Veterans Path to Success: Fall 2018

Vail Veterans Program, in partnership with Johnson & Johnson’s Human Performance Institute (HPI), offers VVP alumni a three-day training program focusing on performance psychology, exercise physiology, and nutrition. Participants learn how to expand their physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual energy in order to sustain increased engagement, performance, and resiliency. This training program assists wounded veterans in acknowledging their “old story,” while helping them to identify their “new story” for future success outside of the military.
