When I think about it…the Iron Eagles Strength Training program is more than just a fitness program for young people with special needs. It’s a place each Tuesday night where we find ourselves immersed in a group of people that are there for one reason… to see one another succeed. The camaraderie that has developed over the past 20 years is truly the strength of this program. We push each other to work harder, laugh louder and risk trying things we never thought we could do. Our dedicated volunteer coaches believe that, regardless of ability, anything is possible if you try. Their passion and enthusiasm is contagious and brings to life our battle cry at the close of each session: “Eagles Soar!” Coach Dave
The Iron Eagles Program is more than just a fitness group, it is a community. A community where everyone is uplifting and encouraging to others. It is a chance for everyone to recharge their batteries, work hard, and leave feeling good about themselves. There is a positive energy surrounding the Iron Eagles team and it is contagious. Everyone wants to be there every week to cheer each other on to work hard and improve themselves. To push the limits and continuing to smash their personal bests. There is no complaining or excuses, only the pursuit of improving yourself and encouraging others along with you. Iron Eagles is hard work, respect, and friendship! Coach Jesse
I used to watch the Iron Eagles workout while on the treadmill. The enthusiasm was contagious, and I wanted badly to join. Still working shifts, I was unable to commit 100 %. Iron Eagles give 100 %. Upon retirement, my first order of business was to see if I could join the Tuesday night workout. Dave said I now qualified and would be welcome to join in. Happy days! I joined the “Eagles” and have made many friends. Hope to see you all soon at “muscle beach” or under the bar on the bench. Jamie out. Coach Jamie
