Followings is the example of class I lever which is used by our body. 

Our skull is the lever arm and the neck muscles at the back of the skull provide the force (effort) to hit football while we lift our head up against the football (load). When the neck muscles relax, our head nods/hits forward.

Following is the example of class II lever which is used by our body. Our calf muscles and Achilles tendon provide the effort when the calf muscle contracts. The load is our body weight and is lifted by the effort (muscle contraction).

Following is the example of class III lever which is used by our body. The biceps muscle provides the effort (force) and bends the forearm against the weight of the forearm and any weight that the hand might be holding.
