VetsFirst says you will most likely need to show proof that you served in the military. That proof might include a Department of Veterans Affairs identification card, a DD-214, a membership card for a veterans service organization, or a photo of you wearing your military uniform. Although national chains may offer promotions, you should still check with the location you plan to visit to see if they are participating in the promotion. For a complete list of businesses participating, visit VetsFirst.

As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
