Thundrbro, a leader in online functional fitness and bodybuilding training through thundrbro.com, is proud to announce its official charity partnership with WarriorWOD for 2024.
Every year thousands of veterans battle post-traumatic stress (PTS), suicidal ideations, addiction, and other mental health conditions. Every day, more than 22 veterans die from suicide, and an additional 20 succumb to substance abuse in the United States. The WarriorWOD foundation prioritizes exercise and nutrition as prescriptions for veterans’ recovery from PTS and other invisible wounds.
Thundrbro has led a charge to help athletes and fitness enthusiasts regain their thunder through scientifically backed functional hypertrophy programs created by renowned fitness expert and coach Dave Lipson. Recognizing an alignment between these two organizations led to what both sides describe as a natural fit.
“WarriorWOD uses fitness to help heal those invisible wounds so many of our veterans come home with,” Thundrbro founder Dave Lipson said. “That mission aligns with what we are doing in working to help athletes who deal with physical and emotional issues reclaim their thunder by being part of an online community of people who work hard, provide one another support, and accomplishing goals.”
“There is something powerful about people coming together in fitness to help motivate and support one another. What Phil and team are doing at WarriorWOD is harnessing that power and using it to help people daily. We have a lot of veterans on our team so it also has a very personal connection for us as well.”
"At WarriorWOD, we've always believed in the transformative power of fitness and community support to overcome life's toughest challenges. Our partnership with Thundrbro is a testament to this belief. By joining forces, we are not only expanding our reach but also intensifying our impact on the veterans' community. Thundrbro's expertise in fitness training and their robust online community are invaluable assets that will greatly enhance our programs. We are thrilled to bring Thundrbro's dynamic and effective training approaches into our curriculum. Together, we aim to empower more veterans than ever before, offering them a pathway to physical strength and mental resilience."
Thundrbro is supporting WarriorWOD by providing training programs, community platforms, coaching, and additional fundraising opportunities to help WarriorWOD reach even more veterans.
Phil Palmer elaborated, "This collaboration with Thundrbro is not just about providing fitness programs; it's about creating a supportive community where veterans can thrive. With Thundrbro's resources, we're poised to broaden our services, offering more comprehensive support that extends beyond physical fitness. This includes nutritional guidance, mental health resources, and an inclusive community. Our goal is to create a holistic wellness journey for our veterans, ensuring they have all the tools they need to succeed in their personal and professional lives."
