About Me

Hi there! I'm Jonathan Gomez, and I was born and raised in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles, California. Growing up, baseball was my biggest childhood passion and kindled my love for fitness and pursuing a healthy lifestyle.

 

I moved to Portland in 2012 to pursue a degree in Political Science at Portland State University, and began lifting seriously to prepare for baseball season. I found that the hour and a half I spent in the gym quickly became my favorite part of each day. Not only did it give me immediate boosts in energy and confidence, but it also drastically improved my mental health and ability to handle stress.

 

After graduation, I began working in campaign finance, and realized that my desk job wasn't fulfilling to me- I simply felt incomplete without a daily focus on fitness. So, I took a leap of faith and decided to pursue my passion full time. I began training even more and pursued my ISSA certification to began sharing my love and lifestyle with others.

As an ISSA certified personal trainer and nutritionist, my goal is to inspire my clients to become the best versions of themselves by ensuring that their individual needs and goals are met each day. Every client faces different challenges in their fitness journey, whether that means working through a knee replacement, living with diabetes, suffering from lower back pain, or even lacking that motivation to get active.

 

Together, we will work together to address any or all of these issues and create a plan that will embody a lifelong, healthier you!
