LIFT LOCAL.

 

We never underestimate the power of community. A wellness space designed to lift yourself up

and bring others along with you. 

 

Lift local means supporting your neighbors. It means a gym that includes everyone, a place to celebrate

and respect all bodies. Regardless of how you love to move, we have what you need to get your sweat on.

 

JOIN US TODAY.

WHO WE ARE

 

We bring family to fitness. After buying the gym in late 2019, our owners, John and Jess, worked to

create a wellness space which reflected the personal atmosphere of a family-owned business and

delivered the range and variety of a commercial gym. 

 

Using skills gained from years as a nurse working with marginalized populations, Jess has dedicated her

time to create a gym experience where everyone feels seen and capable. Her passion? Helping people meet both physical and emotional goals through healthy movement. 

 

John brings 20 years of experience in the fitness industry to the table. Motivated by bringing people together through the common goal of self-improvement, he uses his knowledge to help transform lives. For him, providing the tools for people to create their own change is what it’s all about. 

 

The heart and soul of our business? Vivienne, the daughter of John and Jess. She is a passionate reminder of why we work hard in the present to improve the future. A strong girl, who encourages us to remain curious, practice kindness and celebrate perseverance. 



                                                                                                   

WHY WE LOVE WHAT WE DO

 

Healthy movement changes lives. A healthy version of you is the most helpful thing to society. By creating a safe space for all folx, we strive to be a welcoming piece of the First Hill Community. 

 

We are excited to provide a place for people to engage in exercise, regardless of their access to outdoor space at home. Whether you love yoga, strength-training, cardio, group fitness classes or dance, we make sure we have the equipment you need.
