Chuck Amato Fitness Center

By David Nguyen


Nick and Portland Parks & Recreation Director Mike Abbaté were pleased to join dozens of long-time fitness trainer Chuck Amato’s clients, friends, and family at Matt Dishman Community Center.

To honor Chuck's 50 years of service, the fitness center at the Community Center has been named in his honor.


A former Mr. Olympia, Chuck has trained hundreds of Portlanders for the past 50 years, many of whom have been affected by strokes, brain injuries, and other ailments.
