G-Force Veterans and Guardians Programs

 

ASTRO-DURANCE® Bungee Systems and our sister studio, P2 Personal Training, both owned by Patty Cummings, have been passionate about the wellbeing of our military veterans since our inception. Our motion-based total body workout system has been a remarkable and fun method of exercising pain free for people of all ages and fitness levels regardless of physical limitations. It is loved by the vets we have been able to serve, albeit on a limited scale, while improving their physical and mental well-being.


We had been seeking a nonprofit organization to collaborate with to see what we could do in a more formal and proactive way when Patty met Gold Star mother Susan Price. Susan’s son Aaron Kenefick, USMC died while on active duty in Ganjgal, Afghanistan in September 2009. Susan, herself a vet, has fought tirelessly for veterans and became a Board Member for the Veterans Are Foundation.

We learned that Veterans Are Foundation (VAF), a registered 501(c)3 Charitable Organization, is dedicated to building a bridge of hope from public service to civilian and/or retired life for financially challenged Military Veterans and First Responders. VAF loving calls them their "Heroes of Service" and believes it is everyone’s duty to help ensure that they receive the respect and appreciation they so richly deserve.

ASTRO-DURANCE®, equipped by our desire to better “Service Our Heroes” is thrilled to now partner with the Veterans Are Foundation in bringing some of our mutual key goals to life in dramatic life-changing ways for US military veterans and guardians (first responders).

Upon watching President Trump's Signing Ceremony for his Executive Order entitled, “National Roadmap to Empower Veterans and End Veteran Suicide” ASTRO-DURANCE® and VAF decided to team up to present our solutions to the problems cited in his Executive Order #13861 - Veteran Suicide. This EO just signed on March 5, 2019 offers partnerships in effective ideas on ways to immediately reverse the 22 veteran suicides a day that the United States is currently experiencing.

G-Force Fitness is the name of our new overall program from ASTRO-DURANCE® and VAF focused exclusively on veterans and guardians. It is time tested in our studio to provide fast and miraculous improvements for clients who are recovering from surgeries and who suffer from injuries. These include debilitating disorders like PTSD, TBI, Arthritis, Muscular Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy, Parkinson’s Disease and more.

Follow the links to learn more about our three pronged mind-body-spirit approach to wellness that can also offer a career path for many and business ownership for those veterans who are capable and so inclined.
