Here’s what our members say about us!

Lightweight Rower

"I have been at IPC for almost two years now and it was one of the best decisions I have made for my athletic career. Not only did the staff at IPC help me accomplish athletic goals that I thought were out of reach, they helped me become a more confident person. To me, this made all the difference in my training. You join a family here that is like no other. Every single person in the gym will help push you to be your best. Coach Matrixx, Coach Myles, and Coach Paul are the best of the best; they are always working and learning to better serve their athletes. I could not have accomplished my goals without them. If you truly want to be an elite athlete this is the place to go. I would recommend IPC to anyone who has a dream, this is where dreams become reality."

Niagara Falcons-Catcher

"I started at IPC in the fall of 2020 and I can firmly say that this has been one of the greatest decisions of my athletic career. The atmosphere of the community, as well as the athletes and coaches (Matrixx, Myles, and Paul), has an energy that is like no other. It makes this gym so special. Working with Coach Paul has helped me get ready for this upcoming baseball season by using specific programming. Paul has motivated me and encouraged me to break my goals and to set new ones as my journey at IPC continues. I have already seen massive gains in my strength progression as well as my mental mindset and I truly cannot thank them enough for what they have done so far. I can honestly say that IPC is the place to go if you’re looking to improve as an athlete. This is the place where dreams turn into reality."

St. Thomas University-Outside Hitter

"If you truly want to push yourself to become the best, IPC is the place for you. I spent my summer training at IPC and it is no lie when I say it is one of the best decisions I have made for my athletic career. The IPC culture is like nothing else in Niagara, both Coach Matrixx and Myles will push you to become the best you can be mentally and physically. When you walk into the gym, everyone treats you like family. While each person is striving to better themselves, they still care about the success of everyone around them. Even on the days that I really had no motivation to train, the moment I started warming up changed my focus. Hearing the music and the weights hitting the floor replaced any objection with excitement. Thanks to IPC, I smashed my goals for training and because of this I would highly recommend IPC to anyone who is driven and wants to become their best self."

CEO - Homes By Hendriks

"I have been training at this facility for some time now. The staff (Matrixx & Myles), atmosphere, equipment, cleanliness and experience they bring is second to none. They have people training there from all walks of life, from pro athletes to your everyday people like me, and structure the program to suit your lifestyle. I would highly recommend this to anyone no matter where you are at in your fitness journey."

University of Victoria Lightweight Crew

"Iron Performance Center is hands down the best gym in the Niagara region. The environment, the coaches and the athletes make this gym like no other. I joined IPC this summer and it was the best decision I made for my rowing career. Coach Matrixx and Coach Myles pushed me to limits I couldn’t imagine going to. They made me into a well-rounded athlete and a better person. I am confident when I head to the University of Victoria that I will be ready for what’s to come. Huge thank you to the strength staff at IPC."

Lightweight Rower

"I have been working out with Coach Trixx at IPC for just over a year and a half, and in the fall of 2020, I will be attending my dream school: Harvard University. Coach Trixx and the IPC staff helped develop me into a stronger, smarter, and more competitive athlete. What makes IPC stand out is the level of care, attention, and dedication put into every aspect of the athlete. We have focused on trying to minimize my weaknesses and capitalize on my strengths, all while staying injury-free. I have seen gains go past the physical level as I developed confidence with myself and my sport-specific abilities. As I transition into the next phase of my life, I am confident in my ability to succeed at the collegiate level. Through IPC, I have learned how to take care of myself as an athlete so as to have a longer, more successful career. I can confidently say that Coach Trixx has helped elevate my game and instilled the tools to achieve success at whatever I set out to accomplish."

Local Badass

"From my first consultation at IPC, I felt comfortable and excited to become a stronger me. Training with Coach Myles to achieve my goals is something I look forward to every workout. He is truly passionate about coaching and really helps me believe in myself. Both Coach Matrixx and Coach Myles are very knowledgeable and patient. The physical training culture at IPC has helped me become stronger in all areas of my life. Whether your goal is to lose weight, become stronger or join a great atmosphere, IPC is the training facility to make your goals a reality."

