Amazing facility with more than you will ever need to be successful in your desired fitness goals. Ben is absolutely amazing and super great to have a place like this for everyone. Very excited to excel in my lifting here.

Ironclad Performance has an exceptional gym environment. I am privileged to train with VERY strong men and women who support each other with acceptance and a sense of humor! I cannot recommend Ben’s coaching and Ironclad Performance highly enough! It had been five years since I competed in the Amateur World Powerlifting Championships. I came to Ironclad to not only regain and increase my strength but to ask an expert to analyze and improve my form in the squat, bench press, and deadlift. Again, I cannot recommend Ben Tipton highly enough. After only three months, his comprehensive program of training has not only allowed me to regain my form and my strength in two of the three lifts (my squat still needs work!) but has brought me to a new overall level of fitness that has carried over into the other areas of my life. Ben trains each individual as a complete person, as well as an athlete!

This is the real deal! Ben knows his stuff, constantly goes out of his way to help. Everyone is welcome here. If you're looking to improve, this is the place to come to. I couldn't give this place enough stars or speak highly enough of it, give it a try!

Ben is one of the most efficient, hard working, tenacious people I’ve ever gotten the pleasure of growing a friendship with. He’s so informative about strength training, recovery & so much more. This is the gym you need to go to in order to really hit your goals to becoming a better version of you!

Nice, clean, powerlifting-friendly gym. Ben (owner) wanted to create a mini collegiate strength-training facility and has done just that (including air conditioning). Thanks for all your help with USA Powerlifting Open Nationals, Ben!
