St. Louis Commercial Photography: Lift for Life Gym

I recently went to Lift For Life Gym and took pictures for them to use in their promotional and fundraising materials. The gym opened in 1988 and it is located just north of downtown St. Louis. Not only does it provide a place for its young members to exercise, but it also gives them a place to get a nutritious meal, do homework, hang out with their friends, and learn. Kids earn Gym "dollars" for assisting and good behavior, and they can then redeem their money for special field trips, movie tickets, and more. To the kids, the Gym truly is a haven and a second home.

If that's not enough, all of this is provided to them and their parents free of charge. Here's how you can help them out.

I hope these photos give you an idea of the great work that goes on there and the fantastic kids this program reaches and helps.


  1. Great shots Jonathan, I love the depth-of-field on some of these.

  2. Thank you, Jonathan, for making us aware of this wonderful place! Great photos, too, of course!
