Birmingham-based Iron Tribe Fitness has temporarily closed its five physical locations due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, but the gym is still committed to making sure its members — and now anyone in Alabama — can improve their overall health and fitness.
Weeks after taking their fitness services totally online during the pandemic, Iron Tribe is now expanding its innovative, accessible approach even further.
The gym, founded in the Magic City 10 years ago, has now launched a 21-Day Virtual Challenge that is available to anyone, anywhere, 100% for free.
In a statement, Forrest Walden, Iron Tribe Fitness founder and CEO, explained that the decision to offer the no-cost program was simple.
Right now, people are seeking motivation to stay healthy, improve their fitness and boost their immune system. This program offers just that and so much more.
“We received such great feedback about our online workouts from our current clients that we knew we needed to offer them to more people,” Walden advised. “Right now, people are seeking motivation to stay healthy, improve their fitness and boost their immune system. This program offers just that and so much more.”
Iron Tribe’s 21-Day Virtual Challenge gives participants access to daily online workouts that require no equipment and can be tailored to any fitness level — plus customized meal plans and a personal accountability coach who can answer all questions and monitor progress along the way. The goal, Walden said, is for challengers to complete the three-week program with more energy, a fitter physique and enhanced motivation to continue on their journey toward better health.
“We host challenges like this all the time and have people lose an impressive amount of weight,” Walden remarked. “These workouts are thoughtfully written and designed to deliver maximum results. Also, the meal plans are super easy to follow. Our team customizes each meal template to make sure challengers get the most out of their daily nutrition.”
He added that Iron Tribe coaches provide a wealth of resources for challengers. Just because gyms doors are closed, Walden noted, does not mean coaches are not still connecting and engaging with members.
“Our coaches will be checking daily meals and making sure challengers complete their workouts,” he concluded. “Once participants sign up, they’ll be a part of our community — reaping all the benefits that come with it!”
