Freedom Fitness America Results
Our training methodologies can be linked to results in one unit of 800 Marines and Sailors achieving an 80% drop in suicidal ideations, an 80% drop in sexual assaults, and a significant drop in substance abuse over the course of 1 year.
In another unit where a similar methodology to Freedom Fitness America was employed, there were no suicidal ideations over the course of pre-deployment workups and during deployment with only 9 of the 900 couples represented in the unit going through a divorce.
Freedom Fitness America's methods result in improved service member resilience with decreased adverse effects such as mental health distress and misconduct. While there is evidence that psychoeducational briefings (annual training) can have a positive impact, they may not be sufficient to produce desired outcomes. Per Military Medicine Journal, pg 104, there is growing support for more comprehensive skills-based training programs. Freedom Fitness America remedies just that as a resiliency-enhancing program that offers effectiveness rather than just efficiency.
