More than just a gym
Industrial Athletics is a community of people striving after a stronger and healthier lifestyle. We are proud to offer Thunder Bay a gym where members can come to focus on their own style of training and chase after their fitness goals – whether you’re into strength & conditioning training, body building, crossfit, powerlifting, or olympic lifting.
From the very beginning we have strived to create a community where anyone at any level of fitness can feel welcome and at home.
We also offer personal training for anyone wanting to work 1on1 with a trainer to really push themselves towards their goals.
Anyone at any level of
fitness is welcome here.
In 2017 we opened a glorified garage gym in the south end of Thunder Bay, tucked away in the far corner of Westfort. The original idea was simple; we wanted to create a training space where we could workout, come and go anytime we wanted, and if we could get a few members to join that would be a bonus. After our first month we had 30+ members and realized that we weren’t going to stay a garage gym for very long. 4 months after opening we knocked down walls and expanded from 750ft² of gym space to 4000ft² and Industrial Athletics has continued to evolve since.
In September 2019 we purchased a building on Frederica St. and moved the gym into its permanent home.
