The Northwest Personal Training Difference


What Sets Us Apart

We are passionately committed to our mission of changing people’s lives around the world by helping them adopt a more healthy and fit lifestyle so they look and feel their best. Here’s what makes us different than your typical gym…

World’s Best Personal Trainers

A bold statement but we’ve got the international awards to prove it. Every fitness club has dumbbells and treadmills, but at Northwest Personal Training, our most important asset is our team of fitness professionals. We take our roles seriously and we don’t feel successful until you’ve achieved results. We challenge you to find another Personal Training studio in the world that houses the International Personal Trainer of the Year, International Fitness Director of the Year, International Fitness Presenter of the Year, or has as many fitness authors, bloggers, and presenters.

Meet Our Trainers
What other fitness and training studio has won countless community awards including being voted #1 Personal Training studio by the Columbian newspaper and the Vancouver Business Journal year after year, awarded the Community Builder award by the Chamber of Commerce and the Better Business Bureau Business of the Year award?! Nope, you’re not going to find it, not anywhere else in the world!

Community Awards
The only studio with these kinds of accolades is right here in little ole’ Vancouver WA! So why is that important to you? Well, it means we aren’t happy until our clients are successful! We’ve been in the downtown Vancouver area for over 20 years helping our amazing clients reach for their personal best. You can be confident that we will take great care of you! When it comes to your health, you deserve to work with the best!

We Guarantee Results

This is what sets us apart from others – our clients achieve life-changing results! Our primary focus is to ensure our clients achieve the goals they have set for themselves. Nothing brings us more joy than knowing that we have positively impacted someone’s life. This is what it’s all about for us. We have helped thousands of people achieve their fitness goals. Not convinced? Read the Inspirational Success Stories posted here. The results are impressive and will motivate you to take action today!

Personalized Attention

We want you to know that your workouts are all about you. Depending on your goals, fitness level, interests, and individual muscular needs, we will design a custom-fit plan perfect for you. Every fitness program is different – one size does not fit all! Being fit and healthy allows you to enjoy life and have the energy to pursue whatever your interest may be, whether that means running alongside your child or grandchild as they learn how to ride a new bike, playing your best game of golf or just looking amazing at your next high school reunion! We have worked with 90 year old grandmas to world class athletes so whether your goal is fat loss, muscle toning, improved energy, increased bone density, lowered stress levels or to train for a specific sport, we can help you get there.


If you’re like a lot of people, work, kids and other responsibilities took priority over your health. You put yourself last and let yourself go. Maybe you’ve gained some weight, your clothes don’t fit like they used to and you just don’t like what you see in the mirror anymore. Maybe your doc told you your blood pressure is high and your cholesterol is out of control. Perhaps you’re tight, your back hurts and your joints ache. Regardless – it’s time to take back control! Having a scheduled workout makes you commit the time to do what you need to do to be at your best. If you don’t show up, we’ll be calling to find out why! It’s exactly that type of accountability, support, and guidance that most people need to stick to a program long enough to experience life changing transformations. Everyone can benefit from having a Personal Coach oversee their program. We will personally monitor your progress and help you maintain your commitment to YOU!

Cutting-edge, Creative and Fun Workouts

We understand that when you start an exercise program, it can seem like quite a chore. For this reason, our team does whatever we can to make your exercise experience fun. When you’re having a good time, you’re more likely to workout! We host monthly events, activities, and parties to develop a sense of community and a social, friendly atmosphere. We are always the first to bring new, cutting-edge, innovative programs to Vancouver including Indo-Row, VIPR, Kettlebell Conditioning, BOSU Training, Tabata Training and more. We keep fitness fun and interesting! With us, it’s more than just a workout – it’s a lifestyle!

High-End Customer Service

Everyone says they have good customer service, but we stand behind our promises. In fact, we were voted the Better Business Bureau Business of the Year because of our attention to details and our daily customer service initiatives. As a boutique-style facility, you are not just a number among thousands! We provide an intimate and friendly environment – a place where everyone really does know your name. We strive for excellence in all areas.

Community Involvement

We focus all of our initiatives on increasing the quality of life in our community. We regularly host and sponsor fun runs, triathlons, adventure races, and exercise-a-thons to benefit local shelters and various charitable causes including heart disease and breast cancer. We have helped raise millions of dollars to local charities over the last 20 years. We love our community!

A Home Away From Home

We have worked hard to create an environment that is motivating, uplifting, intimate, and welcoming. Our facility is immaculate and beautiful – it doesn’t look or smell like your typical gym. In fact, a KGW Channel 8 news report found our facility to be the cleanest gym in the area. We provide a home away from home – if you enjoy the atmosphere where you work out you’ll be more likely to get here, and we know from experience that it’s that type of consistency that’s the key to results. Once you’re here we take care of everything else. In fact, our clients tell us they love how they feel when they exercise with us and are motivated to show up more often – and that’s our goal!

Locally Owned and Operated

We have been locally owned and operated since 2000 and that’s important to a lot of people. Did you know that if you spend $100 at a locally owned business then, on average, $68 goes back to the local economy? Spend the same $100 at a national, large chain and only $43 returns to the local economy! Make your purchases matter. Put your money where you live and where your kids go to school and support your friends and neighbors while you get in great shape!

What sets us apart from others?

We provide personalized strength and fitness workouts led by world-class, award-winning trainers. As a result, our clients achieve life-changing transformations.
