James GeiringStrength Coach
James Giering considers himself to be a lifelong athlete and an unceasing student of human movement. His parents encouraged him to be well rounded and introduced him to many forms of athletics at a young age to balance out his studies. James’ primary sports were swimming and water polo, and his successful athletic career continued through his time at Linfield College. Although his initial career was in international economics, it provided him the opportunity to work for both Nike here in Oregon and the Federal Government in Washington D.C. However, after having undergone multiple arthroscopic surgeries, a passion was ignited that lead James to change careers. He is currently back in school pursuing is Master’s degree in Exercise and Sports Science, where his focus includes rehabilitation for arthroscopic surgeries and training for special populations.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Portland Athletic Training Facility
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.
