Justin Matejcek (in his own words): I founded and currently serve as President of Veterans Adventure Group -an organization focused on training teams of veterans to thrive in extreme environments. I served 5 years in the military in a unique unit providing combat search and rescue and other combat related tasks. During that time I deployed to Afghanistan twice. Sharing physical fitness with others has always been a passion of mine, which led me to become a personal trainer and found my nonprofit. I aim to empower others to accomplish amazing feats.
