Beyond Limits Veteran Program




Beyond Limits is a special FREE Program for Veterans. This FREE 6-week exercise program is for any injured veteran from any military branch who served in active combat duty in any war. Any disability rating can apply for this program. For 6 weeks, veterans receive personal, 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 Joiners 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 6-Week Program for our injured veterans and would not be possible without the support of our program supporters and community members. Our goal is to keep this program 100% FREE for participants and need your help to make that happen! The Oshkosh Community YMCA cannot implement this program without you.

Please help us give back to our Nation's heroes and sponsor a Beyond Limits Veteran today! Your tax-exempt donation allows us to continue to provide hope through movement to those with physical or mental impairments. Thank you for your support!

$1000 Sponsors 1 Veteran  |  $6500 Sponsors 7 Veterans  

Each sponsor will receive a biography and information about the sponsored Veteran. You will learn their personal story, challenges and hopes and aspirations. As a sponsor, you are also invited to participate in a weekly Friday Warrior workout! All sponsors also receive a Beyond Limits t-shirt. 
Give back to our nation's heroes and sponsor a Beyond Limits Veteran today!
