The goal: to makeover the rough-hewn gym at Anderson Prep Academy into a facility worthy of its student athletes.

"Why would we come here and work out?" the students asked. "The equipment's no good, so we won't get results even if we go." Major Dorman, a coach at the public charter military school in Anderson, Indiana, couldn't refute their argument without being a hypocrite: He had been working out at a local commercial gym in town for the very same reason. "I realized that if I was going to try and be a salesman for what we have here, I had to be our number one customer, too," he says. So Dorman cancelled his gym membership and started training at the school's facility. Dorman knows that when it comes to playing sports, strength and conditioning can be the great equalizer, helping to make up for a lack of size or talent. Growing up, he played sports even though he was smaller than most kids his age. During his freshman year in high school, his coach pulled him aside and asked him not to play; he was so small that they feared for his safety. That prompted Dorman to start training, and his body responded by growing bigger and stronger. He learned an important lesson, too. Dorman wanted to transfer that feeling of empowerment to his own students. Yet that subpar gym was an obstacle to competing with other schools that had better facilities. A patchwork of old and new equipment included handmade pieces to mismatched bumper plates. Old kegs filled with sand or water were scattered around, a DIY attempt at training with imbalanced loading. Enter Bodybuilding.com's nonprofit organization, Lift Life. The goal: to transform the rough-hewn gym at Anderson Prep into a facility worthy of its student athletes. Out went slippery flooring; in came turf for pushing sleds. In all, 130,000 pounds of new equipment was hauled into the gym over two weeks. The end result embodies Bodybuilding.com's "We Change Lives" slogan. This is the third weight room transformation led by the Lift Life foundation—the first was in Firth, Idaho, and the second was in Knoxville, Tennessee —but it's definitely not the last. We're already hard at work for our fourth project in Livingston, Montana. If giving young athletes a head start in life is as exciting for you as it is for us, you can donate to the Lift Life Foundation or nominate a school to be considered for a future renovation.to be considered for a future renovation.

Gyms in high schools honestly make athletes so much better, the impact is huge. Our high school just got a weight room my freshman year and over the summer I gained 25lbs.. definitely a privilege for most schools

In my country Morocco, we only had a small field for basketball or handball that looks like it came out of romans age, we would do sports 1h in a week, where you kind of do nothing more than runing a bit and the time is up and it was forbidden to play on the fields when its not your 1h of the week , i always loved sports even tought i wasn't that healthy to begin with, wanted to practise basketball but nowhere to practise and yeah, i wish i had the chance to practise sports from young age
