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?

You know, I wasn’t going to post this. I’ve recently had a couple of good conversations with some people I consider pretty close friends, about how I don’t post much of myself anymore and why. So, I feel I little foolish now going back on that, because It’s more about you guys than it is about me now, and frankly, I like it that way. My enthusiasm for “social” media has really diminished over the last couple of years, for many reasons, starting with the big ole reality check that was covid. My priorities were out of whack. In a way, I’m glad it was all taken away from me because there’s no other way I would have learned what truly matters (hint-it aint instagram). I took a lot of needed time off to reflect. To heal. To be better as a person, a husband, a father, and a business owner.

On the other hand, I do know that a good grip of you wanna see the old man lift from time to time, and that I’m in a position to help people, so here it is. An unimpressive 485, but I’ve still got it. I’ve also got some new goals. I guess you could say I’m back, for whatever that’s worth. Ive had to turn to light wraps as the 49 year old knees just didn’t love heavy squats in sleeves anymore and I’m alright with it. I left the whole set up in here, because I see people struggling with this. If you made it this far, here are some tips:

Exhale as you’re stepping in and wedge in tight. Now inhale, stand, and the bar pops up like butter. Congrats, you’ve made it light and you’re winning already. Now.. step, step, get your s**t together in your head and let it settle. Brace like I’m going to punch you in the stomach, stack the neck, and go. That’s really it. Live, learn, pass on, and all that.

600.8lb deadlift at 165bw and a class win for our man @eddie_saizy at the @iplpowerlifting tested worlds in Costa Mesa, California. He worked his ass off for this. Lots of early morning training and life stress balance. Kick ass s**t. Super proud to have been here. #ironsoul #ironsoulpowerlifting #albuquerquepowerlifting #deadlift #uspapower

Best lifter gym bags! Two best lifters will each get one of these cleeeean bad boys from @grizzlygraphicsnm stuffed with goodies from our friends @liftinglargedotcom, a huge 5lb bag of genuine albanese gummi worms from our friend Ferguson (thank you Ferg!) and a $100 visa gift card. Lift heavy, have fun!

10/29/2021

We have beanies. They are $20 until they’re gone! @grizzlygraphicsnm killed it on these.

Weigh-ins today and….Surprise! Our VERY generous friends and sponsor @grizzlygraphicsnm printed and donated these shirts for each lifter who registered for NOTDL. If you’re registered, you’ll receive a shirt at weigh-ins today. We had to guess on sizing, so if we run out of a particular size today, we’ll get it ordered for those lifters. I know we’ll be asked, so I will say we likely will NOT have any extras to sell at the event. Registration for the event was higher than ever. So, once staff and lifters are taken care of, there’s really nothing left of this run. Lifters first.

We will probably order more, assuming there is demand, though it will probably be a pay-in-advance sale with a couple week turn around. Art and design by the Uber talented @doomkitten !!

*Please get all your printing and graphic work done at grizzly graphics. They’re really helped us tremendously over the years and especially throughout the covid bs.

Nice 303lb / 137.5kg pull for @mrs.bazooka at the @uspanewmexico tested state champs this weekend. She jumped into the 300 club and displayed some legit grind here. Love this lift. #ironsoul #ironsoulgym #uspapower #uspapowerlifting

I couldn’t be happier for my friend @myo_goliath and his team @officialgoliathsn. They have always shown up and shown out (and I’ve felt kicked our asses a couple of times). Absolutely could not be happier for them. Class acts that show up and kill it at any meet, any time. Congratulations!! The untested state champs are now from Texas!!

Whelp! The only names submitted for this year’s iron soul team were were 9 women. We had 11 lifters total present today for the tested lifting, but with only two guys on board, we decided to enter our first all female team, and low and behold, another incredible team trophy for the case! @meltonmorehead and @armijomayra really drove this home with absolutely amazing efforts from @littleone616 @mrs.bazooka @natkorenev @rudedanch @crimsonkittee @stardustfaire @pistols_and_prs @wreckastow and Querida Cordova (don’t know insta). For the guys, @natesgreatjourney delivered a solid first meet performance and of course @kristopher_chance delivered the goods, as always. I’m proud. I mean, really proud. This place is something special, and I am reminded of that over and over again, by all of you. I’ve never seen anything like it. Shout out to mama April for making an appearance and lending her smiles to the day! Also a HUGE shout out to @8_gradys_performance and @coach_stev_strength for the use of this gorgeous facility and to all the @uspapower folks and volunteers who make these events happen. Killed it, ladies and gentlemen. Thank you! #ironsoul #ironsoulgym #ironsoulpowerlifting #uspapowerlifting #uspanewmexico #statechamps

Ok folks, this baby is closing in on us quickly. We’re looking at just under three weeks until NOTLDL hits.

FIRST- we need people to make this thing work. We’re looking for 5-6 spotter/loaders, 4-5 experienced folks to judge (don’t need to be certified necessarily as this is an unsanctioned event), and always always, we need some setup help to move things around in the gym the day of. Please DM if you’d like to help out!

Next, GET REGISTERED. Registration closes the 28th and there will be no late additions or exceptions. Weigh-in information is in the registration link. We’re looking at about 50-60 lifters this year so it should be a good one, again.

Shirts, yeah there will be shirts.

Posted @withregram • @armijomayra #hatfieldsquats from yesterday. 8x3 with a top set of 255 lbs.

First time doing this squat variation. Great variation to encourage an upright position throughout the set.
