  • Why Boston Iron Grit Training Is Ranked One of the Best Gyms In West Roxbury
  • Finding the Best Gyms Near Me In West Roxbury



Boston Iron & Grit Training will help you succeed in reaching your health and fitness goals. We take the time to get to know YOU. We have EVOLVED beyond our beginnings as a CrossFit gym. You will notice the difference in our coaching, programming and community. We offer an array of classes to choose from. Our program is built on 5 pillars:

Absolute Strength–We help you develop a base of strength in all our programs. If you are a beginner we start with the most basic Powerlifting and gymnastics movements: push, pull and squat. Once you gain confidence we start to layer in the technical aspects of Olympic lifting. Done with our safe approach you will develop the strength you need to enjoy your everyday life activities.

Aerobic Capacity–Cardio vascular endurance is a staple you need to keep healthy and lose weight. Our approach is to help you increase your work capacity in fun, high intensity metabolic conditioning workouts. You can choose from one of our many programs–EVOLVE, IRON Row or our famous BIG Engine class.

Mobility and Flexibility–Can’t call it a well rounded program without having mobility as one of the pillars. We add mobility training to all of our classes and teach you how to keep your joints safe and your muscles supple.

Functional Body Development–We felt this was the missing link to most training programs. Balance, stability and core development is the focus of our FUNCTION class. You will also see functional body development in our EVOLVE class 3 times a week during Integration–our post wod accessory work to keep you moving forward on your fitness journey.

Wellness–We believe health embodies a well rounded life–Nutrition, Sleep, Hydration and Meditation. A healthy body needs a diet full of wholesome food to nourish and sustain. We do not subscribe to any fad diets. Our goal is to teach you how to eat to support your life well into your 90s. Nutrition is the base of everything you do. Sleep is where we fully recover from the stresses of the day–we use WHOOP technology to help you dial in your sleep. We start and end our day with water. And finally we find 10 minutes a day to meditate. We can help you find a balance in all aspects of your life.

Our staff is one of the best in the area and we deliver you a fun workout everyday. You can choose to mix in different classes every week to round out your program and make it your own. Since 2011 we have been an inclusive community and we welcome you to join us.

I started Iron & Grit because I believed we could change the lives of people in Boston through fitness. As a coaching staff we look forward to the challenge of bringing the best in coaching, training and programming to Boston.

Our number one priority is to keep you safe as we transition back into the gym.

We have developed a Control Plan in compliance with state and local government requirements. We have a plan of action that includes:

  • thoroughly clean our gym after each session
  • disinfect every night with CDC approved products
  • new floor plan to help you get in safely and train in your own WOD Station
Programming and Schedule:

Our programming has been designed to bring you back safely after 16 weeks of Stay Home orders. It is done with purpose and intent.

We have also adjusted our schedule to a 2 hour cycle to get you in safely and without rush. You have 1.5 hours to train. We then take the time to thoroughly clean the gym for the next session.

We have moved our training model to a more semi-private model to accommodate the social distance requirements.

Once you walk in you will see the Iron & Grit difference.
