Soldiers Get Helping Hand

Making News:

Two former graduates of West Point have teamed up to provide U.S. soldiers a program designed to ease their transition from active duty to civilian life. Called Destination Fitness Training, the 4-day event approaches soldiers in a holistic manner. Creators Nathan Barto and David Swalve offer personal functional fitness plans, goal setting, “personal strengths identification,” myriad fitness activities, and a virtual-trainer program courtesy of Avago Technologies. “We know that our soldiers—especially our wounded soldiers—deserve great service,” says Swalve in a press release. “When their physical abilities change, learning how to functionally work with those abilities is an indicator of future of success.” To learn more about Destination Fitness Training, visit www.foxtrot3.com.
