    No matter what your goals are, 1-on-1 personal training is tailor-made to help you get the most of your fitness program. 1-on-1 personal training is perfect for individuals who want dedicated and focused workouts to ensure they achieve their goals and transform their lives. Whether you’re looking to build muscle, burn body fat, increase endurance, or just improve your quality of life, opting for personal training will put you on the right track.

    Personal Training

    1-on-1 training is great for people with demanding schedules who cannot attend regularly scheduled classes or for people who need some extra accountability. Personal training allows you to have the most focused and personalized instruction, coaching and feedback. It’s all about you! We will work together to focus on your personal goals and give you the tools you need to see great results.

    Semi-Private Training

    Do you like to work out with a friend? Then semi-private training might be best for you. With 2-4 people, you still get plenty of personalized attention while getting a workout that can be adapted for each member of the group.

Shari Wagner

Owner & Head Coach

Shari Wagner founded Iron Clad Fitness in 2009 with the mission to redefine fitness by helping people of all shapes, sizes and backgrounds. Through kettlebells Shari gained control over PCOS, eliminated chronic neck, back and knee pain, and reversed Osteopenia in her spine. At Iron Clad Fitness, Shari inspires and supports members to reclaim their health, banish physical pain and build strength beyond what they think is possible.

"I didn’t grow up playing sports and I was never good at them. The word athlete didn’t exist in my life. I didn’t play on the monkey bars, or throw balls around in the yard. I was a skinny, weak and clumsy kid. I would dabble in exercise here and there and I always found myself more drawn to strength training, yet I had no actual strength. I was very sporadic with my training out of boredom and stagnation.

In my mid twenties and I found myself struggling to keep off a pesky 10 or 15 pounds. By the time I was 32, that pesky 10-15 pounds suddenly became more than 40 pounds. Just a few months after this photo was taken, I was busting out of my biggest clothes when I finally took a look in the mirror and wondered how the heck I got here. I decided it was time to make a change.

Fat photo001

Shortly after, I was diagnosed with Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). I changed my eating habits to help manage my PCOS symptoms and by the time we rang in 2001, I was thin again. However, I continued my habits of sporadic training and I was plagued with chronic neck and back pain from multiple disc herniations as well as chronic knee pain. I was also diagnosed with Osteopenia (low bone density).

Fast forward to 2007 – Enter The Kettlebell.

Everything changed when I discovered kettlebells. I was having fun practicing my kettlebell technique while getting a great workout, and I wasn’t getting bored or stagnating. I was lifting weights I never thought possible and building strength I didn’t know I had. Kettlebells were reshaping my body and my life. I saw a strong and muscular new physique emerge before my very eyes. My chronic neck, back and knee pain seemed to magically fall by the wayside and many of my PCOS symptoms became more manageable. My bone density numbers started rising instead of falling, which meant I was building bone instead of losing bone. Within a few years, the osteopenia in my spine was reversed.

I became a better cyclist, finally completing the Bike MS 150 mile 2-day bike tour, with NO knee or back pain and very little on-the-bike training! I tried snowboarding for the first time. I bent a bolt. I did my first pull up. I went rock climbing. I completed a sprint triathlon, again with very little tri-specific training. I found that I was becoming more adventurous and willing to try new physical activities because I finally had confidence in my physical abilities and control over my body. I finally realized that I am an athlete.

My life was improving so greatly, I decided that I had to share these amazing tools with others. It takes time, passion and dedication to become a Russian Kettlebell Challenge instructor (RKC). I decided to become an RKC instructor so that I could help others reach their strength and fitness goals, find their inner athlete and become Iron Clad."

WOW I can move again!

Starting kettlebell was the best thing I ever did! I am 45 yrs old, overweight and I have MS. The medication and lack of exercise has caused me to gain weight. MS has made it very difficult to perform daily tasks. Shari slowly started incorporating some changes in my eating and encouraged me to start slowly with kettlebell classes.

At first it was exhausting and I thought I would never make it. After a few more changes in my eating, I started gaining more energy and kettlebell classes started getting easier. I was performing daily chores again and staying up later. Shari had me fill out a food journal and commented on how I could improve. Not only have I lost weight and body fat, I have gained muscle.

