Got your 6

Studies have shown that fitness can play an important role in helping veterans overcome Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, which is why the Military Muscle Foundation has the Got Your 6 program. We work with gyms all over the country to provide fitness and health club memberships to struggling veterans. Our goal is provide these veterans with a free gym membership to a gym for them and or their family members for a year. Once a month we want to find a veteran to award this gym membership to. We know fitness is truly important and can be life-changing for our veterans and their families.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal for the Military Muscle Foundation is to spread awareness about suicide, PTSD and depression. We want to inform all service members, veterans, and active duty personnel that we as an organization are here to help support. We have built a community of members who's main goal is to be there in their time of need and help to be accountable in achieving the goals set.

The Military Muscle Foundation positively impacts the veteran community through fitness and our social media platform. By emphasizing our core programs - focused on Outreach and Engagement, Mental Health Support, Physical Health & Wellness, and Financial Assistance, Employment – MMF works to battle the spectrum of barriers to successfully help veterans life a healthy and fulfilling life.

Providing support from a social, monetary, and physical standpoint Military Muscle Foundation has changed the lives of many families. Over the past couple of years we have raised over $45,000 to help families in need. Some of our programs are the Family Assistance Program, Got Your 6 Program, and 20 to 0 Program.

The Family Assistance Program helps families who were faced with tragedy or in hardship. We provide both monetary, physical, and emotional support for those families who are in need.

The Got Your 6 Program that helps to fund gym free or heavily discounted memberships for veterans. Our core believe it that through fitness, one can reach their highest potential both mentally and physically living and leading a healthy life.

The 20 to 0 Program uses fitness events throughout the country to help spread awareness about suicide, depression, and PTSD. Our events get the community involved to show their support in our mission to helping our vets.

Thanks to the outstanding work from our staff, ambassadors, and supporters we have made an impact in the community that is not only seen but has been felt. Our mission is to continue helping and change lives one person at a time.

Military Muscle Foundation has accomplished some of what we have set out to do. Bringing awareness to those who do not know about this epidemic happening in our community. The number is slowing coming down but even if one vet takes their life that is one too many. We are proud of our community in what we have accomplished but we have lots of work to do. Our support and our promise is that You Are Not Alone.
