That means regardless of your current condition, we will scale the workout to make it work for you. Whether you are an elite athlete or have never lifted a dumbbell, Iron Fit workouts will help you get stronger and build your body to function well in your daily life and resist injury.
Have a pre-existing physical limitation? Drew has experience training individuals with many conditions including athletes with C7 spinal cord injuries who can only use their upper body, athletes with cerebral palsy, missing limbs, autism. He is not afraid of training people with dysfunction, believes in empowering people to believe in themselves.
The Iron Fit program is designed for universal scalability, making it the perfect application for any committed person, regardless of experience. All of Iron Fit's workouts are based on functional movements; we scale weight, movements and intensity for each athlete. All full-range, full-body movements are core movements of life, found everywhere from early childhood to advanced life stages. They are in theory and practice (constantly varied, functional movements performed at relatively high intensity).Programming at Iron Fit works to deliver an increased level of fitness that will assist in improving all aspects of strength, explosiveness, balance, mobility and injury prevention by design, utilizing techniques that are broad and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing.
Iron Fit workouts draw on many disciplines. You'll become familiar with a broad range of movements and exercise philosophies like gymnastics, rowing, plyometrics, Olympic weightlifting, power lifting, kettlebell work, and more.
We work with athletes who range in age from 5 - 85+. You're never too young or too old to be proactive about taking care of your physical machine. Drew has worked with seniors recovering from falls, as a youth intervention counselor, as a platoon leader - he brings a level of experience, discipline and compassion that you won't find in many coaches or trainers.
You'll learn about safety, technique, and terminology and how to execute with proper form. Some exercises you may have already tried - like running, weight lifting, jumping rope, sit-ups, or push-ups. Other moves may be completely new, like a clean-and-jerk or front squat. And you'll be performing both these new and familiar moves in challenging combinations designed to help you gain strength, increase endurance, overcome injury, and improve self image.
In 2005, Drew was wounded in Iraq and subsequently was retired from the Army due to brain trauma and physical injuries. When we was finally cleared to resume strenuous physical activity, he was deconditioned and 100 pounds overweight.
He started CrossFit, and despite the challenges of those first weeks, Drew was soon coaching other athletes while he continued his own physical, mental, and emotional recovery. He had been training soldiers for years so fitness coaching came naturally. He also decided to attend college to pursue a career as a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant, because OT had been so instrumental in his own recovery.
Drew experienced firsthand the benefits of a multi-dimensional approach to strengthening the body, and ultimately took over a training facility so he could apply his broad background to helping others. He has worked to build a like-minded community of people with common goals for improving their lives. The result is that his members experience measurable results in less time and with less frustration.
