Hey guys, just wanted to let everyone know that we have paused all payments and nothing will be charged until we are open again. All people who have paid up front memberships will get time added onto their term and we will have refunds/credits available for the time missed this month.
♥️We want to take a second and tell you how amazed we have been by the incredible number of people who have messaged us to tell us to keep charging them during this time. It’s so kind, unbelievable really, but we just don’t feel right about it. So sincerely, thank you…but we’re sorry. Nope.
Don’t you worry, there will be lots of ways to support us available to you soon through supplement & merchandise sales, online programming, etc.😊
We appreciate you all so much!
Everyone take good care & we can’t wait to see you all again soon!
Until then, we’ve created a private Facebook page for Iron Heart Gym members, come join if you want to!
This will be a place to share workouts, nutrition ideas, motivation, accountability and enjoy a little Iron Heart togetherness and support ♥️
It is with the heaviest of hearts that we are letting you know we have decided that it is best to temporarily close until April 1st.
We are deeply sorry for the inconvenience and feel awful as we know that we are your escape, your happy place. Trust us, we are devastated as well – we need you guys as much as you need us.
However, we have to do this and do our part to help this potentially catastrophic issue facing our world. Social distancing is the only thing that will stop the spread and this sacrifice is the least we can do right now.
We will of course be honouring all passes by adding on the time lost to paid up front memberships and offering refunds for time missed on pay as you go memberships. When we re-open on April 1st we will have a Request for Credit/Refund form available for members to submit for the two weeks of lost time. If, heaven forbid, we are not able to re-open as anticipated, we will at that point pause monthly payments.
Be sure to follow our social media for updates.
We hope that all of you and your loved ones are doing ok and you are weathering this storm ok. Our thoughts are with you, this is going to be a massive struggle for so many on every level.
Thank you for your support, friendship & business, we are grateful for our incredible community and look forward to putting this behind us all very soon ♥️
Happy International Women’s Day♥️Inspired, amazed, humbled & girl crushing DAILY on all the powerful, brave, kind, compassionate & beautiful women in our Iron Heart Gym community.
This is a bit of novel, but I’ve been thinking all day about how the women in the generations before us worked so HARD to create change for US and – how am I helping? I feel compelled to contribute in a some way, how can I not with a feisty activist minded mama and a dad who raised me with so much gentleness and love and support…they made me feel like I was capable of absolutely anything.
We should ALL feel this from somewhere or someone in our life.
This is why I think I feel it’s our duty to push our fitness industry forward and to help destroy the dated stereotypes that are still lingering behind. I want this next generation of women being raised right now to never even question if they belong lifting weights.
If they should train differently from a man. If they should behave or dress a certain way when training. If they should hide their strength so as to not embarrass a guy. If they should subdue their passion and absolute joy of feeling powerful and comfortable in their skin. If they should focus just on getting skinny. If they should make looking pretty their only goal. If they should hide away for fear of being looked at.
Nah. Nope. None of it.
I want to women to lift because it makes us feel alive. Fully human. Find the potential of what our bodies can do and chase it and celebrate it!!
It makes us better at life. At all the things we do as women, being strong and healthy is directly beneficial to our careers, our sports, our hobbies, as moms, wives, friends & caretakers.
When giving a tour recently I was asked: “What are your classes for women and where is your ladies section?”
To which I gestured broadly – everywhere, all of it, all the things, all the classes, all the areas, it’s all for everyone.
Avoiding discomfort is not how we move forward. There’s always a fix.
My goal is to ensure all people, female or male – feel welcomed, empowered, motivated, educated & excited by their successes!
We’re erasing gender divisions and could not be more proud of it.
All of you, the women who proudly lift alllll the weights everyday – thank you for being here with us pushing forward and our men – thank you as well for treating us…like humans, with respect, like we belong. Because…we do.
