Make A Vet Sweat is a non-profit organization founded by former Airborne Infantryman Justin Bohannon to help veterans discharged from the military readjust to civilian life through group fitness.

Research has shown that regular exercise is extremely effective at combating the symptoms of both depression and anxiety. It is a well known fact now with the ending of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars that veterans are at a much higher risk for suicide than the general population. Many know the figure of 22 veterans committing suicide a day, however, we are also losing our veterans to prescription drug and alcohol abuse and overdose due to depression and anxiety.

Make A Vet Sweat covers the cost of gym memberships for veterans and their spouses for up to 3 months to allow veterans an opportunity to get back on track and lead a healthy lifestyle once again. We stress the importance of group fitness so that there is a sense of camaraderie and so that you can never be without a battle buddy. 

Join this group, whether you are a veteran or just want to support our troops help us beat PTSD. The meetups posted here will be available to the public as well as veterans.
