A Birmingham-based fitness company is growing in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Iron Tribe Fitness has closed on a property Baton Rouge after successfully growing its franchise in another part of town. The new site will accommodate a 4,000-square-foot gym for 45-minute workouts with construction to be completed by summer 2020.
Designed by Ritter Maher Architects, the second gym will incorporate many design elements inspired by member feedback to franchise owner Haydon Jacob Clark.
Forrest Walden, founder and CEO of Iron Tribe Fitness, said he is eager to open the 36th location.
“We’ve been fortunate with top-notch leadership in our Baton Rouge market,” Walden said. “I’m looking forward to seeing more lives changed through fitness, nutrition and accountability in this second location.”
Sarah oversees social media and internal communication for Iron Tribe Fitness. Her goal is to share the mission of Iron Tribe so others can be transformed by the program, and ultimately become the healthiest version of themselves.
