At Jesse James Fit and Outlaw FitCamp, we’d like to take this opportunity to salute our veterans!
Veterans Day is Monday, November 11, and the entire month of November is National Veterans and Military Families Month. We all owe our gratitude to the active-duty personnel and veterans who have served our country and defended our rights.
We want to do something to honor these veterans, so we’re offering some special discounts during the month of November on personal training and Outlaw FitCamp group training FitCamp Classes.
Did you know Outlaw FitCamp Franchise (Jesse James Fit’s sister company) Offers a discount for qualified veterans who would like to own their own fitness business by investing in an Outlaw FitCamp franchise! We know there are no harder workers than our veterans, and we would love for them to be a part of our team.
Discounts for personal training and fitness classes
For veterans, we are offering one month of free, unlimited use of our FitCamp facilities and classes. And bring your spouse! He or she can enjoy the month with you at 50% off for the month of November.
Also, if you’d like to experience the excellent personal training offered at Jesse James Fit or one of our Outlaw FitCamp locations in DFw, we have a discount for National Veterans and Military Families Month as well. Veterans and their spouses can enjoy two free training sessions by one of our certified personal trainers. Then if you want to continue personal training, you’ll receive 25 percent off any packages purchased in November.
A discount for becoming a franchise owner
Veterans are currently finding a lot of success in the fitness business. Because of this—and because we’d like to do what we can to contribute to the success of our returning veterans—we encourage you to consider becoming part of our team.
We’re offering veterans a discount of 15% off the price of purchasing an Outlaw FitCamp franchise. This is an ongoing discount right now—not just for the month of November.
The reasons for becoming a business owner in the growing fitness industry are many. Add the company support you get from being part of the Outlaw FitCamp family, and the opportunity can’t be beat. We wrote more about it here.
Consider the opportunity and give us a call to discuss the details. It might be the perfect fit for you!
Exercise is an important tool for veterans
Everyone benefits from regular exercise, but this may be truer for veterans than any other group.
And for those with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), exercise can be especially beneficial. While this condition affects approximately 7 to 8 percent of all Americans, the National Center for PTSD estimates that 13 to 31 percent of military veterans may develop PTSD during their lifetime.
Studies show that exercise has a number of positive benefits for someone suffering from PTSD. Regular exercise helps boost mood, improves sleep quality, increases energy levels, promotes weight loss, improves cardiovascular health, gives greater flexibility, and reduces anxiety and depression. Evidence shows that exercise not only helps veterans with any physical injuries they may have but helps with psychological suffering as well.
Why veterans are a perfect fit for the fitness industry
Many military veterans prove to be a perfect match for the fitness industry. In recent years, an increasing number of veterans are turning to the fitness industry as personal trainers, club managers, and fitness facility owners.
- Military.com named fitness training as one of the 30 fastest-growing careers for veterans over the next ten years.
- The Bureau of Labor Statistics lists personal training as one of the 30 fastest-growing jobs markets and says that it is “ideal for veterans and transitioning service members.” They expect growth in this field to increase every year.
Skills developed in military service translate very well to what’s needed in the fitness industry:
- Physical training is a critical part of military service—veterans are usually familiar with the tools and techniques of fitness.
- Military training and experiences develop traits that lead to success.
- Veterans are career oriented.
- Military personally usually learn to become flexible and adaptable.
- Many veterans have experience leading teams, and they’ve learned to make decisions involving some risk.
