Iron Pit Gym Added as Tournament Partner!!!

We are excited to announce that Iron Pit Gym will be partnering up with the Northwest Submission Challenge in 2019! Iron Pit Gym was founded in 2016 to provide athletes in the Treasure Valley with a training facility dedicated to helping individuals reach the absolute best version of themselves. While traditional gyms have worked hard to become less intimidating, they often do so at the expense of real progress for their members. To become your best, you have to work hard. This requires real sweating, grunting, occasional discomfort, and an atmosphere that promotes the appropriate mindset (like hardcore music and no distractions, such as televisions). Whether your goal is to build your strength and athleticism for BJJ or MMA, get back down to your fighting weight,  or simply get in better shape to chase your kids around, you have to be ready to WORK. To train. And at Iron Pit Gym, WE’RE NOT HERE TO WATCH TV!!!
