Iron Pagoda Athletic Club is proud to offer group classes that are rare and extraordinary.

Turbulence Training, a type of high intensity interval training boot camp class, as a first in Madison.

“Not only do we offer these effective and rare classes, but our story is also special. Our instructors at Iron Pagoda are experts and masters at their disciplines, having spent half their lives training and teaching these arts. We are also community grown; all our instructors are from the neighborhood. It is our goal to offer and inspire our community to cultivate a lifestyle of wellness through our classes that transforms the body and the will,” says Sarah Welther, co-owner of Iron Pagoda Athletic Club.

Advocating and enabling fit and healthy lifestyles, Iron Pagoda offers classes for everybody in the family. “We offer family discounts as well as ‘community’ rewards, where if you invite a friend, both will receive a discount on membership. It is our way of promoting fitness as a way of life and as something to be shared and inspiring to others. Our classes are strategically smaller to offer a more personal and in turn, a more effective approach to achieving a healthy lifestyle,” she adds.
