Eternity Fitness has been integrating alternative training and the CrossFit method in its program as early as 2005-06, which at the time was completely unheard of this side of the world. As the market continued to grow a need for a new chapter eventually evolved into its own identity with Iron Dragon being approved affiliate in early 2011. At that time the gym relocated to its second location, together with CKC China Kettelbell Club, and Eternity VIP Fitness, became the premier hardcore and functional training venue and the first “box” gym in China. Offering specialty supercharged workouts not found anywhere else. Dealing with the unstable market and faced many challenges with the demolition of the entire neighborhood to make way for new high rises Iron Dragon once again moved to relocate to its new central facility which is now easily accessible from downtown French Concession, Xujiahui, Gubei and Zhongshan Park.
Iron Dragon is the ORIGINAL & LEADING and indeed one of the most UNIQUE and HARDCORE GYM you could find ANYWHERE! with an advanced and structured program that has evolved over many years to suit both the recreational trainer to elite athlete.
