Fitness business to celebrate 3 years of operation this weekend

For 10 years, Jarrin Lewis has been dedicated to his fitness journey. After moving back to Selma, he decided to start his own business encouraging and helping others do the same.

“It was something I hadn’t seen anybody really do in the area, and I felt it was also needed here,” he said. “I had some help putting it together and it just took off from there and grew.”

Lewis started Iron Fittness in 2015 as a small boot camp, and this weekend the organization will be celebrating its third anniversary Saturday morning at Bloch Park at 6:30 p.m.

The celebration will include Zumba, pound fitness, kickboxing, boot camp and CrossFit style workouts, but Lewis said the workouts are only a part of it. He said he thinks the entire event will be special for everyone to come together to enjoy each other and promote health and wellness, especially in the city.  

“More than anything, this anniversary will be more of a celebration,” he said. “We’re looking forward to seeing some new and old faces, having a great time, fellowship and of course have a great workout.”

Lewis also instructs the Total Toning class at the YMCA every Tuesday and Thursday. He said teaching the classes have helped start the following for Iron Fittness.

He said there have been ups and downs, but he is grateful to the faithful and dedicated clients he has.

“We’ve been able to maintain a motivated and dedicated group over the years,” he said. “We thank all of our clients new and old. They’ve hung with us through it all and we value and appreciate them greatly. If it wasn’t for them we wouldn’t be here.”
