ZipCode Wellness Hosts Fitness Fundraiser for Veterans’ Non-Profit

Join a free fitness class fundraiser at Lustre Pearl South

Wellness company launches in South Austin with a free fitness class fundraiser helping veterans and people overcoming addictions, through exercise.

AUSTIN, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, May 31, 2022 / — ZipCode Wellness, a new fitness and wellbeing company in South Austin, is giving people in their local community an opportunity to move, sweat and give back, during the company’s launch on Saturday, June 25th. The local business has partnered with Outsiders Anonymous, a non-profit gym helping veterans and people overcoming addictions, through exercise. In the spirit of both companies, ZipCode Wellness will hold a 30-minute fitness class for all levels, being hosted at Lustre Pearl South, the same venue for all of ZipCode Wellness fitness classes.

“My wife and I have recently moved to South Austin and giving back to our local community is important to both of us,” stated Rudd Rayns, Founder of ZipCode Wellness. “Our purpose is to build healthier communities and help people prioritize their wellbeing. When we saw that Outsiders Anonymous does this for free, for people recovering from addiction, we knew we wanted to help and partner. To be able to hold this event but also our fitness classes at Lustre Pearl South is also a fantastic fit, as their focus on supporting local businesses and community events is exactly what we’re all about.”

Researchers have observed increases in substance use and drug overdoses in the US since the COVID-19 pandemic began. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) in a 2020 report, approximately 19 million people aged 18 or older had a substance use disorder in the past year and nearly 5 million veterans had either an alcohol use, substance use disorder and/or mental illness. The National Institute of Drug Abuse reports that between 37 and 50 percent of veterans returning from Afghanistan and Iraq have been diagnosed with mental disorder associated with substance use disorders (SUDs) and 63% of those diagnosed with SUDs also met the criteria for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

“Outsiders Anonymous is a 100% free gym and active, sober community for individuals in recovery, veterans with PTSD, and the community that supports them,” explains Adam Holt, Founder of Outsiders Anonymous. “We have a full weight room, fitness classes, deliberate cold therapy, Spartan Race training, and certified peer support – all free. By leveraging the effects of fitness on the brain in early recovery, we are helping the Outsider run from relapse and create a life worth living.”
