The LIFT Staff enjoying a happy moment.

When homeless individuals began showing up at activites for Jim White Fitness & Nutrition Studios, the Virginia Beach studio's owners realized how valuable their business' services could be to the homeless. They created LIFT Fitness Foundation, a nonprofit providing nutrition, fitness and job placement training and services to the homeless and those in need.

Students support LIFT's 30-, 60- and 90-day fitness and nutrition programs by leading courses in fitness, nutrition and food shopping, providing process quality assessment and improvement and more at locations across Southside Hampton Roads.
