Updates from LIFT HQ!

Hey there, Lift for the 22 community!

The first quarter of the year has come and gone, and it has been crazy exciting! Last month we were able to sign a new lease and give LFT-MKE a new home for the next five years!

With class participation, growth, and community support. We can serve over 50,000 veteran families throughout the Milwaukee County area. This is all thank you to you and our current class members!

We have found that Fitness has been an integral tool and re-integrating military families back into the communities

CrossFit in particular is an integral part of the military culture. It is currently utilized today in the Armed Forces for combat fitness and readiness training. Armed with this knowledge, we aim to maintain continuity with our service members.

That is why we welcome the United States Army Milwaukee Recruiting BN future soldier program to facilitate a space for individuals to get in the physical skills necessary to be successful in their military careers.

Our hope with this program is to be the home they are familiar with when they return home; We can offer a wellness-based social environment that influences a healthy and physically active lifestyle.

With a large network and relationships with other veterans servicing organizations, we are equipped to connect these veterans outward to gain the assistance their family needs.

Starting next month, we will be facilitating a unique 22-fitness Boot Camp dedicated to those individuals participating in the Goodwill community outreach program. You will be able to find this class on the class schedule, and you are all welcome to just us!

Starting Friday, March 24, at 5:45pm, (with an additional heat at 6:45pm) we will be offering a free fitness community workout open to the general public called the Red Friday community workout. The Red Friday workout will be held on the 3rd Friday of each month thereafter. We invite all of you to participate in this instructor lead partner-based community workout and encourage all of you participating in the class to wear red! This workout will be scalable for ALL fitness levels so don't be bashful.

R.E.D. Friday was created to remind people of our heroes overseas and show that we are thinking of them. People across the country wear red every Friday to serve as a reminder and spread the message of how important it is that we keep our troops in our thoughts. ​

The class will be approximately 45 minutes long, with complimentary refreshments to follow. Keep an eye on your email. We will be sending out RSVP invites to upcoming class times!

Keep F’n Moving!
