Our Story

We created a completely unique gym with programs, knowledge, and support to be your best.

What started off in 2011 as a nutrition store in Monmouth, Oregon, grew into a training studio, and from there, smoke led to a fire and we’ve been growing ever since!

Now an active part of the Salem, Oregon community, our gym West Coast Strength is here to provide a facility for anyone looking to start or further their fitness journey. At our gym, we make each other better by cultivating a positive culture and workout community. This is a place where you can connect with skilled trainers as well as loyal members with similar goals.

Locally owned and operated by Alex Whitaker, West Coast Strength (WCS) over the last 11 years has become one of the most well-known private coaching and training brands in the country. We’ve extended that reputation by becoming Salem’s #1 gym and one of Oregon’s best gyms.

We patiently hunted for the perfect location, and now we’re here!  At WCS our members have access to an incredible facility, environment, and culture.  As a business we believe in continual growth alongside our members, which is why we’re constantly adding new equipment and ensuring that our services programs are unmatched. A beautiful facility that is spotless and well maintained, we truly care about about our business and its members.

We operate our gym with a collaboration of education, experience, and genuine love for what we do.
