Meet the coaches

Autumn Grover


I’m a midwest transplant who chose Oregon as my home because of its natural beauty and strong sense of community. I am a Registered Nurse, Certified Personal Trainer, and Nutrition coach. With 10 years of experience working in hospitals I've learned my true passion is helping people create lifestyle changes in an effort to live healthier and more fulfilling lives. I enjoy all things outdoors - camping, backpacking, boating, hiking, climbing mountains, etc. When I’m not at Stronger or doing Nurse work, you’ll likely find me with my family, whom I am incredibly grateful for!

CF-L1 Certified Coach

I found my passion for fitness while in high school through participation in various sports and activities. It was not until 2015 that I discovered functional training and developed a passion for fitness. As a coach at Stronger, I enjoy helping people move better and find an active lifestyle that brings them better health. I am here to help you reach all your goals and then some!

Mario Oliveras

Group Training Coach

My name is Mario and I am a native of the PNW, I became passionate about training after spending years as an athlete even leading me to a college football career at Eastern Oregon University. After suffering a substantial knee injury, I began to learn the importance of intricate techniques for lifting, stretching and rehabilitation resulting in a better well rounded athlete. I enjoy working with folks who are passionate about learning and bettering their lives while incorporating fun in doing so. Encouraging whole body care is also a strong passion of mine. Lifting has taught me to live in the present and disconnect from all outside stressors, allowing full focus on what I have control of: what’s right in front of me. In my spare time, I enjoy hanging outside with my two sons, my wife and our dog.


trina visscher

Registered Yoga Teacher

I attended my first yoga class in 2008, where it quickly became my safe space from the busy world, transforming both my mind and body. In 2017 I enrolled in Yoga Teacher Training to deepen my own practice. It was during that time that I realized I wanted to share what I was learning with others and began teaching classes at local gyms and corporate businesses. Since then, I have furthered her training, which now includes Prenatal Yoga.

I approach yoga through balance, strength, flexibility, and mindfulness. My classes focus on Vinyasa Flow, where you can expect to move, sweat, and breathe,. Hope to see you on the mat!
