Tom and Laura Farrell, Founders
Tom and Laura Farrell, a state trooper and teacher respectively, often dreamed of a gym where strength athletes could work out in a positive, motivating atmosphere.
They searched local gyms and just couldn’t find what their hearts were set on. So, in 2017, they decided to dream big and open up Sport of Iron Fitness! Sport of Iron began as a strength-only facility, but has morphed into a place where beginner and seasoned athletes thrive and grow!
Sport of Iron is a place for people of all fitness levels to find friendship, support, and encouragement.
Tom and Laura live right here in Kingston with their three children Ryan, Quinn, and Piper, and their dog, Rosie.
They will remain happily active here at Sport of Iron!

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“TO GIVE SPORT OF IRON THE LABEL OF A "GYM" WOULD BE A COMPLETE INJUSTICE. SPORT OF IRON IS A FAMILY, A FAMILY THAT WORKS OUT TOGETHER AND MORE IMPORTANTLY ENCOURAGES EACH OTHER TO BE THE VERY BEST.”
