Meet the Team
Personal Trainer, Founder of Iron Lab Strength & Conditioning
Martin Voslar founded Iron Lab Strength and Conditioning in 2011 with a single purpose: to help others achieve the body and life of their dreams so they can live their lives to the fullest.
Martin grew up in the Czech Republic in the infamous “chemical city” Usti nad Labem, known for its plastic melting acid rains and deadly smog conditions. Combined with a lack of interest in sports, Martin’s fitness was less than stellar, should we say.
As a teenager he was flabby with a belly, unable to do a single push up or run for more than 50 meters without gasping for air. He was frustrated about the way he looked and feel, he suffered from bullying at school, and his most hated subject was physical education.
This nightmare lasted until he was 15 years old. His breaking point was watching a pirated version of Rocky IV (that’s the one where Sly is fighting Dolph Lundgren). The story of an underdog and hard work inspired Martin and since then he’s never looked back. The very next day he joined the only gym in town and started to lift weights.
Martin explored various ways to get fit, from popular bodybuilding training programs, taekwondo classes, one-year service in the elite Czech Special Forces and CrossFit, to behavior psychology and energy work. Ever since, Martin’s curiosity and desire to learn more about human body and mind has grown.
In his free time Martin loves to travel and watching movies with his wife Andrea.
