Organized around training for the development of basic strength, power, and overall athleticism, Athletic Iron was created for individuals who want to be in top-tier condition for the demands of both sport and life. This is achieved through intelligent and progressive programming of barbell lifts geared toward peak force development, contrast training for rate of force development; and plyometrics, sprinting, and multi-directional training in order to improve the ability to direct force into the ground.

All of this is integrated, without neglecting hypertrophy and conditioning considerations. So, whether you're an athlete looking to out-hustle and out-muscle your competition or a generalist who wants to train for anything life throws at you...this program is for you!

What is Athletic Iron?

Become the strongest, most powerful version of yourself!

Principles > Methods


Developed by Dr. Miles Nicholas, an experienced physical therapist + strength and conditioning coach who will ensure comprehensive periodized training based upon time testing principles, without gimmicks.

Full Body Training


3x/week training sessions of 60-75 minutes so you have time to integrate training around your weekly sport-training. Each session will offer a comprehensive program that develops all relevant qualities with a full-body stimulus. Guidance provided on adapting the program for 2x/week training, if better suited to your training week.

Athletic Development


If you’ve been lifting consistently for years, but feel like you’ve lost some of your athletic qualities or confidence when you play your sport, this program will remedy that. Each session will include activities that emphasize rate of force development and multi-directional impulse production. Not only will this program make you stronger, it’ll make you more confident in your athleticism.

Conditioning


Anaerobic conditioning will be inherent to Athletic Iron programming, with further guidance on additional anaerobic/aerobic conditioning based upon what the rest of your training week looks like.
