A community who triumphantly
conqueres life’s challenges
and adversities, large or small, to succeed in
creating the best version of ourselves
What is Forged Passion?
True passion is solar-powered and because it is frictionless it is infinite. Willpower and all the other disciplines of the mind are, by definition, finite. Passion reenergizes itself.
One of the most overlooked aspects of true passion is that real passion, begets real results. Results revitalize motivation and motivation enables us to redouble our effort. Tangible progress revitalizes passion and passion is the fuel that strengthens commitment. Results are the fuel that keeps passion smoldering.
Forged Passion is passion matured.
Forged Passion Philosophy
At our core, IRON COMPANY is the result of facing our own adversity and fears in life, discovering fitness and turning it into the solution for the challenges we faced. Our passion for fitness, Forged Passion as we like to call it, opened up opportunities in life we could have never imagined and brought us success we only dreamed of.
No matter your goals or situation, we strongly believe that there is Forged Passion in everybody waiting to be discovered and utilized for the betterment of ourselves and society. What’s your passion?
Look in the mirror…that’s your competition.
Forged Passion Mission
Creating a platform that brings people together from all walks of life to inspire and energize one another through examples of determination and grit that ultimately lead to success. That is our mission.
Whether you’re a professional athlete, first responder, office worker, teacher, stay at home parent, or one of a million other things, chances are someone or something in your life helped determine the path you would ultimately take. Hopefully, the force that molded you was positive and with love. For many, we are greatly impacted through adversity such as bullying, being born with a disease or being faced with an addiction. It is these things we all experience, good or bad, that establish opportunity in our lives to create a positive outcome for ourselves and others if we only take the time to take recognize and embrace those opportunities we have before us.
STRENGTH is the product of struggle, you must do what others don’t to achieve what others won’t.Henry Rollins

I will always see myself differently when I look in the mirror, and not because I look different but because I am different -- I'm a fighter, a survivor, I'm stronger, even wiser. So for me, fighting cancer actually gave me more than it took -- it forced me to relinquish control so that God could move, so He could bless me with a new and improved perspective, and so He could heal me in places I never could have reached on my own.
