Testimonials


“I have been training at Energy for almost ten years and as I enter my mid 40’s it has been an amazing way to keep my strength, flexibility, and endurance up while remaining injury free and in great shape for the other activities (mountain biking, snowboarding) that I pursue.”

- Tim J M.D., 44

I've been an Energy Fitness client for more than three years and it has been an exceptional experience. Energy Fitness is the perfect but affordable alternative to big-box gyms that can be crowded and impersonal with here today-gone tomorrow trainers. At Energy Fitness you receive truly personal attention from your professional trainer (my trainer Jared is especially great) at a spacious and well-equipped fitness studio. Regardless of your age or prior fitness experience, your Energy Fitness trainer will work with you to craft a plan that keeps you motivated and shows results. It's the best fitness studio in NW Portland!

“I don't like big box gyms and love the personal, friendly atmosphere at Energy. The trainers are positive, good at what they do and make workouts fun. Highly recommended."

"I've struggled to stay on track with my health and fitness goals so have found a weekly session with my trainer at Energy to be a great way to stay motivated and get the strength training I wouldn't otherwise do on my own."

"I appreciate the personal care and attention from my trainer at Energy which goes beyond just helping me with exercise and strength training. I've been dealing with foot and leg pain and he has helped me with massage, stretching and specific exercises to help address those issues. He also provides nutrition advice and we discuss my overall health so I feel cared for in addition to motivated to stay on track."

- Amy Winkelman, 44

Gordon and his team have created an environment where everyone feels welcome....younger and older, men and women, gay and straight, in shape and not so in shape. This place has the friendliest vibe of any gym I've been to.

It is very hard not to love all of them and their families because they are so very caring and it is just amazing how strong you can become under their tutelage! They will adjust your training to fit your needs. I look forward to going there!

- Peggy Christensen, 72

“As you know I’ve been coming for several years now after the positive experiences of my wife. The workouts are always fun, well diversified, and at the end I’m tired but always glad for the workout. The trainers are all friendly particularly to the old timers like me. And the expansion of the gym from the previous setup has been very positive and allowed for much more space for those working out. Look forward to coming for many more years.”

- Barry Edwards, 71

“I love to feel strong! There is a moment that comes to a few sessions in when I realize I AM stronger because of what Gordon pushes me to do. It arrives in the middle of a set and I'll realize my form is better, the weight is heavier, and I'm feeling confident. I love that moment! Thank you, Gordon, for the creative, challenging workouts and Energy Fitness for a comfortable, inspiring space.”

- Darcy L. Rawls

"I started training with Gordon approximately a year ago (2010). In the beginning, I was hesitant to spend the money and thought perhaps I would train with him for a couple of months and then just keep it going on my own. A year later, the results I have had have been immeasurable, and I consider it the best money I spend. I would cut back on a lot of other areas before I would give up my training at Energy Fitness.

The immeasurable: My overall health. Much more energy, better balance, strength, posture, flexibility, and firmness are all much improved, as well as my general sense of well-being. I just feel better!

The measurable: Loss of 20 pounds, multiple inches (4 inches around my hips), my cholesterol and blood pressure are down, I can now wear clothes I have not been able to wear in several years.

Gordon is extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic, full of encouragement, and really makes use of the time I spend working with him. I work hard but always feel so good after my workout. I have worked out with a number of personal trainers over the years, and I would choose Gordon over any of them. He has made a huge difference in my life."
