Our Coaches

Jocelyn Streng

Hello, I’m Jocelyn, your new coach and owner of PDXstrength! I grew up competing and participating in a wide range of sports and obtained my B.S. in Physical Education and Health Promotion.  At University of Oregon, I was a Division I three-sport athlete, competing in track, cross country, and tennis.


Hi, I’m Nigel- the head coach at PDXstrength. A biologist by trade, I originally started CrossFit as a way to supplement skill-training in mixed martial arts. I needed to find ways to get stronger, recover from serious injuries and gain conditioning without getting hit, choked, or twisted out of joint.

Ken Hess

Hi, I’m Ken. I’ve been CrossFitting since I first heard about it back in 2006. I was apprehensive at first, as CrossFit is a huge paradigm shift from your typical gym routine, and what you read about in all the health and fitness magazines.

Mar 26  Organic? Should I Panic?

I always bring this list when I go to the grocery store. Paying for organic produce can add up.  Here's a list to help decide which produce you should buy organic, and which produce you can safely buy conventional. The following "Dirty Dozen Plus" had the highest pesticide load, making them the most important to buy organic versions - or to grow them organically yourself: Apples Peaches Nectarines Straw… Keep Reading »
