With it's state of the art training equipment along with Portland's well known Master Trainer Dakota Ushigome this will quickly become your new favorite place to go if your serious about working with a Personal Trainer. I've worked in the fitness industry for 25+ years teaching a variety of group fitness classes to others and 3 years ago when I finally decided that I wanted to work with a Personal Trainer who could take me beyond my own achievements I knew who that trainer would be. Dakota's expert Training abilities and natural gifting in this industry have built her a reputation that speaks for itself and shine's through every client that she has ever worked with. Training is an investment whether your goal is to train as a fitness competitor or to just be a stronger and better version of yourself she will get you there while having fun in the journey!:) She's the best!!!Dec 18, 2017

Dakota will definitely take you to the next level of your training! She educates you every step of the way. Best of all she will be your number 1 for accountability! I love her!May 30, 2019
Dakota transformed my body, spirit and confidence in 8 short months. She guided me through my physical transformation and helped me reach my goal of competing in my first NPC Bikini Competition and winning 1st Place in my class at 46 years old. Her expertise, knowledge and avaiability to support me through my journey was invaluable. She knew exactly what I needed to do to reach my goals and adjusted my workouts, nutrition and outlook appropriately. Can’t say enough good things about her as a coach, trainer and fitness expert.Jan 25, 2018
Dakota is the absolute best! She is extremely knowledgeable about fitness and nutrition no matter what your level! I am so lucky to be able to have her train meDec 19, 2017
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?One on One sessions are 50 minutes. Includes a monthly program with workout cards starting at packages of 5 to 52 sessions. Partner and group training available. Meal plans and check ins priced on a monthly basis.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?A consultation either in person or via phone kicks off the process. It’s important to understand my clients goals, assess a program, talk about nutrition and instruct and coach them on how to blast through their goals. Each person is uniquely different and should be treated as such. The new client interview helps both parties see if there’s a match. Every trainer has a different approach so it’s important to be able to have a dialogue around that and also see if there’s a personality match as well!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been training and coaching for over 20 years with a huge track record of success in helping people lose over 100lbs...working with physique competitors...athletes...and new gym goers.
