Evan Zener

I am a professional ACE certified fitness trainer, located in Northeast Portland, Oregon. I’ve worked in the industry for 5 years as an independent contractor at a local gym Vive Fitness, operating under my business Fit-InMotion Personal Training. Vive is a fitness studio dedicated to personal trainers and their clients. The address for Vive Fitness is 4023 Ne Hancock St, Portland, OR 97212. Because of complications with Google maps (Google not allowing multiple businesses claim the same address), I had to claim my Google maps listing outside of the actual gym. Sorry for the confusion!

As a fitness trainer, I help my clients accomplish their goals while keeping them safe from injury. I believe in working hard and making progress but doing it in a way that makes it benefit you twenty, thirty, forty years down the road rather than getting you injured. I think it’s important for everyone to figure out what they like in fitness/exercise and go after it. I believe the key to success is enjoying it. Not many people stick with something long-term that they don’t enjoy and I haven’t met anyone who was in shape and healthy who didn’t enjoy what they practiced to get there. So I think it is really important to find what you like to do, in and outside the gym. It’s my job to create new, fun, challenging workouts that keep my clients engaged and moving forward and at the same time pushing them to follow a routine outside of our time together. I do a lot of work building and sharing prescribed exercise programs for clients through Google Drive and I encourage everyone one of my clients to take part in! 

For me, exercise has been a life-changing tool for over fourteen years. I always had my eye on building strength and becoming more athletic, but the gym has been more than just a place to workout. It’s where I’ve gone to cope with stress, gain confidence, and become the healthiest version of myself both mentally and physically. It’s allowed me to grow into the person and fitness trainer that I am today. I believe as we get stronger in the gym, we get stronger in all aspects of our lives. I see the power of exercise working in myself and my clients every day. I’ve seen it from the day I started working out and it’s the reason I’m here now, to help people.

I am a native Portlander. Growing up with the Cascades and the Oregon Coast out my back door fueled my love for many outdoor activities. I am a mountaineer, cyclist, scuba diver and a fly fisherman. Skydiving and exploring new areas to camp are also big on my list. I have a 3-year-old Boxer/Lab mix named Charley!! He is such a good boy. He is as handsome as he is well behaved and loving. Having him has been such an amazing experience. He LOVES swimming, playing with sticks, getting his butt scratched AND chasing squirrels. He hasn’t caught one yet but he’s not giving up!!!
