Interested in Personal Training?

Contact our front desk in person or by phone 503-823-3450 for more information today!

PP&R requires a A PAR-Q (Physical Activity Readiness) form to be filled out completely and returned. Once we have that paperwork, you pick a trainer, register and pay. The trainer will then contact you to set up an appointment.

What can a personal trainer do for you?

They can help you design a personalize fitness program, learn proper form and safe ways to exercise, provide accountability and motivation, track progress with fitness assessments (Postural, body, fat, strength, core and more) for any fitness level and make fitness fun!

  • For the fit: if you’ve been working out for years, maybe all you need is a session or two to evaluate and modify your current program.
  • For the newbie: If you are new to exercise we highly recommend a minimum of 3 sessions. One to go over health history, establish basic goals and how to properly use the equipment; session two, to review after you’ve practiced your program; at the thirds session we add additional programming for on going progress.
  • For the committed: ongoing sessions for motivation education and goal review. We suggest a session at least once a month as a reward for your commitment to your health.
