How many years have you been at NWPT? I started 21 years ago when NWPT was located at Princeton athletic club. How do you do NWPT? What haven’t I done?

Seanette Corkill

I started working with NWPT by chance in the middle of COVID last June/July 2020, the least likely time to start a fitness program based upon their specialty, one-on-one coaching, but the program and the trainers (I train with Scott Campbell) were so adaptable in their approach we made it work. My initial goal, if…

The Millers are so consistent and have worked so hard!

We joined NWPT because of our neighbors the Mays. Janet and Ron have been clients at NWPT for years and always spoke highly of their experience. Cliff and I are avid bicyclists but determined we needed help with strength, flexibility, balance, and most importantly, motivation. We found that perfect blend with Scott Campbell (for Kelley)…

Talk about Dedication!

Cirith Anderson-Sebree

I’ve been an NWPT client on-and-off since 2007. I became serious about personal training in 2015 recuperating from a self-inflicted back injury at the gym. The injury was a jarring realization that my current workout routine (same one I used for the last two decades) was not optimized for my then 41-year-old body. Enter Judith….

Pam Ballard

I first started coming to NWPT in 2003, shortly after Northwest Personal Training opened their doors. I had been exercising for years, walking 4 to 5 miles each morning, going to 2 or 3 Jazzercise classes a week, and training for 1 or 2 half marathons each year. But something was missing from my routine….

I was encouraged to join NWPT by my business partner Joe Hutton. He has gone on for years on how beneficial his time spent here has been in keeping his physical conditioning up. As I have approached and past the 50 year mark, I knew I needed to do something to get back into shape,…

Prior to starting with Northwest Personal Training I had given up on gyms making a difference for me. I had seen my weight slowly creep upward from 187 lbs to 200 to 220 to a high point of 243 lbs. For years, my doctor had been after me to lose weight, and in January of…

What an AMAZING story!

Zoe Hill

When I was twelve years old I became a diabetic. The ironic thing about that day is I went to ice cream right before, and I got the biggest serving. I was always sitting, watching TV, eating the food that gave me an illness, in quantities that were out of control. Though between then and…

I’ve never been one to join a gym. From the stale air to those that go for all of the wrong reasons. Thanks to a good friend of mine, wink, wink Annette!, and a “Christmas present” from the husband, I reluctantly joined NW Personal Training. One of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Not only…

I wanted to let you know how much your Vancouver studio means to both Brian and I. We feel like it is our home away from home (perhaps because we are there 3 days a week). Every single person who works at the studio is so incredibly supportive, kind, and helpful! There isn’t a trainer…

Karey shows how passionate she is day in and day out through her amazing approach to fitness.

Karey Schoenfeld

I believe in living life to its fullest. I don’t sit still very easily, so the hardest part of training at NWPT is when I have to close my eyes and sit still at the end of a yoga/pilates class. Of course the spin classes, shockwave sessions, strength and boot camp classes are all tough…

When I came to NWPT last August I was in the worst shape of my life and was encouraged by my family and doctor to “do something different” as my health and general attitude were in a bad place. I had checked out emotionally after the unexpected death of my brother, and struggled with poor…

Gretchen Grey-Hatton

Each of us trains for different reasons. Some of us want to lose weight, others want to build muscle, while most of us want to look and feel great. Nearly ten years ago, I was in a head-on collision on Fruit Valley Road. While I’d survived physically, my body was broken. I suffered from near…

  I checked myself into the E.R. at Legacy Salmon Creek with chest pains, but that wasn’t the only reason I decided to join Northwest Personal Training. Two other self-awakening, rear-end-kicking, and ultimately life-changing experiences motivated me to invest in my health and fitness. In my late 30s, as a way of coping with stress, I…

After rotator cuff surgery in November 2014, I came to NWPT in February 2015 at the urging of my wife and started rehabbing my shoulder with Marijka.  My first thought was this gym is way too small, but I was so wrong.  I have always been active and worked out, but right away I found…

Not so long ago, I was completely out of shape and I couldn’t chase my son around the block without getting winded. Something had to change. I started running SLOWLY and for small periods of time: 1 min, 3 mins, 15 mins, and slowly, but surely, was able to run 3-5 miles (without stopping!) on…

The main reason for my success has been the motivation of the 6-week challenge, combined with training for the Gals and Dudes Triathlon (my first). Having Kara’s guidance on meal planning, as well as the accountability that comes from turning in food logs and meal plans and weekly weigh-ins, have made a big difference. I…
