Elizabeth Higgins – Disabled Air Force Combat Veteran
“When I left the Air Force 10 years ago I quickly started losing my drive to stay physically fit. I missed the fun of group physical training. For me, Branded One Crossfit was the answer. I have great support and fun working out with a group of people who are devoted to helping disabled Veterans get healthy. Not only has my physical health improved since I’ve been training, but also my mental health. I’m incredibly thankful to be connected with this organization.”
Gary Bartusch – Disabled Army Veteran, lover of dogs, and friendly banter.
Leah Elmquist – US Navy Veteran – Builder Petty Officer First Class
“I’d been a runner since high school, and I became faster and stronger during my ten years in the Navy; then a traumatic brain injury changed my life and ended my career. I didn’t think CrossFit was going to be for me, but the trainers are very personable and scale every workout to individuals’ abilities. Branded One has definitely improved my strength and endurance, and I enjoy pushing myself to the limits again. Motivation and the determination to complete any task, feelings I had while on active duty, are welcomed strangers back into my routine; and everyone who works out at Branded One supports one another completely.”
