Lift For Life
Non-profit fitness facility created to support local veterans, military, youth, and special olympics through the art of weight training and physique transformations.
“At Lift for Life, our passion is providing support for veterans and youth in need of the mental and physical health benefits that come from improved fitness.”
Zack Barnard, Lift for Life Director
Depression and suicide have long been sad realities for too many people in the United States. The reason Lift for Life (L4L) was created is to combat the precipitous rate at which this is rising, especially among our veterans and youth. Through the implementation of our advanced strength training and physique transformation programs, we seek to help members of the armed forces who have placed themselves in harm’s way in defense of our country.
Our vision for the Lift for Life program is to instill the passion and commitment we have for lifting into our participants. While some of us might not be able to relate to those fighting PTSD, there have been times when training and body building was what got us up in the morning and gave us purpose. We think everyone needs this, knowing a challenge awaits us, as this is what motivates us and gets us excited. Even after decades of training, we still have goals and go into the gym week after week chasing them. Lift for Life gives us an opportunity to give others that same drive and anticipation.
