Clackamas and Happy Valley's #1 go to Premier Personal Training Gym

Clackamas and Happy Valley's #1 go to Premier Personal Training Gym Voted Best Personal Trainer of Happy Valley 2024

We are a private one-on-one training facility.

Not available for open gym membership

If you’re serious about results, don’t waste your time and money with the part-time inexperienced corporate franchise trainer. You wouldn’t trust the part-time dentist you bought time with on a flash sale, would you?

Voted Clackamas County's #1 Personal Training Gym

Personal training

Hi, I’m Ryan Achenbach, I’m a personal trainer serving in Portland, Milwaukie, Oregon City, Clackamas, Gresham and Happy Valley. I am a certified drug free state and national  powerlifting record holder.  In additional, I’ve been a personal trainer for over 15 years and have serviced over 16,000 personal training sessions. It is our goal to put the client and their needs first without the impersonal gym intimidation. We strive to make sure you have personal training.

What we offer at Valley Strength is individualized Fat-loss, strength, bodybuilding, powerlifting, and fitness coaching for everyone. Drawing from our knowledge and extensive experience as coaches and athletes, we will work closely with you to help you achieve your goals and reach your fullest potential.

Is this gym right for me?

Most people who come to us want to improve their fitness, strength, and physique not for a bodybuilding or powerlifting stage, but for their everyday life. If you want to improve the quality of your life through science-driven training, diet, coaching, this is the right gym for you.


Our mission is to give the community an opportunity to train and achieve their desired goals in a comfortable private setting with highly experienced trainers. Not brand-new trainers looking to gain experience practicing with you as their client. 

Our ideal client(s) is anyone with a positive attitude, and a willingness to work hard. That’s really it. Our goal is to give you the best personal training to achieve your goals.

We have the demonstrated experience providing our clients the expertise and inspiration to achieve their desired results.

We train professional athletes looking for specific results as well as casual athletes and those with zero experience seeking to jump into a fitness routine.  We also have experience with special needs clients to help them improve their lives with stronger more capable bodies.

Voted #1 in Happy Valley

There's a ton of false advertising from celebs and trainers in the fitness industry. I see it locally around me with trainers up the road in Clackamas/Happy Valley. A lot of celebs and trainers are on steroids or TRT. Male and Female. I can't promise I'll get you to a cover model on a magazine, but I can promise I'll not bullshitting you with routines and diets that won't work for the average person.
