forged STRENGTH is part of the Ironstone Balance Program and is all about developing strong lean muscle that keeps your body healthy, restores function, decreases injury risk, and improves body composition. Using a moderate intensity circuit format we will give you everything your body needs as the perfect compliment to your yoga, spin, or bootcamp classes. You already have the #SweatLife – welcome to the #StrongLife
Why Strength Training?
In order to stay healthy and get the body composition you really want you need to incorporate strength training into your fitness routine. Strength training doesn’t have to be barbells and squat racks! The Ironstone forged STRENGTH class makes strength training easy and accessible by focusing on functional full-body compound movements. If you already do yoga, run or spin, and move your body intensely in a HIIT, bootcamp, or kickboxing class then forged is exactly what you need to round out your training.
The science behind strength training is clear: Done properly, it will improve joint function, decrease injury risk from repetitive strains like work tasks or exercise (any runners out there?), improve posture, promote more efficient weight loss, and give your muscles more definition. Strength training doesn’t mean your muscles have to get bigger; size and strength aren’t accomplished the same way. Add appropriate strength training to your routine and you can expect all other aspects of your fitness improve dramatically.
What will a class be like?
Expect to use a variety of bodyweight and loaded exercises that hit a combination of upper body and lower body push and pull movements along with a healthy dose of core work. You will rotate through stations under the watchful eye of a coach in a different format or style each class. Some weeks you might push a sled and press dumbbells overhead, others you may find yourself flipping a tire doing, hitting some bent over rows, and squatting with a kettlebell. We can make these exercises as easy or as difficult as you need them to be so your strength and function continues to progress. What you won’t see in this class is highly technical olympic weightlifting or barbell movements – here we are all about the basics in a fun and efficient format.

Attendance is included in Ironstone Balance Fitness Monthly Plans or Ironstone Strength & Conditioning all-in plans, but classes are also accessible on the CrossFit + Punch Card and the Balance Punch Card.
