Local gym caters to disabled veterans

A different kind of gym just opened in Las Vegas.

People who were disabled while serving our country get free memberships at Branded One Crossfit.

William Oettinger served in the Marines and was a police officer. While on duty, he shattered his pelvis. You can't tell that watching him workout at Branded One Crossfit.

"They push me to my limit, but they don't make me feel bad for doing what I can't," said Oettinger.

The name Branded One is meant to reference someone who is marked, in this case, those who are scarred in the line of duty.

"Seeing that look on his face like how excited he was and how he just feels alive again, and that's not just the disabled vets," said Nick McCombs, the gym's owner.

Anyone can join Branded One Crossfit, but disabled firefighters, police officers, veterans, or active duty service members can workout for free.
