“I’ve been going to The Trainer for a short time and am already seeing improvement. He truly motivates me, and his knowledge of the body gives me great confidence that I am being trained effectively and safely. Despite the challenging workouts he dishes out, the hour goes by so quickly because he’s really fun and is constantly teaching me things about fitness and my body. I never thought I’d “workout” randomly throughout the day, but as  he says, you can exercise anywhere. I jump up escalators and stairs, do ab crunches on the chainlink fence at work, etc. I have a whole new outlook. Thanks!” Landa John.

I’ve been working with Rick for 7 years. He has nurtured and encouraged me through several injuries. I’m positive I would have given up without his diligence, encouragement, kindness and vast array of exercises, techniques and creative ideas. I am a much better person for having Rick as my trainer and friend these last 7 years.
I encourage anyone who is thinking they want to be healthier to hop on Rick’s team. He won’t let you down, and he won’t let YOU let yourself down! He cares not just about the physical person, but the whole person… mentally, physically… the whole package! There simply isn’t anyone like Rick.

How to become a member of The Trainer’s Dream Team. (Become a client)
Fill out form below or call 541-490-8717

* Be sure to check out my other pages as well for a lot more information!

1- schedule a 1 hour FREE consultation to determine if you and I are a good fit. We will discuss your goals and how “we” can work together to achieve them. Please bring plenty of questions. I was an RN in CCU for15 years and stopped so I could help folks with their health before they had to see nurses in the hospital like myself! So health questions are great to ask as well! This is a “discussion ” only session.

2- sign a contract for 3 months once a week (all sessions are a full hour in length). See rates below. Everyone starts out with only once or twice a week for the first 12 weeks but after that you may sign up for as many times as you wish! This is for you! I have found over the past many years that if someone starts out doing “too much too fast” then their future fitness endeavors suffer. That is not what I want for you!

3- show up with plenty of passion and a great desire to have fun achieving the goals “you” have set for yourself! Be prepared for training different than you have ever experienced in your past! Oh, also get ready to have fun!

Rates: one session $60.00

*3 month contract $38.00/session (this is what all new clients start with. After 3 months they may re-sign with any of contracts offered) As of writing this, the least expensive “one on one” training elsewhere in the Columbia River Gorge was $48.00/session. As far as their qualifications? I’ll let you check that out. Thanks, The Trainer @54

*6 month contract $36.00/session


*** 3 & 6 month contracts get a [5% discount] if paid in full at signing.You may choose to pay equal monthly payments but do not get the discount.


• Every session client will get a health & fitness multiple choice question worth $2.00 gift certificate that you may turn in when you renew.

• at resigning, 3 & 6 month contracts get a $25.00 health and fitness multiple choice question.

• everyone designated as “Athlete of the Month” gets a $50.00 gift certificate

• all current clients that refers me a person that signs up for a 3 month contract will get a $50.00 gift certificate!

Rick is an amazing human being. Although I have only really met him a few times both my teenagers (a son and daughter) have worked with him quite a bit. He is enormously kind, enthusiastic, professional and caring. My son really learned a lot from him about health and fitness. Rick was a great friend to him as well by encouraging him and talking to him about his interests and his problems. He was not just a fitness teacher, but he really took an interest in my son’s life. My son worked with him for about a year and really just got to a point where he had other things (like work) going on. Otherwise he would still be working with him.
My daughter is a ballerina and has had major issues with pain in her knees. She had done physical therapy, acupuncture as well as chiropractic. Her main issue was strength in her legs and Rick was really great working with her on it. In fact, his help garnered more results than anything else. His workouts are custom to the client and he would do things that she hadn’t done in physical therapy. She worked with Rick for 6 weeks and felt a lot better.
Rick makes things fun for the younger people by teaching them how their body works and how to take care of themselves. You can tell he gets a lot of joy out of helping people. He is truly passionate about his work and it shows. I would recommend him wholeheartedly and without any reservation. He’s amazing!

Rick Dant of InsideOut Fitness is a fantastic Personal Trainer, a dedicated and personable professional with over 30 years of experience. He helps others become the individuals they were meant to and NEED to be! I have been training with Rick for about 8 months now, and I have made so much progress in so many areas (weight loss, endurance, general health and wellness, toning, muscle mass, etc) I could go on forever.
Rick is “The Trainer” of the Columbia Gorge area of Washington and Oregon for a reason. He loves what he does, he “Walks the Walk” and he’s just really good at it!
Take advantage of the rare opportunity to rely on a trainer who is not only an RN, but has certifications and training in multiple disciplines.
InsideOutFitness has helped me reclaim my life! That is a fact! Look at Rick’s comprehensive Website, Youtube Channel and Facebook page. The results of him helping others get fit is shown in healthier bodies and smiling faces!
Do yourself and your loved ones a favor; call or e-mail Rick, and sit down with him for a free, “no hassles” (really!) 1 hour consultation.
If you can do your part, Rick will invariably do his part!
It doesn’t need to be New Year’s Day to really commit to a better and healthier path. Become lighter, healthier, stronger, happier and more fully engaged with living life, not just putting up with it or dreading the next day. Rick will introduce you to so many ways of exercising and so much varied equipment that you will never get bored!
Guys, if you could get fit and maintain it on your own you would have already done it. That’s the bottom line. I don’t mean to sound harsh but there is no miracle in a bottle, or book of hidden wisdom that will enable you to not put in the effort. Make your health, fitness and happiness a priority so that you have the energy, skills and outlook to help others!
Sit down with Rick at The Trainer’s Table and do what it takes to become a part of Rick’s Dream Team.
You won’t regret it.


“Great training and education! Always giving and concerned about you and reaching your goals. The Trainer has a positive attitude and helps you stay on track. I go once a week and can tell a big difference! I’ve improved my running time and am amazed at how much stronger I feel. I Haven’t ever had these results going to a gym!” Lynda Esaacson


“The Trainer really does know everything about functional training and he does have the most functional training equipment!” Ingrid Deleon

I’ve been working out with Rick for over 4 years. He really knows his stuff and always has something new to do. I’m so much stronger and healthier thanks to all the workouts. I have some serious joint issues and Rick is always able to come up with a different exercise that I can do when one bothers my joints. I can do things I never thought I would be able to do so I’m really happy with the results. I’ve been to tons of physical therapists and none have reduced or eliminated a lot of the pain that I had for years. If something starts bothering me again I just tell Rick and he gives me some exercises to do and that usually helps it to get better. Trust me it is worth every penny, sign up today you won’t regret it. 🙂
