Paul CollinsOwner
Paul Collins is the owner and founder of Peak Condition. Paul helps clients from all walks of life achieve their physique and sports performance goals. He received his Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science from Linfield College. As a student athlete, he conducted independent research for sports performance through deep water running, which aided in its prescription for recovering or rehabbing athletes. This fascination led to becoming a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
Gabe Rodriguez
Gabe RodriguezStrength Coach
Gabe Rodriguez was born to young, dynamic, and athletic parents; he has been participating in outdoor physical activity and athletics since the age of 5. Twenty plus years of experience — including Division 1 collegiate athletics — engaging in and excelling at physical activity has planted in him a desire to professionally coach, and teach human movement, fitness development, and athletic performance.

Drawing from his experiences at the University of Portland, the University of Washington, and Elemental Fitness Lab, Gabe is driven to share with others a physical development pathway that provides them a foundation that empowers them to improve their lives.

James Geiring
James GeiringStrength Coach
When James Giering was in high school, his plan was to be a professional skim boarder. That plan may not have panned out, but exciting sports like that still have a draw for him. Over the years he’s picked up surfing and—more recently—rock climbing, and continues to look for all sorts of outdoors adventures he can go on.

One way that former U.S. Government analyst James finds his joy is in reaching his maximum potential, then giving it a little push, just to see if it can’t go any further. He started training because he wanted to spread that joy to others. These days he is working for Nike while he pursues a Master’s program in Exercise Science. His passion and drive are infectious, and we invite you to get swept up in it.

Grant Runyan
Grant RunyanOffice Manager, Marketing Director
Grant Runyan is the Office Manager and Marketing Director at Peak Condition. As a Portlander native, he grew up a little more than one mile from where the facility now stands. Although he has had successful runs with track and ultimate disk — and has always been an avid skier — these days Grant’s main active activity is bouldering. He finds joy in its capacity for elegant, zen-like movement.

Grant organizes Peak Condition’s training schedule, develops relationships with other like minded companies, and works on numerous projects to make the facility run and grow as smoothly as possible. His commitment to customer service can be seen day in and day out as he interacts closely with clients from all ages and athletic backgrounds.

Paul Collins Sports Strength Training
Yes. Peak Condition is not a membership based gym. You will always be working with one of our strength and conditioning coaches when you are in the facility, and we promise keep the client to coach ratio at or below 5:1 at all times. Those slots can fill up fast, so it is important to schedule in advance.
To keep a focused training environment at all times, we do not offer memberships that allow you to drop in at any time. Instead, we offer scheduled training times that ensure you get the attention you deserve when you are in the facility, and a training environment that ignites results. We wish we could train everybody at any time, but we will not compromise the quality of your training to do it.
Fitness Fundamentals is designed for you if you are just getting into strength training, or are beginning again. Fitness Fundamentals provides the same training experience but does not include additional training tools that will eventually be vital for continued success.

Athletic Development Program is for you if you have been training consistently for more than 1 year. To ensure continued results, we make use of more technical data during your training sessions (provided by the heart rate monitor), and better recovery strategies.

Elite Development Program adds a 30 min sports massage to facilitate recovery.

We implement a group supervision format here at Peak Condition. As a result, you will have the chance to interact with our entire staff of strength coaches during a typical training session. We make sure to introduce you to all of our staff members during the Facility Introduction to ensure that you are always comfortable and confident in the facility.
Each training session will be slightly different from athlete to athlete and from day to day depending on personal goals, training experience, injury history and mobility/stability (information covered in the assessment). However, each of your sessions will start off with a personalized Tissue Quality program and Dynamic Warm-Up. Those are quickly followed by Skill Drills, where selected movement patterns are practiced to improve future training sessions. The bulk of your time will be devoted to Strength and Condition, which is highly variable and based on information from the initial assessment and your continued training progress.
Most of our training is during the following hours, but other times are available:
5:30 AM – 12:00 PM : Monday
6:00 AM – 12:00 PM : Tuesday
6:30 AM – 12:00 PM : Wednesday
6:00 AM – 12:00 PM : Thursday
6:30 AM – 12:00 PM : Friday
Yes. As long as you let us know what sort of equipment you have access to outside of our facility, we can prepare material to be completed at a gym closer to home. We are unable to email programs to you prior to walking you through the new training material in-person at Peak Condition.
While your sessions are designed to be completed in roughly an hour, we encourage you to budget 75-minutes to complete your training. If you have requested training materials to be completed outside of our facility, your first session on a new program will require 90-100 minutes to complete your training for that day and thoroughly walk through additional content.
All important events or closures will be sent to you via e-mail.