Offensive Line-Niagara Spears

"After knowing Coach Myles for a couple years from playing football with the Niagara Spears and him coaching me, I knew how good of a leader and how driven he is. Myles suggested I start training with him at IPC and I couldn't be any happier being there. The chemistry between Myles and Matrixx is unmatched. Training there since March has helped me become a better athlete on the field and student in the classroom! Myles has helped with any weak points in my lifting and any weak points in my game. IPC is by far the best training facility in the Niagara area for everyone, from pro athletes to your daily lifter."

Becca & Cruiz

"Working out with Matrixx at IPC is one of the highlights of our week. He is always enthusiastic, motivating, and making sure our workouts are challenging, hard and in line with our goals. Matrixx’s knowledge is what makes the sessions so special, as he can quickly adapt and change exercises to account for any injuries or soreness. He balances hard work with smart training. We would 100% recommend the IPC to any athlete or individual looking to improve their strength and conditioning."

Defense-Fort Wayne Komets

"I showed up to Iron Performance unsure what to expect. After my first meeting with Myles I couldn’t believe how invested he was with making sure I was doing the right things every day, and getting me better constantly. Both he and Matrixx have a wealth of knowledge. They make training enjoyable and push you at the same time. I can honestly say I never once dreaded going to Iron Performance and I feel stronger and faster on the ice because of them. I would recommend Iron Performance to absolutely anyone, as they can make a program for athletes or people looking to reach certain goals. Go give the best gym in Niagara a check, you won’t regret it!"

Linebacker-University of Western Ontario

"IPC is the spot if you want to take your training experience to the next level. It’s where you can expect to be pushed to your limits and beyond. The training programs are compiled to suit your personal needs. From explosiveness to mobility, the staff is well educated to set you up for success in your training goals. If someone is a young athlete looking to move forward to the next level, IPC is the perfect spot for them. They know what it takes to excel and be physically and mentally ready. It’s not an easy jump to make and I believe elite athletes need what the IPC family offers. To share a little from my experience, I came to Myles going into my 5th year of university football with many injuries as well as specific goals for myself. Myles was able to help manage nagging injuries as well as hit all my goals and more. His knowledge, enthusiasm and experience made it all possible. Going to IPC was the best thing I could have done to maximize my off-season. IPC is the place to be if you want to maximize your body and mind."

Center-Embry Riddle University

"IPC isn't just a gym. It's a place where you get big, fast and strong while picking up a life lesson or two. I've been working with Matrixx for a few months now and have been overly impressed with the work he puts in to each of his athletes. Throughout the summer, Matrixx has helped prepared me for the intensity and physical demands of university basketball. I have increased my weight, become more agile and continue to improve conditioning test scores. I am proud to say I belong to a gym like Iron Performance Center. Coach Matrixx and Coach Myles continue to put their heart and souls into the gym and truly work to make you better. Whether you're a high performance athlete or just looking to get fit, IPC is the place to be."

Defense-Wenatchee Wild

"IPC creates an environment for anyone to be successful. Whether you are training for sport or personal fitness, the coaches and atmosphere drive athletes to fulfill their goals. IPC has provided me with personalized strength training for hockey. After my first off-season at IPC, I can honestly say I have improved my speed, strength, power and mobility. The knowledge and personal gains I have developed this off-season will stay with me as I head into my first season in the British Columbia Hockey League. Watching Coach Matrixx and Coach Myles be so passionate about training makes it a lot easier to come in and push yourself everyday. Since beginning training with Coach Matrixx, I have seen tremendous growth in my physicality and my mind set. If there is one person that knows how to get the most out of people, it is Coach Matrixx. I cannot express how grateful I am for IPC and how much they have done for me in such a small time period. I look forward to continuing to train here in the future and would highly recommended IPC to any individual serious about getting better."

Setter-University of Windsor

"I’ve been training with Matrixx at IPC for a little shy of a year now, but I can confidently say that choosing to train here has been one of the best decisions I’ve made. The coaching staff at IPC are unlike any other coaches I have worked with; they are extremely devoted to their work and are eager to help their clients excel in every way possible. Not only has training with Matrixx pushed me to become a better athlete physically, but mentally as well. He has always been committed to helping me achieve my goals, and he continuously goes out of his way to make my training the best it can be. Since training at IPC, I have seen tremendous improvements in all areas of my sport performance and I am excited to continue training! The staff here want nothing but the best for every person that walks into their gym. All they ask for in return is hard work and a positive attitude. I highly recommend IPC to anyone who is simply willing to put in the work and be dedicated to their training."

