Our Mission is to "strengthen the mind, body, and spirit of San Diego's Wounded Warriors by utilizing innovative techniques and individually customized exercise therapy strategies". Our non-traditional approach to strength training incorporates the use of many unconventional approaches, including the use of Russian Kettlebells, which are different from standard weight lifting equipment. Kettlebell training focuses on movements not muscles, as well as whole-body conditioning for physical mobility and mental toughness.
