Personal Training 

A Personal Trainer 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) and make fitness fun for any fitness level!

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 third session we add
additional programming for ongoing progress.

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 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.

Personal Program Orientation
A fitness specialist will spend one hour with you to show you how to use all of the cardio equipment, and devise a safe, effective weight training routine personalized to your body type and fitness goals.
Fee: one 1-hour session: $45
Individual Personal Training
Make an appointment with a personal trainer, who will oversee your progress and hold you accountable. Our excellent personal training staff will motivate you to make a fresh start, or reach a new level in your fitness.
Fee: one 1-hour session: $45  three 1-hour sessions: $120  six 1-hour sessions: $234
Buddy Training
Set-up a personal training session with a friend. Personal training with friends is a great way to stay motivated, workout with your friends and save money!

To purchase personal training sessions, call 503-823-3183 or visit the front desk at Mt. Scott Community Center 

PP&R requires a PAR-Q (Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire) form to be filled out 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.

Must be at least 14 years old to participate in fitness program.


Haley Wilde

Biography: I’ve been a runner, cyclist and soccer player for most of my life, but it wasn’t until I started lifting weights that I became fascinated with the many different facets of functional fitness. As a graduate of PCC’s Fitness Technology program, I have developed a solid foundation of knowledge for working with a wide-range of populations and I strive to be as knowledgeable as possible when it comes to
accommodating my clients.

Philosophy: As much as I love fitness, I know that lack of accessibility can be a major issue for many people. My goal is to help everyone I work with feel empowered as well as challenged in their training. Whether it’s prevention or recovery from injuries, working with an acute or chronic condition, training for optimum performance in a specific event or sport, or just wanting to improve your general level of fitness, I’m excited to help get you set on the health track that works best for you and your goals.

Heather Ennis

Biography: I graduated from Central Washington University receiving my Bachelors of Science in Fitness and Sports Management and a minor in Athletic Training. After graduating, I became certified by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and shortly after moved to Portland. Over the years, I have worked for Portland Parks & Recreation, Oregon Health & Science University, and Cambia, as a trainer and group exercise instructor.

Philosophy: I enjoy working with all populations, from those who have never stepped foot into a gym to those who can’t stay away.  It’s rewarding to help people who feel intimidated by the gym to build their confidence and teach them to safely workout to avoid injury and gain an understanding of what kinds of workouts would suit them best. It’s also rewarding to work with experienced gym-goers who may be looking for new and creative workout plans to help them stay motivated.
