IMG teams with Wounded Warrior Project

IMG Performance, has joined forces with Wounded Warrior Project to hold a health and fitness expo at IMG Academy, June 12-15.

The goal of the expo is to provide wounded servicemen and women with knowledge and training programming to maintain a healthy, active and competitive lifestyle as they continue to serve the nation in civilian life.

"We are excited to share our training system, IGNITE 360, which was developed over thirty years of training elite-level athletes at IMG Academy, with these brave servicemen and women who have given so much for our freedom," said Brian Griffin, VP of IMG Performance and President of IGNITE 360.

IMG Performance and the Wounded Warriors Project will work to implement a comprehensive program for service members that includes education in disciplines like physical and mental conditioning, nutrition and communication.

"Over the past decade, we've looked for new, innovative programs to meet the needs of our wounded armed forces members as they return home. Working with IMG Performance and IGNITE 360 seemed like a natural fit in this regard," said Jason Martinez, Senior Physical Health & Wellness Specialist, Wounded Warrior Project.
