HOW THE WARRIOR WITHIN
PROJECT WAS BORN
Hi, I’m Luke Douglass, the founder of Warrior Within Project. After a life changing event occurred post deployment and posting in 2013, I began to gravitate towards; adventure, health and fitness to rediscover the colour in my life.
I fell madly in love with CrossFit, Travelled and tested my mind and bodies capacity outside the gym countless times. Drawing on hours of training, coaching and chasing a Crossfit career, I established myself as a Physical Training Instructor in the Royal Australian Air Force helping our tactical athletes and military leaders of the future better succeed through individual and group coaching. On this journey I was exposed to the mental health struggles within my industry, making me more aware of myself and the men struggling around me.
After completing a huge 300+ km run from Sydney Opera House to Parliament House, I was burnt out, broken, and about to become a first time father. My world flipped upside down, and shaken up more than I could of ever expected. I was humbled by the responsibilities of a husband and father as well as my passion to show up 1% better each day.
From that The Warrior Within Project was born, an integrative health and wellbeing program focusing on a sustainable yet holistic lifestyle geared towards longevity while still having time for all the things I love doing.
