We’ve created an experience that is stronger than a gym!
ABOUT West Coast Strength
When we opened a gym in Salem, Oregon, we knew it had to be different.
It’s easy to see that most gyms are the same, but when you step into West Coast Strength, you know it’s unique. In an industry saturated with generic gyms and franchised fitness centers, we stand out in every way. The equipment, facility, design, staffing, and membership experience make our gym unique and a head above the competition. WCS is stronger than a gym; it is a community and a family.
What is our priority? Helping you become the best possible you, plain and simple. In helping others, we’ve promised to continually evolve our business to serve our members better. While we aim to remove the unnecessary fluff from our gym, we double down on our strengths to provide a premium product for people who want and need the real deal.
Our obsession with being the best is no secret. We want our members to know they belong to the gym with the best equipment, facility, staff, and service!
Everything a gym should be and more
Our experience and passion for fitness led us to create and design one of the most unique gyms in the country.
We’ve handpicked the best equipment and combined that with a positive culture that inspires growth and change.
Not all fitness equipment is created equal; take it from the professionals; the equipment we use has outperformed every other brand in the market for decades.
From our Founder Alex Whitaker: In the past, I’ve regularly jumped from gym to gym to use the right equipment. When opening this gym, I wanted one facility with all the right equipment in the right places. Even the equipment layout is designed specifically to maximize your return on effort and ensure the best results.

MEET THE Founder
In another life, I was the Head Strength & Conditioning Coach at Western Oregon University. I’ve coached some of the world’s top competitive athletes and bodybuilders, and I’ve been coaching since 2007. My clientele has ranged from collegiate, professional, Olympic level athletes, and…your mom?
Yep, that’s right! Although I specialize in working with advanced athletes, a majority of clients that I’ve worked with are everyday people who just wanted to make a serious change. I’ve been fortunate to have great clients that turn into great friends, and we produce incredible results together.
I know that each one of us has a unique story with unique challenges. As a coach and a gym owner, I want to provide people with a service that meets their needs and exceeds all expectations.
At West Coast Strength, for me, it was about creating an experience that is stronger than a gym. People ask me what that means all the time. My short answer is, “come see for yourself.” It’s not about the members, it’s not about the best equipment, it’s not about the best people, the music, or even the vibe, but it’s also about all those things. I’m so proud of our unique experience, and I’m confident you will love it.
