Keeping Calm


As coronavirus deaths accelerate in the U.S., the outbreak has left Americans in a constant state of anxiety.

More than 400,000 people worldwide have been infected and over 18,000 have died, according to a count kept by Johns Hopkins University.

FitOps, sponsored through Performix, the brand known for premium sports nutrition products, helps Veterans returning from combat and prevent them from dying by suicide find new purpose as personal trainers. The nonprofit organization is dedicated to helping former active duty members apply the skills they learned in the military in civilian life.

Here is advice from two Vets in the program on how to remain calm during a high-stress situation.
