Iron Monkey Strength (IMS) is a school. It is a place of learning, practice, and improvement. We don’t have members, customers, or clients -we have students. The culture of our school is centered around this philosophy of getting better every day, that strength is a skill and it has a greater purpose. This is place for the young and the aging to continue to move and grow. We teach our students how to lift well, safely, and effectively. We use movement screening to ID movements that cause pain or that might need improvement. Every class is a program and designed to get results.
Jason is passionate about helping people to be as awesome as they can. He believes that when people adopt training as a part of their lifestyle there is no limit to what can be accomplished. In 17 years of experience he has adopted great systems for improving mobility, strength, power, and physique. But he’s still not satisfied and continues to study and train -always improving who he is as a coach, a teacher, and athlete. There is no way to completely avoid injury, but we can do everything possible to mitigate it, and that is a central part of what Jason does as a coach and a teacher.
