My fitness journey began at 14 when I saw Pumping Iron for the first time and fell in love with bodybuilding and the fitness lifestyle. Ever since, gyms and weight training have been my passion, my therapy, my life discipline. I always had a dream to open a world class, hardcore gym and create a community of like-minded people who shared my commitment to hard work, clean living and transforming their bodies, minds and spirits through iron. After a successful 25-year career working in real estate and transportation for my family business, I was ready to pursue my dream to open the best high-end, hardcore gym in New Jersey. I had the good fortune to meet two young men who shared my vision and passion. Together we have built the best new hardcore weight training facility in New Jersey—Iron Culture. At Iron Culture, “hardcore” is an attitude, an outlook, a discipline, not a measure of skill level. Even if you are a beginner, if you are serious about your fitness goals and are willing to do whatever it takes to achieve them, then you are hardcore and are ready for Iron Culture, where you will find a home, a community, and the very best new facility and equipment to get it done!
