WE LIFT WEIGHTS.
YOU LIFT US.

At Lift For Life Gym, we lift because:

29% of crimes occur between the hours of 3pm and 7pm.
Youth with mentors are 46% less likely to use illegal drugs.
135,000 kids in St. Louis are at risk for hunger

We lift to give an alternative to at risk youth of St. Louis

Having an alternative can mean everything to a child in the inner city of St. Louis. Just ask Jerome. Jerome is only one of the hundreds of children that we serve each year.

Stories like Jerome’s¬†reverberate throughout the walls of Lift for Life Gym.
