Iron Pit Fitness Center in Bloomington, Indiana provides a clean, friendly, and non-intimidating atmosphere where excercise can be enjoyed 24 hours a day.
I have been on the phone with the Monroe County Health Dept. We are fully within compliance with all state and local recommendations concerning Covid-19. Taking care of our members has been a priority the last 25 years. Since July 2020, there has been over 20,000 members through our doors with no cases of covid-19 contracted, transmitted, or traced at the Iron Pit Gym. We will continue to be diligent in our efforts for your health an safety while at our facility. If you have concerns feel free to contact us. (812)339-1679.
God Bless and Happy Holidays,
Douglas J Ballard
The latest addition!! We have 4 of these beauties in the DB area!!
Two weeks ago, we made the unique decision to not accept New memberships. In our 25 year history, we have never had to make such a decision. After close evaluation, we are now in a position to start accepting New memberships. Our first priority has always been what is best for our members. Thank you for your patience during this time. Again, we are now accepting New memberships.
Thank you, Douglas J Ballard
Unprecedented Times dictate we postpone acceptance of NEW Members. Effective 8-25-20 at 8pm. We will evaluate the situation 9-7-20. In an effort to maintain a safe environment for all our members, we decided this is the best course of action. Please check this page for future updates.
Thank You, Douglas J Ballard

It looks like Governor Holcomb has extended the(Covid-19 stay home mandate)for 2 more weeks. If this holds true, we will be back at the Ironpit April 20th. We miss you all! ￼Stay Healthy and Safe.
FYI- the video was taken March 23rd, the day Governor Holcomb announced that all non essential businesses must close. •

A friendship that began well over 2 decades ago, Greg Simmons and Doug Ballard have spanned the globe competing together. Their countless hours spent in the weight room wasn’t all about training. The back part of the gym could be thought of as Gregs office, where the jokes and pranks flowed freely and the laughter welled up from deep in your belly. These guys even lived in the same neighborhood for a time. As neighbors, Doug and Greg could sometimes be found lighting up the neighborhood with fireworks. Not to mention the flaming deadlift event - that became quite popular on Big Doug’s Birthday. The bond these two men share was strong and lives on forever. #IPG4L #simmonsstrong
Only God truly knows how many lives Greg touched through coaching, mentoring, or just being kind and friendly. He was an amazing father, husband, coach, and friend. His fun and silly personality was contagious and made him an important part of the Iron Pit family. His legacy lives on in the Iron Pit Hall of Fame. #IPG4L
@ Iron Pit Gym

The power is out at the gym but we will still be open at 9 AM today. The power should be back on by 1 PM today. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.
Hello friends- The gym has been without power/electricity since 3pm today. Some trees blew down on Church Lane from high winds and subsequently took power lines down too. Duke’s first update was the power would be back on by 9pm. The latest update from Duke is now 12:59 pm Monday June 24.
We will be at the gym Monday morning. You may exercise beginning at 9am except for equipment requiring electricity I. E.
