Iron Barbell has changed my life, I was overweight and had lost any drive or passion when it came to training. Iron Barbell ignited my old passion for fitness and now I’m in the best shape of my life

Dropped in for a barbell workout while passing through and just loved the place. Great community, awesome setup and Adam is a very knowledgeable and welcoming coach. I picked up quite a few weightlifting tips that will help me improve my technique. To top it off there is also a great little coffee shop attached to it. Can’t wait to drop in again when I’m in town next time.

Wayne Van der Hoeven

Had a introductory session with Adam this morning and he seemed to be both very knowledgeable and on point with my needs. I joined in on a strength session and loved it. Looking forward to signing up and starting a new program. Everyone was really inviting and encouraging which was awesome. I had a total knee replacement one year ago and I’m keen to build up my strength and increase my mobility. Adam was also keen to assist me with that.

Iron Barbell was the next progression for me and my fitness journey! Jess & Adam have a way with teaching body mechanics without discrediting anyone else! Who knew, there’s a more efficient way to complete every single exercise. They’re professional and have an Aura about them which makes you feel safe. Key objective is to keep us FREE from INJURY. Equipment on point. Value for $$$. Highly rated and highly recommended. Genuine, Legit and just nice people!
