PDXstrength started as an outdoor bootcamp in Cathedral park. I saw a gap that needed to be filled, and wanted to build a class based fitness studio that provided a place to build health relationships with our bodies and fitness. I never in a million years thought I could start a gym, but as the cold weather approached every fall, our participants begged to find a warm indoor space to keep the party going! Established in 2012, PDXStrength has quickly become one of the top rated gyms in Portland, OR! PDXstrength is woman owned small business that’s an inclusive and safe space for the St. Johns community to workout. We strive to deliver only the best to our clients in terms of Classes, Fitness, Nutritional Advice and of course a fun experience! PDXstrength is a positive and welcoming community. You don’t have to be a “jock” to get in shape!  We are an anti- diet culture gym that believes fitness is for EVERYBODY! Come join us, learn, get swole, socialize and have a blast!

Client Testimonials

“Best workout ever! The classes are challenging and fun. Jocelyn & Laura are awesome. They are inspiring, personable and friendly. The boot camp classes have a good mix of cardio, strength and focus on form. Convenient location and a recommendation from a neighbor first brought me to Jocelyn’s classes and now I’m hooked!”

It’s a fun, welcoming community who will not only challenge and motivate you, but will celebrate your accomplishments! When I first started going to Jocelyn’s bootcamps, I never thought of myself as an athlete, but Joceyln’s effective and fun workouts will change the way you think of yourself and fitness! I am a busy mom of 3 small children with limited free time, and although PDX Strength is across town…I am more than happy to make the drive. It’s addictive in that way! And…did I mention it’s FUN! Run…don’t walk to PDX Strength!”
