Clean gym. A lot of cardio and machine options. Staff is friendly. If the free weight area was bigger and had more options, it would get 5 stars from me.

This is the first gym I've ever joined and I have to say I'm impressed. There are so many weight and cardio machines to choose from and the staff is always so welcoming. I don't feel self conscious there at all. I try to go every day, sometimes twice, and I look forward to it each time. The prices aren't bad either. Thank you!

Since joining this gym I could not have been happier with it. Great amount of machines / activities. The staff is always so personable and welcoming. Scott, the owner, is so friendly and kind and is always improving to make his patrons happier. Could not recommend more highly!!

I travel for a living, a couple months at a time, and I can safely say without exaggeration this is the best gym I've ever been to. It's bright, open, the atmosphere is friendly and invigorating, and the staff knows who you are and wants you to be healthy more than anything. The regulars range from casual college kids to bodybuilders to the elderly. Highly recommend.

  Always clean. Always friendly. Most importantly, well-equipped for strength training or cardio. A great hometown gym.

  I joined Iron Bound last year in March after moving here from Chicago. Needless to say, I have not been disappointed. This gym is geared more towards people searching for an active lifestyle (or bodybuilders) rather than those looking for a training environment. With that being said, they do have a little crossfit area that is perfect for those looking for more of a training environment. The back area has a crossfit rig, bumper plates, bands, rings, assault bike, skierg, assault treadmill, and it has a white board filled with WOD's. There is an additional fee for the training area but it is well worth it for those looking to practice their olympic lifts or pr on deadlifts/squats.

They have a smoothie bar with multiple options and they have a little retail store with snacks and clothing for purchase as well. In regards to covid, they have installed these antimicrobial protectors on all their commonly used surfaces (benches in locker room and door handles), which I am a fan of. Most gyms do not have this and I appreciate the extra care they put into protecting the guests during covid.

In addition, the female locker room has a "take one leave one" book exchange in it! I love how this gym is more than a gym- it really is a family.

To sum this up, I am a huge fan of this gym and wish I lived closer, I recently moved to Norfolk. I come back as often as I can for the family feel and equipment.

  This is a small, family-owned gym which is run with great care and integrity.  During Covid, Scott is being especially careful to keep the gym safe (I know this because my friend trains there frequently.) I would highly recommend Iron Bound Gym.  I just got a new knee and can't come until I finish PT, but will rush back as soon as I am able! I miss it!
