"Transitioning to civilian life is among one of the biggest issues for vets today. When we get home it's confusing and overwhelming with what do I do next. It took me a while when I came home in 2006 to realize I wasn't normal. It wasn't until I started working out again that I truly realized how much easier everything was to deal with. When I work out I feel less anxiety and depression and less tense, all of which stems from the PSTD. That’s why a career in fitness is where I want to be for the rest of my time here on earth and help spread the message. I wish you had this program 5 years ago. I was so amazed with the resources and information VFCC provides veterans. Thank you for what you do."

Veterans Fitness Career College is currently working on a partnership with Healthy Minds/Healthy Bodies (HM/HB) to provide service-connected disabled veterans a way to transition back into their community as a civilian through fitness.
This program was successfully piloted in the Chicago,IL area through NEDSRA having successfully helped more than 5o disabled veterans. Now HMHB is working with Veterans Fitness Career College to expand this program and its services throughout the nation.
This program offers three main features to qualified veterans:
To qualify for this program you must have:
The personal training sessions are one hour each and may be used at any time throughout the one year membership. The individual will set specific goals in the program – weight loss, gain flexibility, strength building around an injury site, be able to pass his/her next PT test, etc. The trainers create a workout program for the veteran to help them reach those specific goals. Trainers also document the abilities and level of fitness at the start and the level of fitness at the end of 15 sessions.
The monthly socials are intended for a few things.