WOW I can move again! Working with kettlebells has a great impact at a low impact effort. I am feeling and moving better and my husband is noticing me again. Shari is an exceptional trainer; she goes over and beyond what most trainers will.”

Teresa is strong and fit and she embodies the spirit of Iron Clad with her dedication to her training.

Teresa is quite the success story, and she is proof that proper technique is key in kettlebell training. Teresa hurt her back several years ago doing kettlebell swings on her own at home. Her back pain persisted for years.

At the end of 2014, Theresa reached the end of her rope and called me to start private training. We took things slowly, to help build a nice base of strength and confidence in the basic movements before visiting the swing. Teresa gave lots of care and attention to her technique, understanding that it was going to make the difference in whether she felt pain or not.

In just a couple of weeks of training, Teresa told me that her back was already feeling so much better. A couple of months later, Teresa’s back pain, the pain that had plagued her daily for years, was gone! When Teresa was ready to start attacking the swing, she approached it with a whole new mindset – one of control and mindfulness in her movements. She didn’t rush the process and was open to any and all corrections I gave her. Soon enough, Teresa was swinging with the best of them and she decided to switch to group classes.

It has been so much fun to watch Teresa transform before my eyes. In less than a year, she went from being in chronic pain and afraid of swings to being excited to learn snatches. Teresa is strong and fit and she embodies the spirit of Iron Clad with her dedication to her training.

She wasn’t sure that she’d be as accountable and motivated in group classes, but she really embraced it and she very rarely misses a scheduled class because she has come to love it so much!

Lost over 4 inches in the first month

"Since starting my workouts at Iron Clad Fitness, I’ve lost 4 and 1/2 inches and continue to get stronger with every workout!

I haven’t done a lot of heavy weight training so the first day I stepped foot into Iron Clad I was nervous at the size of some of the kettlebells. Thanks to the classes and learning proper technique, I’m now able to swing a 48kg kettlebell, or as it’s affectionately known “the beast”, and can deadlift two 48kg kettlebells. I’ve started learning more advanced techniques within the swing and can now do hand to hand swings where you transfer the weight from one arm to another at the height of the swing. These are all things I couldn’t imagine myself being able to do in such a short time.

Shari has also been helping me with her habit based nutrition coaching. Anytime I tried to “diet” in the past I would last a couple of weeks restricting myself but then, eventually would fall off and revert back to whatever I was doing before. They say it can take 30 days to make things a habit, Shari is helping me make slight changes to my diet, one at a time, so that they stick and won’t just be tossed aside."

One year ago, my friend Robin motivated me to join her in our friend Shari Wagner’s Transformation Contest at Iron Clad Fitness. I wasn’t in it to win it and didn’t. It was about supporting two wonderful friends and maybe being motivated to establish an exercise routine to continue after the contest was up. A year later, I reached that goal and more.

The combination of exercising and controlling blood sugars brings on more challenges to a type 1 diabetic than I will go into detail about here. But a year later in addition to losing weight, I lost inches off several areas, I feel less depressed, and I decreased the amount of insulin I have to take on a daily basis. I don’t lose my breath going up and down my stairs to bed, or walking my dogs. When I show people my driver’s license, they don’t really think it is a picture of me. In ways, I look and feel as I did when I was in college before I was diagnosed.

My relationship with my workout buddy and trainer has grown. And I work out with a lot of new friends at Iron Clad Fitness. Here’s to another great year. Thanks Shari and Robyn.

When Margaret came to Iron Clad, she had been trying to lose weight for a long time with no results. Now she is 31 lbs lighter, has lost more than 4 inches off her waist and 3 inches off her hips. All with attending just 3 classes per week!

As a working professional, I find myself seriously pressed for time and often put working out at the end of my list of things to do. So it was a godsend to find Iron Clad Fitness and their efficient kettlebell workouts that combine cardio and strength. I saw strength increases right away which helped me stay motivated while I was losing weight. My core is the strongest its ever been! It’s amazing how helpful in everyday life that can be.

I’ve worked out with a number of trainers and different gyms and I think it can be tough to find the combination of great trainers and a supportive class environment as you learn. This is one of the best I’ve worked out at.
