XLR8 22 Change

XLR8 22 Change
XLR8 Veterans is proud to announce "XLR8 22 Change" to help raise awareness to the struggles our veterans face in transitioning back to civilian life.  One of the biggest challenges that our military personnel face is the transition out of the military and back into the civilian world.  In the military you have the closest friends you may ever find.  You have a support system for anything from spiritual issues, legal mistakes, financial problems, and even family struggles.  Your food, clothes, and housing are also provided for you. 
But that all disappears when you get out.  Instead of sustainment and comradery, you are alone and unsupported. Suddenly instead of your job experience getting you promoted, your military job experience is irrelevant and can’t get you a job.  Instead of goals, schedules and incentives to remain physically fit, you lose a large part of your motivation to even be healthy. 
 You try to make new friends, but they don’t get your humor, understand your stories, or share your interests.  You try different activities, but they don’t have the same thrill as what you did in the military.
This difficulty transitioning out of the military is a huge underlining reason for the high suicide rate, homelessness, and addiction among those who have served our country.
                There are many Veteran groups, programs, and supports available to help those struggling with this difficult change.  But these programs can almost always use more funding and support.  So, I am inviting the world experience what it is like to be stuck wearing to different kinds of shoes in life and to help XLR8 Veteran Change by donating 22 coins to a veteran program.  A little bit of pocket change can help accelerate change for those who deserve it the most!

Ways to help:
Raise awareness and donate
Post a picture wearing two different kinds of shoes with the hashtag #XLR822change.  donate and post to a veteran's resource.

Accept the challenge
With different kinds of footwear (i.e. a boot and shoe, or a shoe and barefoot), do 22 grapevine steps left and right in under 22 seconds.  If you fail the challenge, donate 22 coins to a veteran organization.  Post your video of the challenge online with the hashtag #XLR822change.  Don't forget to challenge your friends!

Try the double dare
With different kinds of footwear then the first challenge, do 22 steps in each direction (22 steps left, right, forward, back) in under 22 seconds.  If you fail the challenge by failing to do it in time or you fall, double your donated amount.  Post your video of the challenge online with the hashtag #XLR822change challenge your friends to see if they can complete the double dare!

The XLR8 Advantage

There is a lot of research going into the XLR8 Program.  Utilizing the latest research, I have created a therapeutic tool that incorporates physical exercises to assist in the treatment of mental health issues.  This program is called Cognitive Physical Conditioning (CPC) and is only offered at XLR8 Therapy.  CPC can benefit a client by helping their body to heal from hormone and neuro-chemical deficiencies caused by their disorder.  This program has had incredible results both in a treatment setting and in homes.  CPC can improve clients’ ability to overcome mental disorders and nearly double their chance of success (from 57% after 18 months to 91% in only 8 months).  It is also an incredible tool that reduces relapse by 28%; both cognitive and physical.  These methods are so efficient they also reduce treatment length by 30%.

This means that CPC can help an addict recover quickly and completely and be less likely to fall back into addiction.  This means that a person who comes to XLR8 Therapy to shed the pounds is likely to lose nearly twice as much weight over the best fitness methods, lose the weight faster, and more likely to keep the weight off.  This means someone who is experiencing symptoms of PTSD can have a much better chance to be free of these symptoms in less time in treatment, and a reduced chance of having the symptoms return.
