Arryn Grogan

Arryn is a StrongFirst Elite instructor and coaches strength, kickboxing, group classes and 1:1. He started practicing with kettlebells as a way to improve his martial arts training but found he loved the strength world so much he wanted to start teaching others how to get stronger, too. Arryn’s favorite exercises are bent presses, (HEAVY) kettlebell snatches, and Zercher squats. When he’s not in the gym you can find him eating cookies with milk, listening to classic country music, and hanging out with his dog Shelby.

Christina Carcilazo

Christina’s journey in personal training began in 2015 after she had suffered a neck injury in a car accident. After a couple of years of continuous pain and no form of therapy to help with pain, Christina began to gain interest in human anatomy and functional movement.

After her fitness began to regress, she decided she didn’t want others to feel like they couldn’t exercise because of an injury. She believes that foam rolling, stretching, and an appropriate warm-up are rituals that should be incorporated into every workout program. Christina is excited to empower individuals to feel confident in a gym and push clients to find and reach their full potential.

Her hobbies include hiking Oregon waterfalls with her dog Jetta, watching basketball, and hunting down Portland’s best bubble tea.

Shiloe Allison

Shiloe is passionate about performance over an aesthetics approach to fitness, taking priority of moving well, inside and outside the gym. She believes if you focus on increasing what you can do and what you can achieve over how you look, that aesthetics will follow close behind. Consistency is quite possibly the most key component of fitness, so her goal is to understand what your incentives are and make a fitness routine as approachable and as FUN as possible.

If you don’t find Shiloe in the gym, she’s probably hanging out with her dog and with friends; camping, hiking, and eating! Shiloe is excited about helping people of all age ranges and fitness levels to achieve a more well-rounded fitness.
