Hello, I’m Jocelyn, your new coach and owner of PDXstrength!
I have had the opportunity to help athletes achieve their personal best, improve their health and attain their goals for 20 years, (time flies when you do what you love!). 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.
In 1996 I was named the Athlete of the Year by USA Triathlon as well as being the Junior Female National Triathlon champion. I represented the USA by competing in the World Duathlon and World Triathlon Championships, and was fortunate to experience world class training at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado.
My most recent endeavors have been training for local fitness competitions, gymnastics, running, Olympic weightlifting, skateboarding, and ping pong! I love sharing my passion for health and fitness with my athletes and students. I’m currently studying for my CSCS, and I am convinced that we should never stop learning! Choosing a coach is a big decision, and with every year I have been in this business, I sincerely believe you want a coach that has had many years of coaching behind their belt. I learn from every client, and make it a priority to continue my education through workshops, reading, classes, certifications and time in the gym. I believe exercise should be fun, challenging, motivating, inspiring and part of our everyday lives. Strength is freedom, and health is priceless. I want everyone to find their inner athlete and live a strong, healthy and happy life!
