When military personnel are injured in combat, it can be difficult to get back into a workout routine, especially if they had limbs amputated. Former pro-football player David Vobora met U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Travis Mills, a quadruple amputee, at the gym he had established for elite athletes. The duo began training together. However, Vobora realized that veterans like Mills cannot always use regular gyms because of their injuries. This inspired him to form the Adaptive Training Foundation, a gym geared towards injured veterans. The veterans go through a nine-week course and continue to use the facilities after graduation, gaining confidence and a sense of community that reinvigorates their lives.
