Buxley’s Battalion is a 501 c(3) dedicated to assisting veterans in re-engaging in civilian life through physical fitness and wellness seminars. Buxley’s Barbell is the fitness portion of Buxley’s Battalion and is a small private box gym. At our gym, we created open spots for weight loss boot camp classes and individual training for veterans.
The mission of Buxley’s Barbell is to provide a free private gym for veterans to utilize to become the best version of themselves. Our gym offers Olympic lifting platform, free weights, and functional fitness equipment for workouts and cardio. All training and classes incorporate the spirit of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu that has helped many veterans, including myself. We provide individual or group classes.
Veterans will work with a trainer for either one on one training or in a group class to help them lose weight, build strength, and become mentally healthier by doing physical fitness and following a healthy diet. Each veteran will have a three-month block of goals to work towards. There will be weigh-ins each week and body measurements twice a week. At the end of each three-month block, Buxley’s Battalion and each veteran will assess if moving on to a bigger fitness facility is necessary for continued progress. The veteran will continue to follow the nutritional plan and do weekly check-ins for monitoring and measurements.
Classes for Buxley’s Battalion will be 45 min each – 15 min warm up then 30 min of conditioning training. Each class will have a maximum of ten veterans that will be a team. The teams will work to inspire and motivate each other to help the veteran work towards their own goals. The teams will have a private FB group to use for asking questions, motivating each other, and accountability.