Buffalo Jr. Sabres

"IPC is the best spot in the Niagara region for athletes who are willing to work hard. IPC has provided me with an incredible off-season training experience. The coaching staff is always trying to help me get to the next level. The coaches at IPC have immense knowledge in strength training, and are always trying to learn more! Having coaches who are passionate and love what they do has created an exceptional culture at IPC.

Personally, Coach Myles has been instrumental to my off-season training. He designed an incredible program specifically for me and was able to coach me through it. The results have been amazing!

I would recommend any athlete to work with Coach Myles, and I can't wait for many more years to come! Athletes who are dedicated to their training will see tremendous improvements in their overall strength, speed, and power over their time at IPC. At IPC the gains don't come through gimmicks, just HARD work!"

Wide Receiver - University of Waterloo

"IPC is the spot in Niagara if you want to get your body right for the season or just to get some good work in. Myles is a great trainer that knows what he’s doing. He also lets you know why you’re doing a specific movement so you have a better understanding of why you’re doing the exercises. The gym has a great atmosphere, especially when you get with a group of guys/girls that are going to challenge you to do more. 10/10 would recommend for athletes all ages and even people just looking to stay in shape."

Fullback - BC Lions

"I honestly can’t say enough about Coach Myles and everyone at IPC. Day in and day out they provide a level of expertise that is unmatched in the Niagara region when it comes to strength and conditioning. Personally coach Myles has been able to shape programs in a manner that have attacked my weakness and gotten me ready to perform at a professional level. One of my favourite parts about IPC and coach Myles is that they give you the reasoning behind everything that you do within your programming. I wouldn’t trust anyone else in the Niagara region when it comes to strength and conditioning! For younger guys looking to play university football (or any sport for that matter) I would highly recommend you get to IPC ASAP. You won’t be disappointed!"

Elevator Mechanic

"I started it off with no experience or knowledge when it came to strength conditioning training. I have been training here for two months now and my knowledge and my physical performance has sky rocketed. Being safe, pushing myself harder then I ever thought imaginable and seeing great results. This facility and staff is the cleanest and most welcoming place I have ever been in and out of the fitness community. The staff make the extra effort of remembering your name and greeting you from day one. I personally train with Myles and his knowledge and passion for training is extremely contagious making me wake up every morning hoping today is a day I train at this facility. Highly recommend this place and it’s staff!"

Lightweight Rower

"I have spent a lot of time training with Matrixx and, as a result, have seen fantastic results and success in my sport of rowing. He not only allowed me to build a very solid strength base but also helped to keep me injury-free in a sport that is extremely demanding and relentless to one’s body. In part because of his high quality and meaningful training, I have been admitted to a top U.S. university to compete as a Division 1 rower. Thank you Iron Performance Center!"

Queens University Basketball

"Throughout my time with Matrixx and his staff, I can 100% say he is the best trainer in the Niagara Region. Since day 1, he always wanted the best for me, whether it was those 6am wake ups or 44 sled laps. He was always investing in me, and would continue to motivate me to be better"

Canadian Armed Forces

"In my personal experience, Iron Performance Center is a great gym to go to if you're looking for results. With adaptable training methods, it's a strong fit for anyone willing to put in effort and reach for a higher standard. This could be the average Joe looking to lose a few pounds or someone who is joining the army in 9 weeks (me). Overall it was a great experience and would gladly go back when I get the chance"

Accountant, Firm Partner

"I’ve been training with Matrixx at IPC consistently for 6 months and have seen the well rounded progress that I was looking for. Even though my training sessions are one on one, the IPC feels like a community atmosphere as I follow the progress of the other trainees and athletes through social media. It is encouraging to see others making progress and I believe it promotes a little bit of friendly competition within the group. At IPC they have recently implemented a client portal which is a great resource for online training videos, articles, etc. It just goes to show the passion the trainers have for what they do.

