Exciting news for Austin and Round Rock area gym enthusiasts: Iron Forge Gym has opened in Round Rock, Texas!
Alexander Training (Personal Training) at Iron Forge Gym
I am so happy to announce that I will be taking new clients at Iron Forge Gym! If you are looking for a personal trainer in Round Rock, this is the place for you. I would love to talk to you about your goals and help you make a customized plan.
If you’d like to learn more about me, read about my philosophy here. The gist of it is, I want to help you be as strong and capable and prepared for life as you can be.
Don’t worry; I’ll still be personal training in Austin at Big Tex Gym, too!
Each gym is pretty great, and each has a little different vibe. Both are real, solid training and both have great equipment and facilities.
Check out all your personal training options here.
Please feel free to contact me here about training if you’d like to talk about training at Iron Forge Gym, Big Tex Gym, or online training at your own facility.
Psst, Big Tex made the list of best gyms in Austin.
Strongman Training at Iron Forge Gym
Iron Forge Gym has an impressive strongman training area, complete with turf for sled work, yoke walks, sandbags, and stone medleys. There are loading platforms, logs, circus dumbbells, and the stones from around 75 to 400 pounds will soon live there too.
The ceiling is high enough for sandbag throws for competitors to practice height over bar throws.
The Gym Floor
The rest of the gym has a dedicated cardio area with mats and medicine balls for floor work and stretching.
The main gym floor has platforms, brand new barbells with great knurling (I approve), and plate loaded machines.
A secondary gym floor has an impressive cable system, racks free weights, and some accessory machines including pull-up stations, 45 degree back extensions and a multi-directional Smith machine. Super rare, and I’ll write a blog post about that machine soon.
The dumbbells run up to over 120 pounds, and there are barbells in fixed weights too.
The Rest of the Gym
The gym is now home to accomplished fighting, muay thai, and mixed martial arts coaches. The first floor of the gym has a large open area for fighting classes. They host a full schedule of classes, which you can get a membership for.
I love walking in to a great mma class. The fighters are so dedicated and hard working, and I love sharing space with them.
Iron Forge also has a beautiful studio with wood floors and mirrors. There is a separate posing room as well, with immaculate lighting.
Iron Forge is still building out all the extras, but it is rumored there will be a smoothie bar, lounge, cold plunge, infrared saunas, and tanning beds.
There are men’s and women’s locker rooms that have showers, lockers, and space, which is at a premium in gyms around Austin. Every time I go in the women’s locker room at Iron Forge, it gets cuter. Haven’t been in the men’s in a few weeks and I don’t anticipate going in there again, so I’ll ask my male clients for updates for you.
The gym is in a shopping center that has plenty of parking (hallelujah!), restaurants, boutiques, and Flix Brewhouse.
Come Visit Iron Forge Gym in Round Rock, Texas!
