Personal Training with

Evan at Fit-InMotion 

What do personal training sessions consist of? Typically sessions are on a one-on-one basis but buddy sessions (up to two clients) is also doable! I charge 65 dollars an hour for single sessions and 85 dollars an hour for buddy sessions. In that time my client(s) are guided through a pre-planned workout that is tailored specificity to their needs, with the purpose of accomplishing their goals. In addition to weight training and cardiovascular exercise, I combine mobility/corrective exercises into my workouts, aiding in longevity and injury prevention. The time we spend together is apart of a bigger whole.

With Guidance from written workouts that I provide and taking what you’ve learned from our time together, I push all my clients to follow a training program outside of our sessions together. I think it is so important for everyone to be able to workout on their own. Being able to work through an exercise program independently brings a new kind of confidence and knowledge, which increases the chance of success in sticking with it long term.

Although Fit-InMotion Personal Training is my business, I operate out Vive Fitness. Vive Fitness is a small gym set up for personal trainers and their clients. We are a collection of private contractors. The address for the gym is 4023 Ne Hancock St, Portland, OR 97212. Because of complications with Google (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!

My Format

Although every session varies, depending on each client’s specific needs, there is a format that I typically follow.

Foam rolling (myofascial release)/dynamic warm up

I start out each session with some kind of dynamic warm-up and or myofascial release. This step is an important step in releasing trigger points and preventing injury.

Cardiovascular/mobility warm up

Warming up the body through a cardiovascular and or mobility exercise is step two. Example: row machine, arm circles, stationary bike, ladder drills etc.

The Workout

Following the warm-up, the real workout begins! I typically set my workouts up into circuits (two to four exercises executed in sequence and repeated two to three times)

Stretching/Corrective Exercises

I set at least 10 minutes aside at the end of each workout to stretch. A fitness program that does not incorporate sufficient stretching is a ticking time bomb for injuries to occur.

Reasons for Personal Training


For many, the problem is a lack of motivation to start or follow through with a program. Having a fitness trainer who will help keep accountability and motivation is paramount. Having weekly scheduled workouts is ground zero for getting the ball rolling. Beyond that, having a laid out program to be followed outside of those sessions is another key to success.

Sports Specific Individualized Program

There are many who are looking for a workout program that’s tailored to increase their performance in a particular sport. A knowledgeable personal trainer can map out a comprehensive fitness program that maximizes performance and safety.

Specific Injury, Illness or Condition

People who have handicaps, such as diabetes, hip replacement(s) or an old injury that’s still is an issue could benefit from working with an experienced fitness trainer. Finding a trainer who will work with your doctor if needed to help heal injuries and prevent further problems is important.
