Wow! What an amazing gym! While on vacation I decided to get a workout in at Iron North. Despite regularly working out 4-5/wk their Sat morning class kicked my butt, it was so much fun. The instructor was fantastic, she gave superb instructions, played the best music, and was so motivating. Throughout the class she floated around offering encouragement or corrections to ensure everyone was safe. The class was a mix of fitness levels, everyone had such positive attitudes and were so inviting. After class I met some other staff members and they were so welcoming. This gym had such a great atmosphere, wish this gym was back home. More...

I love everything about this gym - the people, the energy, the workouts and the coffee machine in the front foyer (free coffee. yes. free). Co-owners Jenna and Sam put so much love and energy into making every single type of body feel welcome, challenged and rejuvenated. I'm literally the strongest I've ever been because the trainers here push me to believe in my abilities.being able to do everything I want - spinning, lifting, running, yoga and massage - in the one space is key, so it's much better value than anywhere else in the area in my opinion. Most of all, the small class sizes (8-10) give you the experience of personal training without the price tag. I'm not from Ottawa or even from Canada, but safe to say Iron North Studio has become my second home, and my second family. Love this place, and these people, and this feeling! More...

Having moved into the area recently, I wandered into Iron North purely out of curiosity one day and wound up buying a membership after a chat with Jenna and Matthew. Six weeks later, I am loving every class I go to, and am very grateful for all the feedback and assistance provided to me by all of the instructors I have had the pleasure of working with so far. The studio is incredibly welcoming and the classes are adaptable for any level- even for complete beginners like myself! I would definitely recommend this gym for anyone at any level of fitness who is interested in becoming part of a community while also becoming a better version of themselves. More...

After going past Iron North for months, wondering what those sweaty people on display in the huge windows were doing, I joined the studio this past June and have absolutely zero regrets. Led by Jenna (and formerly Sam), Iron North isn't your typical anonymous box gym—it's like a little family. The classes are intimate enough (usually max. 10, sometimes up to 14 for spin) that every attendee gets to work with the instructor, which is a huge bonus as those they employ are top notch athletes. Being able to do strength, yoga and spin all in one studio is great for when you want to mix up your workouts. For people like me who came in with no fitness experience whatsoever, you're cared for and slowly pushed to do better. Take this from someone who used to hate working out/gyms with a passion—Iron North is the best place to sweat in town and absolutely deserves five stars. More...

If there's one thing I know about these two ladies it's that they're motivated to succeed. They are amazing coaches who inspire, encourage, and demand the most from all their athletes. Good luck ladies, you're going to rock it!!! More...

I told Jenna and Sam my goal was to run a sub two hour half marathon. 10 weeks later I hit that goal: 1:58:39. (7 minutes faster than my previous PB) I loved my program - it was hard, but with the gentle encouragement of these two fantastic coaches, I got all the runs in and was able to reach my goal. I look forward to working with INF for my fall marathon and setting new goals! More...

Fantastic studio! I’ve been personal training with Sam since April. She is very knowledgeable and skilled at her job. She pushes me to work hard and I am getting stronger all the time. I’ve done spinning with Nikki and yoga with Vanessa…all great classes! I can’t recommend this studio highly enough! More...

Jenna coached me with the Yogatown Run Club and was an amazing motivator. She was a great source of information for all things running related and gave me advice I will never forget. She is kind and positive. In fact even after run club she saw me at my first half marathon in Toronto and ran part of it with me to help me finish strong! She is truly a great gift to Ottawa's fitness industry. In her role as PT and running coach I can't imagine her giving less than 110%. More...

Every time I visit Ottawa Jenna, Sam and Adrian always welcome me with a great workout. It's always an awesome experience at Iron North Studio. I wish I could workout here more often. I've had great personal coaching online that helped me complete several triathlons this past summer. I couldn't have done it without the amazing staff at INS! More...

This is the best place that I have ever had the pleasure (yes, pleasure!!) to work out at. I look forward to the classes and my personal training sessions with Jenna, because, when I'm there, I know it is not just my body getting stronger, but my mind and soul as well. I leave feeling cared for and happy, and every time I walk in, I know that the people at INS are genuinely happy to have me there. I so highly recommend this place to EVERYONE - if I could rate 10 stars out of 5, I would!! More...

Love coming in to do yoga or spin here! Never felt motivated or welcomed enough in other places. This gym is all inclusive & so willing to encourage & support it's members to reach their goals! I've grown so much in so many ways since coming in that first time. I have so far to go but I cannot say thank you enough for changing my life for the better! Can't wait to try the 30 day challenge & keep moving forward in 2017! More...

If I could give this studio 10 stars I would!! This is not your regular gym experience. I didn't even think it was possible to love a gym this much! I especially love that everything is available in one studio (strength, spin, yoga, running). Everything you need is right here.
The design and aesthetics are so unique and beautiful, which brings the gym experience to the next level!
In just 6 months I've fallen for a new lifestyle and have seen a transformation both physically and mentally! Come and check it out, you won't be disappointed.

Iron North is more than just a gym, it's a community. Jenna and Sam have created a beautiful, supportive space for people to thrive that's unlike anywhere else in the city. This is the place to be to reach your goals- they keep you motivated, accountable, and even caffeinated when you need to be. There's no reason not to join us! More...

I started going to Iron North this summer and for the first time in my life I am actually, consistently going to the gym. I'm even going to spin classes! The instructors and the other gym-goers are friendly and supportive even though I'm frequently the weakest person in the room. And the classes are great! Small, interesting, challenging and fun. No two classes are exactly the same so I never get bored.

I really can't recommend Iron North highly enough. If you live in Ottawa, and particularly if you live in Hintonburg, do yourself a favour and check them out.

I do not at all consider myself a gym person, and have struggled my whole life to get comfortable with fitness and the gym. But Iron North blows my mind. I've now been a member for a full year and couldn't imagine being without this incredible community of gifted trainers and fellow gym-goers. Just straight-up amazing people! We get together for brunch after class, we go for drinks, we run into each other in the neighbourhood, we swap cat stories.

I love that they offer everything under one roof (yoga, spin, weights, cardio) so that I don't have to juggle a million different passes. And the small class sizes mean lots of attention and hands-on adjustments from their amazing instructors. I feel right at home at Iron North and I bet you will too.

Hands down the best gym in the city. I love combining different classes in the same day. The quality of instruction is superb, and you really feel like part of a fun family. They are always on top of their game and finding new ways to make the studio awesome! More...

A wonderful local gym with knowledgeable staff who are also a really great group of people. The class sizes are small and the workouts are varied. I switched jobs midway this year and it was quite far away from the gym so unfortunately I did not renew my annual membership and signed up for a gym closer to my job, BUT since then I have purchased individual class passes for Iron North, so I can still go when I can from time to time because that is how much I've enjoyed my experience there. More recently I have been seeing one of the owners, Jenna for personal training sessions every couple of weeks to help me along with my pre-natal fitness and it's been a great experience so far!

The most supportive owners and trainers who continuously push you to be a better athlete. I would recommend this place to anyone wants to be apart of an amazing gym community. I would give this place 50 stars if I could. The workouts are great, scaled and attainable for people at any level. They offer great workshops to always try to achieve more. I am the strongest I have been in my entire life thanks to this place. More...
