Iron Tribe Fitness – a national franchise that Men’s Journal has called one of the top five workouts in the nation – recently opened its newest gym, in Charleston, South Carolina. Located at 601 Meeting Street in the city’s burgeoning Upper Peninsula district, the 3,500-square-foot gym provides expert individualized coaching to group classes, as well as fully customized semi-private personal training options.

Having first entered the Charleston market 10 years ago in Mount Pleasant, this marks the brand’s second area gym. According to founder and CEO Forrest Walden, the new gym is part of a broader expansion initiative that expects to see Iron Tribe Fitness open 2-3 more locations in the area over the next several years.

“Charleston is such a vibrant community, we love the people, and we see a growing population more self-aware of the importance associated with living a healthy lifestyle,” said Walden. “At Iron Tribe Fitness, we’re committed to helping busy men and women get the most out of every workout and have a great time in the process. We couldn’t be more excited about our continued growth in the area and we look forward to helping even more people in the community reach their f.”

Ranked one of the top five best workouts in the nation, Iron Tribe Fitness offers two exciting and effective workout options to help clients of all experience levels reach their goals with a completely personal approach. The first is a 45-minute functional training group class that is limited to 16 participants, taught by at least one highly-trained coach, and changes each day. The second is hands-on, semi-private training (5-person sessions) that customizes every aspect of one’s fitness and nutrition journey.

Both offerings are aimed at taking ones strength, conditioning and skill to the next level.

“When you take a class at Iron Tribe, you don’t get the option to slack off. Similar to athletic training, you get accountability from trainers and strangers who can become friends,” said Walden. “Classes are for anyone at any level, and the real competition is with yourself.”

The local expansion announcement comes at a time when Iron Tribe Fitness is looking to expand its footprint with new franchisees primarily across the Southeastern United States. With nearly 30 gyms currently in eight states, more than two-thirds of which are owned and operated by franchisees, Iron Tribe Fitness intends to open at least five new locations nationwide in 2023 and as many as 5-10 each year thereafter.
