MISSION STATEMENT:

MVP's mission is to match up former Combat Vets and former professional athletes together -- after the uniform comes off -- to give them a new team to tackle the transition together. MVP shows them they are NOT alone.

History:

Jay Glazer created MVP in 2015 to address this important challenge.

Jay has spent years working with warriors from the ring and the gridiron, many of these men and women have also struggled to apply their skills beyond their field of battle. 

MVP was created to leverage Jay's unique role at the crossroads of all of these warriors. By merging veterans with players, these warriors can benefit from each other's strengths, experience and abilities to unlock their full potential - and lead their families, communities and country towards a better future. Merging Vets and Players ensures these men and women know that the challenges they are facing are far more about who they are - Warriors - than what they did in the military or on the field. In reality, that is a title that no one can ever take from you. We work on what is between the ears and behind the rib cage.

Both war fighters and football players need something to fight for once the uniform comes off, and your service to country or time on the field is over. Without real purpose for the man on your right and left, it can be easy to feel lost...

When and Where is MVP?

MVP is built on our team's years of experience coaching, mentoring, and leading men and women to their highest level of performance - in every sphere of life. MVP's work takes place in two locations: Unbreakable Performance Center in Los Angeles, CA at 9 a.m. Every Sunday Morning and Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas, NV at 2 p.m. every Thursday for professional athletes and Veterans. 

If you are a combat veteran or a player, sign up to take part in this effort.

Most people don’t understand what it’s like to have your life and livelihood wrapped up in a singular endeavor. The training, mindset, focus and challenges become part of who you are as a person. Your very existence is on that field and it doesn’t matter if it is a battlefield or a football field . The rules of engagement may be different but it is still the passion of your being. Whether you are an athlete or a soldier (and I’ve been both), there’s no difference! We share a warriors spirit, an innate understanding of the commitment and a life spent in pursuit of excellence. We also know what it feels like to walk away from that life for one reason or another. It is the recognition of this shared understanding and the belief that these two groups of warriors can help each other cope with the challenges that face an altered existence. Through MVP we will help each other find a happy life after fighting for what we love!
