Welcome to Ironwear Fitness®.

For over 20 years, Ironwear® has been the leading supporter of medical research focused on how to use wearable weights to improve physical and mental health. Around the world, Ironwear® is supporting a wide range of research including reducing recovery time for joint replacement, increasing bone density for women, and improving coordination for MS patients.

Working with Harvard Medical School, Ironwear® created the first safe weighted vests for older adults. Harvard has used Ironwear vests over the years to study how to improve the health of older adults and to prove that older adults can live longer, independent lives by training with the Ironwear vests. For children of two years and older, Ironwear® was the first to create children’s weighted vests, and these vests are now used for the treatment of ADHD and other sensory disorders. For athletes in all different sports, Ironwear® has been developing new specialized products and supporting medical research to better understand how wearable weights can enhance an athlete's strength and endurance.

Mississippi State University is the latest recipient of Ironwear® support. MSU just received a donation of 24 Ironwear® Uni-Vests from Ironwear for their medical study on the use of weighted athletic training for increasing athletic performance.

Ironwear®’s goal is to improve life by helping to solve one person’s problem at a time.
