At Shift Portland we believe fitness and movement are synonymous with a happy, healthy life. We see personal training as preventative medicine that will help cut healthcare costs and provide the quality of life we all hope for as we age. We believe personal training is for everyone and that no two people have the same wants, needs, or schedule. We take pride in getting to know our clients on a personal level and figuring out the goals and motivation of each individual. Whether you are recovering from an injury or surgery, starting a fitness routine for the first time, or are a seasoned athlete, Shift Portland will develop a completely individualized program to reach your goal and get you feeling better than you have in years.

At Shift-Portland there is no body-building or weight dropping. There is no loud music. There are no old, dirty machines. Just immaculately clean floors, personal attention, expertise, and music of your choice.

My philosophy is simple, CHALLENGE EVERYTHING! Everyday we are presented by different challenges in our life and my programs are designed to meet those challenges head on! By creating situations that make you work AND think, we can make those challenges easier to deal with physically and mentally. I focus on training the whole person, not just part!
