We are identical twins, Paola and Pamela Del Hierro known as the Iron Twins. Peruvian born, raised in Canada now living in the USA. Our last name is Spanish and translates to “of Iron”.
Born into a family of artists, our father was an actor and singer in Peru where he met our mother a professional ballerina while sharing the stage in a big theatre production in Lima. They fell in love, married and shortly after started a family. Our parents later made a very difficult decision leaving everything and everyone behind immigrating to Canada with our older brother when we were only one and a half years old, to give us a better life.
From childhood we were exposed to art, music and movement, with a passion for designing since we were old enough to hold a pencil. Paola climbed the corporate ladder working for several years as a Digital Marketing and Brand Professional, while Pamela always knew she wanted to be her own boss and founded her first company Double Vision Interactive in Canada travelling the world as a freelance Web/Graphic designer.
Our tenacity and thirst for adventure led us to discover CrossFit and Obstacle Racing (OCR) back in 2013, where we were instantly hooked. Our passion for the sport and camaraderie grew so strong that we decided to make it a lifestyle constantly looking for new challenges, which landed us as two of the participants on History Channels, “The Selection: Special Operations Experiment” where they placed 30 men and women with no military background through the most intense physical and mental challenge of our lives. That experience changed us forever in truly understanding the power of the mind and the will to keep pushing forward.
Our passion evolved from designers to designing healthy and fit lifestyles, where we went on to become Coaches at the first ever Spartan Gym at 1 Hotel in Miami Florida and CoFounded Iron Army, a high intensity beach training developing mentally strong life warriors through obstacle training and functional fitness.
Just when we thought we were living out our dream and passion working together in the fitness industry we found out we were BOTH pregnant and if that wasn’t crazy enough we were both expecting boys! Little did we know that Motherhood would be our greatest obstacle, life changing on every level; mental, physical, emotional and spiritual where quitting is NOT an option. We are truly grateful for having had one another through each and every stage of pregnancy, postpartum and the ongoing journey as mom’s in this next chapter of life, so much that we’ve made it our mission to specialize in helping women stay active safely through proper modifications and listening to their bodies. Through our own personal experiences, support system, and iron will we aim to help motivate and inspire active pregnancies, get strong, and build confidence through fitness and a healthy lifestyle. Because every next level of your life demands a new level of you.
