“When I found out about FitOps and how they were working with these heroic veterans who have made it through war but were struggling back at home, I made it my mission to get involved. My goal in bear crawling a marathon is to raise enough money to sponsor veterans and put them through FitOps camp and help them reach their goals,” the 27-year-old said.

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, it’s still up in the air if New York City Marathon will happen in November.
One of Manhattan’s top fitness trainers, however, is gearing up for all of its 26.2 miles in a very unique way.
Devon Levesque, a partner in the high-end training facility Performix House in New York City, is training to do the marathon in a bear crawl where he will run on his hands and feet.
He told Fox News: “Bear crawl is a full body exercise where you walk on your hands and feet. It takes a lot of core, quad, and shoulder strength since all of your weight is on your hands, and your toes and back are parallel to the ground.”
He’s like "Fight Club," in 2020, without the anarchy.
