Infusionsoft, a small business sales and marketing software firm, recognized the owners of a Birmingham company among 24 entrepreneurs in the nation.

Forrest Walden and Jim Cavale of Iron Tribe Fitness were named in Infusionsoft’s “Accidentally in Love” category, for entrepreneurs who took a passion and made it into a full-fledged business.

“Iron Tribe Fitness, the fastest growing fitness franchise in the country, started as a group of friends working out together in Forrest Walden’s garage. Forrest opened the first Iron Tribe gym in 2010, and friend Jim Cavale opened the company’s second a year later. Today, Iron Tribe Fitness has sold 60 franchises in 10 states and has raised nearly $500,000 for various charities, including Neverthirst and Team Red, White and Blue,” the Infusionsoft profile says.
