FARMINGTON — Millions of people from all walks of life find the determination to get into the gym every single day.

For a select few at the Ironwood Gym located in downtown Farmington, the desire to get in a good workout has more than just personal fitness benefits.

“I like to think of it as the safe space for people who might have felt they didn’t have one before,” said Billy DuTremaine, co-owner of the gym as well as Cottonwood Clinical Services and the recently opened food truck pavilion known as Locke Street Eats.

Ironwood Gym, which opened last year, has become a place where people recovering from substance abuse issues can go to not only aid in their recovery, but also find productive and positive ways to get back in shape.
