Military Athletic Training Services Nationwide
Strive provides American Medical Association (AMA) Athletic Training Services for the U.S. Military. We work hard to keep military recruits in shape and to prevent injuries from occurring.
Athletic trainers working with soldiers don’t just diagnosis and treat injuries after they happen. They take steps to prevent those injuries from ever happening in the first place. This includes creating sport-specific conditioning and strengthening programs to build muscles and endurance. Trainers may offer nutritional advice and weight management strategies to optimize health and safety.

Military recruits, typically between ages 17 – 24 sustain an alarming rate of injury. The U.S. Army reports that one of four male recruits and one of two female recruits are injured at least once, during Basic Combat Training. Experts agree that one of the most effective ways to prevent injuries is to provide proper training.
Soldiers commonly suffer from concussions while preparing for deployment or combat. In fact, 85% of concussions among military personnel happen during training. Strive American Medical Association Athletic Training gives soldiers the training they need.
Is an athletic trainer the same as a fitness trainer at a gym?
No. An athletic trainer is very different from a fitness trainer or personal trainer. Athletic trainers are health care professionals with degrees in athletic training. And 70% of athletic trainers have masters degrees in the field.