The programming that Matrixx puts together for me has a ton of variety including a comprehensive warm up, strength lifts, accessory and conditioning. Fitting all of this into a one hour session requires a lot of careful planning on the programming side and the results have been better than I expected. As a coach what I appreciate most about Matrixx is the intensity that he brings to each of MY workouts – it’s hard to not give my best when he is giving that much attention and effort to what I’m doing. His approach is a good blend of being encouraging but firm and he is patient in ensuring form and technique are on point. I’ve found I’ve worked out harder than ever before yet recover well and look forward to the next challenging session ahead.

Overall I’ve seen my conditioning improve, my strength increase while getting leaner and dropping stubborn body fat. I’m in the best shape of my life and believe that being a part of IPC has been instrumental in getting here.

Congrats to the team at IPC for putting together a truly top notch training facility, loaded with high quality equipment and trainers!"

Correctional Officer

"Matrixx is a fantastic conditioning expert. He truly is a professional with his knowledge and ability to transfer the skills from the weight room to real life. The facility is super clean and the equipment is high quality."

Strongman Competitor

"Matrixx and his team have put together an absolutely amazing training facility that is one of the best not just in the area but in the province. The custom program helped me in my performance for several strongman competitions as well as the FitCO fitness test. Be sure to check out this gym!"

Bus Driver for City of St. Catharines

"I signed up with Matrixx to increase my fitness level and get back on track with my health and I knew I needed some structure and accountability to get me started.

I had the opportunity to observe Matrixx with other clients at the gym we were in. He was always positive and professional with everyone and that prompted me to give Iron Performance Center a try.

It couldn’t have worked out better! My workouts now come first, I LOVE going to the gym, my clothes fit better and I feel great! I might also mention that I am now strong and ABLE. Go girl power!

Matrixx works hard at making things fit with my abilities, restrictions and schedule. He adapts quickly to changes and is always motivating! It’s clear that he’s there to help me achieve my goals and that’s what a good coach is all about!

Whether you’re new to training or an experienced athlete Iron Performance will help you succeed!"

Thorold Firefighter

"I used Iron Performance to help prepare me for the CPAT physical testing to become hired as a volunteer firefighter for the city of Thorold. Matrixx was very knowledgeable about the test requirements. His coaching style combined with his comprehensive training programs allowed me to ace my CPAT and become hired with the Fire Hall. His help was tremendous and greatly appreciated"

Director of Technology

I had reservations of my time due to work, early meetings to unexpected issues that take up a lot of my time. By being flexible with the schedule, Matrixx has helped me work past my reservations

Matrixx was really helpful, and motivating. He made the experience much more enjoyable by constantly pushing us to work our hardest.

Niagara Rapids Outside Hitter

Iron Performance has been an eye-opening experience for me and has made me realize that in order for me to achieve my goals I need to be the best I can be both mentally and physically. Matrixx is a great motivator and I have been very happy with his commitment to me and my goals.

"After a devastating spinal injury, I wanted to return to being able to squat and deadlift. You've helped me battle past psychological roadblocks and instilled confidence so that I am able to do so."

Head of Food Safety, Nestle North America

"Working with many trainers, I'm always skeptical when selecting a new one (as some are better than others). Matrixx is definitely one of the best ones. He is a great motivator and has helped my stress management. He always communicates areas of focus and the importance in relation to my training. He explains the 'why' of training. Since working with him, I've become more consistent with my nutrition and my stress management."

Wide Receiver for the Hamilton Hurricanes

"I had the privilege to be trained by Matrixx and Iron Performance during my time with the Niagara College Men's Basketball Team. As a coach, he was very motivating and pushed me beyond my limits. He demanded the best from me every time I stepped into the gym. His programs really helped me improve my strength and endurance for games and my future days with the Hamilton Hurricanes."

"Performance does matter thanks to Iron Performance!"

National Team Member for Wrestling Canada

"Preparing for the World Championships meant a tough road ahead. I had to be in the best shape of my life while being mentally tough and focused. Coach Matrixx and the Iron Performance staff ensured my training was optimized and focused for what I needed to do. I progressively got stronger while recovering faster. They truly helped prepare me for what will be one of the biggest tournaments of my life."
