Portland >Empower Fitness
Yoga teachers are fantastic! Well trained. They know what they are doing and do a great job of explaining the minute details of each pose.
I Feel Empowered!.
I joined Empower Fitness about a year ago and I LOVE IT! The other gyms I belonged to in the past felt like meat markets and overly crowded. I absolutely love going to empower fitness. I feel like I can do my own thing without people watching me all the time. I can really concentrate on my workout, and believe me, I always get in a good one.
Troy and Jay Jay have been so helpful to me. They are both excellent trainers. I would say the best I ever had, and the prices are great!
I took Yoga with Lidia for the first time in my life and I love that too. They also offer spa services, such as massage and facials. Sally gives an awesome massage, and Kelly's facials are out of this world. Iv'e never had a better massage or facial anywhere. I love that Empower Fitness offers all of these services to me. I feel like they have saved my life and I am EMPOWERED!
Perfect!. The knowledge of the trainers is phenomenal! The location is convenient, (near Pearl and PSU). The space is pleasant, clean, organized, and the workout is HARD but affordable! If you are not into the 'flesh' parade of other gyms, this is the one for you! My trainer, Taylor, is on time, efficient, and knowledgeable, not to mention, funny, articulate, and cute! The facility has other amenities I haven't utilized but I'd like to, such as massage, spiritual counseling, and other spa services.
Fantastic place to work out!. Empower Fitness is a very different kind of facility, far from the "big box" gyms where people go to socialize or pick up other members. It's a much more intimate setting with good energy and a relaxing feel to it, while at the same time providing innovative fitness equipment for a complete workout. The entertainment centers at each cardio station are a nice touch. There is plenty of room for stretching and relaxation as well. The trainers are all very knowledgeable and always willing to help and advise. They also offer intense group-training classes as well and yoga and many other sevices. I have really enjoyed being a member there!
Thank you. I recently was visiting my mother (who is a member) from out-of-state and was immediately welcomed into the "empower community." They are supportive, caring and have had a wonderful, healthy & happy effect on my mother's life. I can't thank them enough. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
hidden gem!. This place is the ultimate in personal attention. Staff is friendly, knowledgeable and membership costs are very reasonable. Hours and classes are convenient too. My sports massage after my workout was extremely effective, probably the best one I've had in ages!
Great personal attention and affordable!.
I stumbled upon Empower Fitness when I was looking for good and affordable yoga classes. I found that and more. The atmosphere here is really mellow and it's never crowded so it makes working out fun and unintimidating. The staff is great and Troy offers small group coaching sessions as an introduction to the equipment and to create a personalized workout regimen. Since I'm not very gym savvy this was a big plus for me. He's always happy to answer questions and to help me with my form when I ask.
The yoga classes are wonderful. Sean is a terrific teacher and since the classes are so small he is always willing to cater to the wishes of the class. It's like having a personal yoga instructor.
Being a college student I figured that a gym membership was a luxury I would have to forgo but they offer some really good student rates and it's definitely worth it for all of the personal attention.
Really cool place to workout!. Empower is a really laid-back place to workout or take some classes. The basketball game was on last night during my coaching session, so Troy turned it on over the stereo system so I wouldn't miss it! It made working out SO much easier! I'm really looking forward to the Yoga and Health Retreat. I've never tried yoga before, so this will be a great introduction.
Quick and Motivating Workouts. I just joined Empower because of its proximity to work - and they offered a locals discount. I'm impressed with how quickly I can get through my workouts because all the equipment I need is right next to me when I need it. The free group coaching was a great motivator to get me on the right track too.
Great place to actually EXERCISE. Great place if you actually want to exercise without needing to primp beforehand! Everything is pretty private (cardio, lifting equipment, private shower) and classes are kept small on purpose. GREAT TRAINERS! I'm excited to see the expansion coming soon!
