Wounded Warrior Project Spotlight - Finding Fitness

Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) and Johns Hopkins University recently hosted a health and wellness expo for a group of wounded veterans at the university's workout facilities. Warriors participated in a circuit of exercises focusing on different areas of the body at varying levels of intensity. Like other WWP fitness gatherings, the workout was in an environment that accommodated physical injuries and social anxieties. Depending on the needs and comfort levels of each warrior, WWP staff offered instructions on modifications that improved the workout.

WWP frequently hosts a variety of on nutritional and fitness gatherings across the nation that aid in the physical and mental recovery from the invisible wounds of war. WWP offers programs and services that assist veterans with mental health, physical health and wellness, career and benefits counseling, and connecting with other warriors and their communities.
