MISSION & VISION
At Guardian For Heroes Foundation, we humbly and proudly carry the torch Chris Kyle left us and champion the cause to restore hope, renew spirits, and replenish energy for combat veterans transitioning to post military life.
Guardian for Heroes Foundation provides free, in-home fitness equipment, facilitation of donated health club memberships, individualized programs, personal training and life coaching to in-need veterans with disabilities,
We use physical and mental fitness to spark conversation and create a source of support for combat veterans.
At Guardian for Heroes Foundation, we believe in supporting our Combat Veterans from the inside out as they acclimate to civilian life. While we begin with physical needs, we understand the scars from war extend far deeper than that, which is why we provide group and spousal support, personal counseling, proactive experiential therapy and life coaching.
If you or someone you know is a Combat Veteran (or a loved one) struggling with Post Traumatic Stress from combat or overcoming a disability as a result of war, please review our services, and let us know if we can be of benefit to you. We work with Veterans from across the United States.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED
Guardian for Heroes Foundation would not exist without the support of the donors and volunteers who make it possible for us to fulfill our mission to help Veterans throughout the United States.

Following four tours in Iraq, CPO Chris Kyle, U.S. Navy SEAL, came back home to North Texas with a desire to still serve his country. He encountered a couple of his brothers-in-arms who were having difficulties re-acclimating to civilian life – like going to a gym – because of struggles with Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) from combat deployment. Chris began researching several gyms, exercise facilities, and workout equipment organizations for possible donations, which lead him to a Dallas-based fitness equipment supplier. This chance encounter changed both of their lives and gave birth to a foundation that could help Combat Veterans navigate the physical, mental, and emotional struggles from the inside out.
Chris’s passion was to help Veterans get back to being creative and useful through physical fitness. This passion, coupled with the spirit of that initial meeting and in the hope to serve that brought Chris and the fitness equipment supplier together in 2011, led to the founding and evolution of the Guardian for Heroes Foundation we see today. Guardian for Heroes Foundation is reaching across the street and across the country to serve, support, and strengthen our Veterans to help them re-acclimate to civilian life in this great country that they fought to protect. We proudly continue this mission in the honor and memory of Chris, our founder, in order to carry on his passion to continue serving our service men and women.
