home. During periods of deployment, military personnel can experience depression, sleep deprivation, and poor eating habits. Exercise is the best way to recover physically and mentally from these challenges.
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
