I am an Adaptive Athlete and participant in the Warrior Wellness Solutions’ Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) Adaptive Sports Program. This program has truly enhanced my recovery by engaging me in physical and cognitive activities outside the traditional therapy setting. The program has supported me in my physical and psychological recovery and rehabilitation and inspired recovery and physical fitness. It has encouraged me to pursue new opportunities for growth and achievement. BJJ has reduced my stress, increased the quality of my life, helped lower my blood pressure and body fat.
Thanks WWS!

Wellness Solutions Group LLC has provided Warrior Wellness Solutions (WWS) with Functional Patterns (FP) training and education methodology that focuses on making bio-mechanical adaptations relevant to human physiology which in turn will create a more sustainable body that has improved capability of responding to stressors in it's environment. WWS uses this foundational yet radically inventive approach when rehabilitating the bodies of our nation's injured service members and veterans. FP as implemented by Warrior Wellness Solutions is uniquely "therapeutic" as it directly translates to a more stable spine and buffers against low back pain, neck pain, etc. Once accomplished, WWS uses FP static positions and basic exercises to "re-tension" key muscles that are dormant in the population especially during certain contexts such as walking. WWS then implements dynamic movements that serve to neurologically and physiologically connect long chains/slings of muscles that are designed to function together such as the AOS (anterior oblique sling) and POS (posterior oblique sling). By first prioritizing postural distortions and establishing it as a base for movement, the body then can intrinsically be wired to be resistant to gravity & transfer force in the most leveraged fashion, ensuring a long life of pain free movement for those that they serve.

I have known WWS and it's founders since it's inception. I have also been the fortunate beneficiary of the training. The quality and value of the training is remarkable. The passion and commitment of the organization to restore health to our nations Wounded, Ill and Injured service members is powerful and effective. I cannot recommend this organization highly enough. AS a Board Member and Donor I have never felt more strongly about supporting any organization.

As a Corporate Donor AND long term client the extraordinary high level nutrition and physical training expertise is astounding. The constant long term success WWS achieves with every veteran/soldier (and their support network) is a testament to the value this non-profit provides. Unlike other non-profits that provide a one day/week opportunity, this non-profit seeks to provide life long benefits from the individual nutritional and physical training.
Changed my life and my entire family's health and well being.

Ive recieved the kind of personal and professional one-on-one attention from Warrior Wellness Solutions on multiple occassions over the past 2 years, and I should have gotten around to this long ago. Regarding diet, Clarrisa has assisted in creating the perfect warrior athlete diet for me, and one that Ive stuck to for years now with continueed health and performance. Elijah is one of a kind and was first to call when I posted an issue on Facebook. Yes, he reached out to me and provided the essential modality I needed to get rid of a chronic first-rib issue (READ - PAIN). I now do Foundation Training everyday at his counsel, and its been a game-changer. Top Notch!!!

Warrior Wellness Solutions has made incredible and transformational impacts on Soldiers' lives. I had the privilege of attending one of their workshops. When the floor was given to the audience to share their stories, I heard from a triple amputee and a man who had had half of his intestines removed after an IED-related injury. The amputee told a personal story about how this nonprofit had transformed his health and helped him escape depression. The second man, after implementing food juicing and other strategies taught during a workshop, had enabled his gut to heal and reduced the number of medications he took from 12 to 6. This is true impact.

I can't say enough good things about Warrior Wellness Solutions and their amazing team of coaches, mentors and instructors. As a Service-Disabled Veteran and Professional Instructor I have been able to witness the life-changing work this N.C. based Non-Profit provides to the Veterans and their families! As a member of the Veteran community for many years I've seen non-profits misuse and abuse their power, influence and funds. WWS is lead by a team of professionals that have devoted blood, sweat and tears to their mission of providing elite wellness solutions to Veterans and their families. I would give them 10 stars if I could. Salute!

I have chosen to donate to this outstanding organization. I know first hand the hard work Elijah and Clarissa put into this organization. I have also experienced the healing powers and skill Elijah has as one of his clients. I have been able to significantly lower pain medication in a short period of time and I feel great. My yoga practice is now top notch and I don't struggle and have more motivation. I am indebted to him and believe in what he is doing.

Rewind about a year ago, I was "just another veteran" struggling to find motovation, and lost as to what I was still physically capable of. In April of 2011 I was invited to atend a cycling event from DC to Gettysburg. I utilized a rental bike and from then I was re-addicted to cycling. Being an unemployed veteran, in the middle of a fellowship that paid a minimal stipend made it impossible to afford the bike that I could rehabilitate my injuries on and continue to find my drive! Enter Semper Fit/SFHW I had posted a wish on Wish Upon A Hero and cross posted it to my Facebook. The Co-Founder saw my post on their page and got in in touch with their cycling cordinator. After that inital contact... I had a top grade bike that would allow me to continue to ride, rehabilitate my injuries -both invisible and visible, and regain control of my OWN health and wellness!
