November Updates

Greetings  Strength Tribe!

Thanks to everyone that came out to our Puerto Rico Fundraiser. We raised over $400 dollars and had a blast working out!  Also big thanks to volunteers and participants of the Night of the Living Deadlift party. The night was a success! Tim and Jackie put on an excellent event and we can’t wait for their next power lifting party.
We are looking forward to having a great holiday season with our strength tribe! Lets keep smashing goals, setting new PRs and we will see you in class!

Schedule Changes

*** We have added a new bootcamp class Friday afternoons at 4:30 pm. We also will be offering Sunday evening pop up bootcamps at 5 pm in November. We have two new Group Strength and Conditioning classes on Tuesday and Thursdays at noon. Kettle bell Club is now on Wednesdays at 6:30 pm***

Track Days!

Self Defense Seminar
  • Join us on Sunday November 19, for a 2-hour personal protection class that focuses on hands-on techniques for breaking free from an attacker. This class is not meant to make you an expert at self-defense, but will introduce students to a variety of techniques for physically addressing a threat. The focus in this class is escape and survival, and the class will be physical. Dress for physical activity and leave your jewelry (necklaces, earrings, etc) at home. Do you have general questions about keeping you or your family safe? Email Carole at any time and/or we can discuss these topics during class. This is a class for all skill levels and ages. The class taught by career police officer Carole Boswell.  ( This class will be more hands on than our last personal protection class and is for both men and women)

    Class is $35 for two hours and $10 from each sign up will be donated to charity. Proceeds are going to Life Straw, providing safe drinking water to Puerto Rico hurricane survivors. Class will be held Sunday, November 19 at 2 pm.  Sign up here: Self Defense 

PDXstrength Toy Drive and 5th Annual Santa Hike
Join us Friday December 8th at 6:30 pm ( right after class at 5:30 pm) for our 5th Annual Santa Hike. Bring an unwrapped toy and dress up in your crazy holiday attire! We will take downtown St. Johns by storm as we do our annual bar crawl!  21 and over please!

  • Competitor Program
    We are proud to offer competitor programming for athletes that are interested in maximizing their fitness at PDXstrength. If you want more than just an hour long class, if you are interested in fitness competitions, or want guidance to improve skills and strength necessary to be pushed to your full potential, our competitive program is your answer. Our PDXstrength athletes will have the option to upgrade their membership and have exclusive access to our thoughtfully designed  Competitor Program. The cost  is $25 per month. A typical day example of the Competitor Program will include our standard strength and conditioning  “workout of the day” to ensure we keep our PDxstrength community training together, however it will also have additional strength/skill, conditioning and/or accessory work to be completed by you on the side three days a week. It’s important that all of our athletes at PDXstrength have the option for growth, and we want to give you the tools to take your fitness to the next level. Please be mindful of the normal classes going on and work around them without being a big distraction to the athletes in the class.
    You can jump into competitor training at anytime. Cost is only $25 per month.  To sign up for our competitive programming please click this link,  Competitive Programming
