Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do I have to fundraise a certain amount to participate?
A: No! The point is to raise awareness and participation in the community. Fundraising is great, and allows us to do incredible things for veterans, but we focus on engagement. Invite your friends, talk about veterans and their service, even find a vet to talk to and thank, that is participation!
Q: Do I have to own or run a gym to participate?
A: No! Anyone who wants to participate may do so! We just ask that you have a basic level of fitness before you attempt this event, and have a buddy with you when you do it.
Q: Where did the idea for W4W come from?
A: Our friends at Iron Tribe Fitness came up with the great idea, and ran an incredible event in early 2011. Partnering up with Team Red, White, and Blue (www.teamRWB.org), we have joined the movement to improve the way Veterans are re-integrated into their communities.
Q: You say we are going global, what does that mean?
A: We have affiliates in Canada, Germany, Italy, Australia, Iraq, UAE, and Afghanistan that will be WODding right along with you this year! Please contact us on Facebook if you would like to partner your affiliate with a deployed Soldier!

Iron Tribe Fitness
Iron Tribe Fitness - Headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama, where they own six functional group fitness gyms, Iron Tribe has franchised their life changing business model into markets across the United States, where they are not only transforming lives at a rapid rate, but also making an impact by giving back.
In 2011, Iron Tribe's Partner & COO Jim Cavale, reached out to a lifelong friend in Team RWB co-founder Mike Erwin, and the two devised what became WOD For Warriors. Run originally at Iron Tribe's 2nd-ever gym, WOD For Warriors has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Team RWB and is run once per year at not only each Iron Tribe gym, but at gyms throughout the world.
