My name is Clint, founder of WODing Warriors. I've had a passion to provide more for OUR veterans since I left the military in 2007.
The benefits of "fitness" goes beyond the power of the physical. The mental component far exceeds anything else. I started WODing Warriors because of the mental benefits I personally experienced through my fitness journey. Since I left the Navy, I married my high school sweetheart and have two wonderful children. I've also gone on to receive a bachelor's and master's degrees along with a successful career. With nothing but positive things in my life I still struggled throughout the years mentally.
Eleven years after I left the military, I made the choice to finally do something and joined a CrossFit gym. In the first 6 months I saw my physical health begin to improve. The part that so many veterans struggle with; the mind, would be much harder. Fitness has now become something I look forward to and need. While I've moved on from my first gym, I have the same give it your all attitude I once had in the military. Finding the right group of people to push you and trust has been extremely beneficial in my life.
CrossFit provided something that is difficult to find in the civilian world, camaraderie. When your see the WOD on the board for the first time, you know you won't be alone and there will be other going it to the same battle. It's the same feeling when you're going into battle in the military. You're not going in alone and you can trust your fellow soldiers to push you through the shit. It's that camaraderie, that constant push to be better than the day before that took me to a place I of comfort again, the piece of my life I felt was missing. Is CrossFit for everyone; no, but without trying you will never know. It took me 11 years to find it. My hope is to provide the same physical and mental relief I experienced and provide better access for veterans who need it far more than I did.
Join me in the fight FOR our wounded veterans.
God Bless our Veterans, their families and the United States of America!
