Here we believe in having the best equipment available so we can produce the best strength athletes possible and also provide the greatest training experience we can for trainees, whatever their goals.

From our small beginnings 4 years ago with only five or six pieces of equipment, not enough plates and only a single barbell to the gym's name.
We have grown continuously and now our 300 square meter facility contains a fully equipped free-weight focused strength gym with all the powercages, speciality bars and a competition specific lifting platform that we need to support our expanding membership.

Furthermore what really seperates Iron Underground is the atmosphere.

Very few gyms have the authentic hard grit that IU does.

Mobile phones are disallowed while training, socializing is kept at a minimum and kept for before and after workouts so that the focus can be kept on your strength progression. Which let's face it should be the point we are here. To become stronger. Period

Here we keep it minimal. "Working out" isn't about being entertained or being nicely air conditioned or looking at yourself in mirrors to see if you are doing it right.

No. You will find yourself so damn focused on moving those weights that you couldnt care for entertainment. The exhilaration of becoming stronger and seeing more weight on the bar becomes more important. And those who seek it are training so lamely they may aswell not even bother.

Mirrors are not required because the lifts are treated as skills that are finely tuned and developed through feeling and knowing and actually developing the motor-skills to become proficient at the lifts and exercises. Feeling is knowing.

You will never rely on a mirror for the perfect deadlift or squat here.

Once inside I.U. you will never want to return to what the fitness industry has sadly become with its DJ's and everything BUT hard training.

This is the training culture we have created by work ethic and not marketing.

Become a part of our crew, become a member or train with one of our strength coach's and experience the benefits of our training culture and atmosphere that's essential to getting the most out of yourself.

"I enlisted Paul Thompson to assist me by writing and periodically re...viewing and recalibrating a "ramp up to comp" program for the UQ Summer novice event in November 2014. We had some definitive numbers in mind and Pauls programming skills, coupled with his ability to see weak points and problem areas have allowed me to hit PB's on Squat and Bench and recreate my best Deadlift. Pretty awesome considering we did this through correspondence as I live, work and train in Weipa, North Queensland. I can't thank Paul Thompson and the team at Iron Underground enough for the support from afar, as well as accepting me as a team member when I am able to come to Brisbane to train and compete.
