We’ve Come A Long Way

Our Story

Iron Neck started with a controversial idea: What if neck strength could help reduce whiplash and in turn reduce concussion risk in athletes? So we set out to get Iron Necks into NFL and NCAA weight rooms.

Along the way, we noticed more and more of our customers were treating their neck pain and poor posture. So we set out to make Iron Neck more wearable for everyone from NFL lineman to grandma!

What started with a focus on athlete safety has evolved into a modern approach to fixing the crippling posture of modern society.

We weren’t okay with everyone ignoring their neck muscles, so we set out to change the course of people’s lives, by putting a longevity tool in their hands…and on their heads
