we're more than just a gym

Fitness isn't a one-size fits all endeavor. It's not a singular path. We're all different – from the way we wake up in the morning, to the days we lead, to the ways we enjoy moving. That's why we offer a variety of services that can be individually tailored to meet you where you're at. We don't expect you to lift above your range, exclusively consume protein, or take your body to unhealthy limits.

We do expect you to train hard, enhance the culture we've built, and laugh at Alberto's dad jokes.

Alberto Padilla

Co-Founder + Strength Coach
Poliquin International Level II Performance Specialist

I was a skinny kid who grew up in a rough neighborhood and got bullied, so fitness became my escape. I have spent most of my life in the fitness industry, learning and improving my skills on different levels. I dedicated 6 years to competitive boxing and 10 years to martial arts practice. I have received multiple certifications throughout my career, but the most notable was in 2015 when I became a certified sports performance specialist. Over the past 10 years, I have transitioned from in-person training and running a gym to working as a body transformation specialist online in order to help more people across America.

I specialize in injury prevention and science-based training methods using dumbbells and barbells through interval time periods. I help athletes level up their training and strength so they can feel and perform at their best. My in-person services and online training have not only enhance their strengths but have helped my clients develop new, non-restrictive mindsets about nutrition and exercise that's conducive to their sport and lifestyle. I like to motivate my clients by reminding them that every little bit you consistently give in your training will lead to your goals—trust the process, put in the work, and the results will come.

When I’m not coaching clients, working on my business, or boxing, I love spending time chasing my son around and exploring the beautiful Northwest with my family.

Girls Gone Strong Certified Coach


I grew up relatively active, climbing trees & fences , doing sports here & there. My main love was acrobatics, until I injured my knee. It wasn't until my 20s that I got back into exercise, but for all the wrong reasons, to be small & skinny. Fortunately, I found strength training & realized my passion for strength!

I love all aspects of healthy living, from growing my own food, to studying biology and chemistry. I actually have a Master's of Science in Chemistry from Northwestern because I thought I wanted to heal the environment through green chemistry.

Although, I don't do chemistry anymore, I have a love for science, data and analysis, which I bring in to my coaching & training methodology.

I am on a mission to get weights in to every woman's hands. To help women embrace their strength physically & discover how it can not only transform their body but their mind!

I've realized after years of experience that restricting calories and cardio-style training wasn't effective in the long run - if anything, it detracts from our health. I coach every client how to eat more & to fuel their body, not beat it down.

WHAT IT'S LIKE TO WORK WITH US...

I’ve been training with Alberto for a couple of years now. I was coming off a serious medical setback and looking to regain my strength and sense of control over my body and health.  Alberto’s been amazing at helping me work around various health issues while continuing to get stronger and keeping me motivated.  I never thought I’d be able to 1/3 of the things we’ve done together - he’s encouraging and knowledgeable, listens incredibly well, all while pushing you to achieve your personal best.  He’s just an awesome trainer and an awesome person!

Larissa Fransen

Alberto is an excellent trainer. He is super knowledgeable, takes the time to listen, and is encouraging and motivating. His sessions are fun and challenging, and I have noticed significant results from his workouts. He has helped me get strong after a nagging running injury, and I have learned how to work out with heavy weights in a way that is safe and effective for my body and my long term fitness goals. He's the best!

Bri P.

I have been training with Alberto for over a year now, and my experience has been a wonderful one. I went to him not really knowing what I wanted out of going to the gym. I just knew I was getting bored with my routine, and was needing to switch things up! Since then I have developed a better understanding of lifting and how to have good form. A great perk, of course, is getting/feeling stronger!I highly recommend Alberto to anyone who is in need of a trainer who cares, and knows exactly what he's doing and why! :)

Erica Ellingsen

Because of training with Alberto, I have seen significant improvements in my physical health and strength. Before I started training with him I had little to no muscle definition and now regularly get complimented on looking fit. Alberto is amazing at knowing how to push you in your ability range and by push, I mean nothing but positive reinforcement. He's a great listener, motivator, and is always considerate of how you are feeling each day you walk into the gym and trains accordingly. When I first started seeing Alberto I lived close to our gym. I have since moved further and but have no interest in changing to a closer gym because of how much I enjoy working with him.

Deborah

Since I have been working with Alberto, my life has changed tremendously! I was looking for a personal trainer whose philosophy centered on a holistic approach to health: body, mind and spirit. Alberto's holistic approach informs his individualize strength training programs. He is attentive to form, technic, and possesses the wisdom to know when I am at my limit, and even then he challenges me to go a little bit further. Awesome! I don't try give excuses because he holds me accountable for my success.  I enjoy working with Alberto so much that I have moved from twice a week to four days a week.  If your goal is to get healthy, strong, and you want it bad enough, join the Strength Society!
