Beyond Limits Veteran Program





Beyond Limits is a special program for veterans at no cost. This 12-week wellness program is for any veteran from any military branch who served in the armed forces. To qualify, you must have a disability rating from the Veteran Affairs. For 12 weeks, veterans receive in-depth training with our nationally certified strength coaches, registered dietitians and wellness coaches. They work side by side with other veterans throughout this program and strive to overcome any physical and mental challenges.
After completion of the program, Veterans will receive a 20% discount on a membership of choice, including a Family Membership, and pay NO Joiner Fee! Please email Julie Smith at to receive this benefit or visit our Membership Page for more information.
If you are a Veteran and currently have a Veteran Affairs disability rating and want to participate in our next Beyond Limits Program, apply below!


Please consider supporting this program. You can donate to the program directly or choose to sponsor a specific veteran whose story inspired you. (Read more about our Veteran below.) Beyond Limits is a FREE 12-Week Program for our injured veterans and would not be possible without the support of our program supporters and community members. 

The Oshkosh Community YMCA is committed to keeping this program 100% free for our applicants. Your tax-exempt donations allow us to continue to provide hope through exercise and nutrition modalities. Thank you for your support!

Below are a few sponsorship opportunities for you to consider:


T-shirt Sponsor  |  $25
