THE LIFT FOR THE 22 TEAM


Carter Davis   /   Founder   /   Chief Executive Officer 

"Doc" Carter is a Navy veteran, who served his time as a medical corpsman. As he was primarily attached to Marine units, he earned the coveted title of "Devil Doc".  After separating the Navy  and experiencing his own battle with suicide, he found solace in his veteran brothers, and the gym. 

From his own journey came the vision to give all veterans the same healthy outlet and support network that saved his own life. Still carrying the passion to save others, he is finishing his degree as a registered nurse. 

Dennis C Wright II   /   Founder   /   Chief Operating Officer

Dennis is a Marine veteran, father, and our Chief Of Operations. Like countless other veterans who had been out for years, he still craved the camaraderie and satisfaction of serving. One fateful day in 2015 he met Carter Davis, who had a shared passion to fight suicide, and an idea to give all veterans gym memberships.

Today, they are making their vision a reality, helping their brother and sister veterans nationwide. When he is not planning the Fitness Tour or managing our clothing line, you can find him running disaster relief operations abroad with other veterans.

Wade Luethi   /   Founder   /   Chief Technical Officer
