PINK IRON FITNESS REVIEW: 6 WAYS THIS PINK GYM WILL EMPOWER YOU
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Pink Iron Fitness is no longer in business... however the owner has opened a new ALL WOMEN'S FITNESS GYM/COMMUNITY CLOSE BY! Please refer to https://www.burnbabe.com/ for more details!
1. NOT JUST YOUR AVERAGE GYM ... A ONE OF A KIND ALL WOMENS FITNESS FAM
At Pink Iron Fitness in West Hollywood you will find way more than what your average gym has to offer. When you walk into Pink Iron you are guaranteed to get your sweat on! The coaches will go over your routine on a cute pink board, demonstrate all the movements, and coach you through the workout. Sounds way better than walking into LA Fitness and having no clue what to do! Aside from sweating with such inspiring women at the gym, Pink Iron brings the fitness community together outside of the gym with holiday parties, birthday celebrations, empowering workshops, and so many more fun events! At Pink Iron we are a community, a family!
2. KNOWING WHO YOU ARE SWEATING WITH
Before each class at Pink Iron the group gathers in a circle in front of the board! Here every member introduces themselves, tells everyone how long they have been coming to Pink Iron, AND answers a fun question of the day. This is literally SO AWESOME. It gives everyone a chance to get to know each other and know who they are going to be sweating with for the day! How Fun! Each day at Pink Iron you are also introduced to a Fun DMC (Daily Motivational Concept). These are always little inspiring phrases that really get you in the right mind set for your workout. This board is also where you will find the workout for the day in fun colors!
3. ON ALL DAYS WE WORKOUT IN PINK
Not pink clothes silly, well actually I tend to dress to coordinate with the gym because its fun, motivating, and hello insta opps!!! But seriously the owner Holly Holton has gone to tremendous measures to make this gym so unique and so PINK. Pink Treadmills, Pink Barbells, Pink Medicine Balls, Pink TRX, PINK PINK PINK everywhere! I can't get enough and you won't be able to either once you come sweat with us! It really feels so empowering to be able to be at a girly gym while becoming so strong both physically and mentally!
4. GIRLS WHO LIFT ARE STRONG AND FIT
I remember when I use to walk into the gym, head straight to the treadmill, run my 3 miles a day, and then peace out! To be honest the weight room was intimidating and filled with huge guys not considerate of other peoples space AND hello I didn't want to get big and bulky and gain weight. GROSS. When I walked into Pink Iron I realized all the girls looked so good and so fit and I had been working out everyday for almost a year now and didn't look that way. I quickly realized that the majority of these girl's workouts involved weight-lifting... WHOA... this entire time I was afraid to lift weights when weights are what I needed to get strong, lose fat, gain muscle, and get FIT. FIT is SEXY AF! And STRONG is BEAUTIFUL. These phrases have played on repeat in my head for 2 and a half years now since I joined Pink Iron.
5. MAKING FRIENDSHIPS THROUGH FITNESS
When I moved to LA almost 3 years ago now I knew like 3 people tops! I'm like well I have my high school friends back home in Indiana, my college friends from Indiana University are now all over the place, and here I am starting out fresh and new yet again. The struggle to make friends is REAL.... especially in LA because it's so spread out. The one thing Pink Iron does is BRING EVERYONE TOGETHER! I have met so many amazing, inspiring women of all ages that to be quite honest where the heck would I have met them otherwise? I wouldn't have! Pink Iron welcomes all women of all ages and don't worry modifications are ALWAYS available for every workout. So don't feel intimidated to come try it!
6. MOTIVATION IN AND OUT OF THE GYM
Not only will the coaches and members inspire and push you during class but they will continue to do so outside of the Pinkness as well! Pink Iron has a Facebook page for it's members where we post inspirational things, let each other know about fun events and competitions, ask each other really anything, and I even post my blog posts there to share with the community of girls. It's a great way to stay connected with each other! AND did I mention Instagram? Pink Iron posts daily and it keeps me so motivated and less likely to skip on my workout that day! The support system is incredible at Pink Iron and it's such an amazing feeling to know someone there always has your back!
LETS SWEAT TOGETHER FIT FRIENDS...
SORRY NO BOYS ALLOWED!
