Our Heritage

Iron Edge's serious training mission started back in 2002. At the time, company founder Rick Ravensdale was an accomplished athlete and personal trainer. But he was frustrated. He couldn't understand why most training equipment was so inadequate at developing dynamic, functional athletes. So Rick studied the way professional strength athletes trained - especially the dominant Russian Olympians. And that's how he discovered kettlebells.

Back then kettlebells were confined to Russia. No-one would send Rick one. So, with the help of a local cabinet maker and foundry, Rick made his own. The impact the kettlebell had on Rick's training was immediate. More strength. More power. And so, with nothing more than a maxed out credit card, Rick started manufacturing kettlebells in Australia. Iron Edge was born.

The Mission

Build better athletes through better training

In the years that have followed Iron Edge has grown significantly. But the focus has never changed. We aren't seduced by fads or gimmicks. Just products that are proven to better the athlete. It's resulted in a range that reflects over 100 years of strength training evolution. From mace bells, used by the incredible strongmen of the 1920's, through to modern innovations like Matrix frames and Aqua Bags. Now over 1000 products. And every one capable of playing a useful role in your training program.

Serious Training

Training properly is hard. There are no shortcuts. You have to be serious about it. For many this is hard to accept. For the rest of you, there's Iron Edge.

The Serious Training System is our answer to all the lies, gimmicks and quick fixes permeating the fitness industry. It's the result of over 10 years working with Australia's elite athletes including AFL and NRL premiers, National Champions and the Defence Forces. It dictates every product we sell, every workshop we run and every gym we fit out because it works. And that's all that matters.

The Serious Training System:

  • 1Train the primal body movements
  • 2Resistance must be 3-dimensional
  • 3Vary the implements and the intensity
  • 4Train often
  • 5Incorporate pre-hab and re-hab protocols
