Having a program that affects quality of life of veterans now may lead to additional benefits as they age more.

Project Introduction

The intended purpose of this pilot randomized control trial it to study the impact of CrossFit on quality of life of veterans with PTSD. In addition to researching if there are changes in quality of life, this study will examine whether veterans who share information about the benefits of CrossFit with other veterans (a form of affectionate communication) have increased feelings of military bonding.
