Hey Iron Soul I don’t know you but I know you’re better than your most expensive competition and I’d love to try and steer some business your way and save the community some money.

ABQ gymfolk: DO NOT do business with the cheats and crooks at Sports and Wellness if you dislike being robbed. I signed up for a membership with a training package. The trainers were disorganized and unprofessional, the air conditioning was out for most of the summer(!), and when I repeatedly tried to cancel, they continued to bill me membership and late fees because I hadn’t canceled in person at the location I had signed on at, despite them never having mentioned this requirement and me informing them multiple times that I could no longer reach that location due to giving up my car bc insurance was too high and them saying they’d happily accommodate that. Eventually they caved and just let me cancel over the phone- and sent the fraudulent $500 balance to collections. I asked as a condition of that that I never be contacted by them again. Just today they started spamming my cell number again, despite being informed repeatedly beforehand that such solicitation would be harassment.

Sports and Wellness is a cesspool of greed and dishonesty, a loan shark tank in the shape of a fitness center. They’re harder to cancel on than CenturyLink, and almost as ethical as a pyramid scheme. If this pandemic bankrupts the entire organization, it will likely be the first time either Sports and Wellness or covid-19 has made our community better off financially. Please go out of business, asap, if that’s what it takes for you to treat your clientele like people and not payouts.

You’d get a better overall workout experience with better customer service by getting arrested and sentenced to roadwork as community service. Fortunately there are middle options like Iron Soul. Maybe if I had gone there, I’d have another $500 to spend on training, possibly even under air-conditioning.
I just saw this and thought. This City needs a Hero...Its your time to shine Eric!
Good luck and best lifts to everyone competing in the USPA Nationals today!
Good luck to all the iron soul lifters and all the iron angels lifting today! You'll be on my mind!!!
Hang tough Eric Ironsoul! Great work with the event and the team!!!
Thank you Eric for your gym! I was expecting to enjoy my first day, and I did!!
Hello! So, are the new digs an expansion of where you are now, or are they in a new location entirely?
What are deadlifting socks?
Thanks again Eric for the excellent tee, and for having my favorite gym west of the Mississippi. Hope all my Iron Soul friends post lots of PRs in up coming competitions
Can you guys recommend a place to try on lifting belts?

I wish I could explain to you how much this man has shown me. It goes beyond the immeasurable lifting advice and tips he’s given me. He’s taught me what true strength is, outside the gym, as a person. He’s a rare breed of man that always gives more than he takes. He doesn’t gatekeep a single piece of knowledge. If he knows it, he shares it. He’s like a father figure to me and I will never not be grateful for what he’s given me. Here’s to the best there ever was and ever will be! Happy birthday @eddycoan!!

227.5kg/501lb squat for @eddie_saizy at around 165 body weight. Unreal. Three weeks out from nationals!! Looks like a good second attempt to me! #powerlifting #albuquerquepowerlifting #ironsoul #ironsoulgym #uspapowerlifting

06/18/2021

Dom came from Los Angeles to Albuquerque to stay for six weeks (!) to learn all he can about lifting from our coaches, collectively, and to get as strong as possible while improving his physique. Six weeks. That was his plan. I’ve never seen anything like it. He trains 6 days a week on either strength, technique, stamina, and/or power with one of us. Sometimes twice a day. He’s at the three week mark now. Half way!! He’s thrown himself fully into clean eating. He takes 3-4 ten minute walks a day. He’s sleeping 7-8 hours. He’s done every single thing every person here has told him since he’s been here and he is absolutely killing it! The other day we were lucky to have a little sit-down with our friend @stanefferding who graciously took time to privately educate the man on @theverticaldiet. You don’t see commitment like this every day. It’s a beautiful thing. Immensely proud to be a part of this. Thank you everyone!

@iron_lion220 @ironsoulgym programming got my squat dialed in. 600 for a new 1RM and 15lb PR.

06/03/2021

182.5kg/402.3lb!! Few people know how hard she has worked for this. 400 has eluded her for a while and we knew today was the day! Excellent performance all-around for @humanoid_form. Ended the day with a 341lb squat, 198lb bench and this sweet 402 deadlift. An absolutely phenomenal athlete and person. Truly a privilege to be a small part of her success!! #ironsoul #ironsoulgym #powerlifting #albuquerquepowerlifting #uspa #uspanationals #uspatexas

@humanoid_form If you have not already been made aware, @ironsoulgym is selling these red T-shirts until the end of May to donate 100% to local organizations supporting The Red Dress Movement #mmiw #mmiwg #mmiwg2s The purpose is to acknowledge the fact indigenous women, girls and two spirits are extremely more likely to be targets in violent crime, often resulting in murdered or missing individuals. The pictures to follow tell a bit about the history of why red is the chosen color for recognizing this issue and some of the statistical data provided by @theslowfactory MMIW stands for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and can be seen also as the acronym MMIWG2S to include girls and two spirits. This is a huge problem across North America and especially in the state I currently reside in - New Mexico. Please educate yourself, buy a shirt if you are able to, and also consider donating to other local/established organizations including those listed here @threesisterscollective @tewawomenunited @mmiwhoismissing From my understanding, this problem is definitely underrepresented and often masked by governmental agencies and law enforcement...so another way to provide some acknowledgement to this issue is to use your voice, especially if you seem to be of the demographic favored by law enforcement. Please read, share, and educate yourself and others on this issue, specifically if you are living in North America. Thank you. @mmdr @csvanw #mmiwawareness #educate #listen #share #learn #useyourvoice #donate #reddressmovement #reddressproject

For the remainder of the month of may, 100% of the proceeds from these these red shirts will be donated to grassroots and local organizations that work day in and day out to assist families victimized by #MMIWG and to spread awareness about the absolute crisis that is missing and murdered indigenous women and girls. Thank you all for your support. Please continue to support this and continue to make yourselves more aware.

Big boy done real good! PRs all around and this tight af 523 squat. Kid crushed it. If you’ve ever travelled a significant distance and competed, you know it’s a challenge over and above lifting in your home environment. Very proud to see this guy turn out and represent like this.

Posted @withregram • @bigfattynattydaddy I want to thank Craig at @hardcorebarbellvancouver for running an awesome meet, I met some cool and strong ass Washington cats!

I want to thank my coach, @ironsoulgym for always laying out the plan and making me not just a stronger person but a better person as well.

I want to thank my beautiful and lovely lady @_.saratonin._ for being there and supporting me. And being the best support system I could ask for, checking the flights for me and getting me ready ❤❤

I have to show all the support and love I got from my training partners from the night crew! @thatbearinbootyshorts @hoffthor_sigurdson

Thank you to all my family that was able to make it and support me as well!! I appreciate jt! @kameolashco @jconijn4 @abrahamkidane!

Went 7/9 at the meet, broke three New Mexico tested record in the squat 523lbs and deadlift 585lbs, and the total record of 647.5kg. Or 1424.5lbs. I hit bests in all 3 lifts this meet which was nice!! Missed my last bench and my last deadlift at 606lbs. Check out the video for an epic grinder!

No form breakdown under max tension. This is a good thing. A very very good thing.

Posted @withregram • @humanoid_form Didn’t intend to record this in slow motion but it’s made probably the coolest gym video I’ve done in awhile and I am really fu**in happy about it! 80% bar weight at 260 lbs and worked up to 3 red bands for max effort single, so through ~110 lbs of tension !! Don’t know the spotter but he knew who Cardiac Arrest is and didn’t touch the bar when I struggled so that makes this even cooler 🦾👽🙃 #squat #conjugate #ironsoulgym #neverenough
