Our Story

DebandJames.jpg
So how does a place like this come to life? In this case, it began when a personal trainer (co-owner James Hollenkamp) sought yoga classes to balance his interval-training regimen, and a yoga teacher (co-owner Debbie Duryee) sought boot camp classes to increase her strength and cardio. A friendship formed. But the wheels really started spinning when Debbie began personal training sessions with James. In the many hours together perfecting squats and bicep curls, they discovered they shared the dream of opening their own studio. Recognizing how much they respected each other's areas of expertise, they knew they wanted to create a place that celebrated a medley of fitness options. They are passionate about teaching, learning, and how varied fitness impacts wellness. They can't wait to share this enthusiasm with you! 

About Crisp

What Sets Us Apart
Crisp is unlike any other class-based facility in Greater Portland. We offer convenience, an inviting ambiance, and unparalleled diversity in fitness options: heated vinyasa yoga, boot camp, cycling, personal training, and fusion classes. With all of the best workouts under one roof, you'll spend more time enjoying your workouts and less time frenetically traveling from place to place. 

Crisp Classes Pass
The purchase of a Crisp Classes pass — either a 10-class or 20-class option — can be used interchangeably for ANY classes we offer. If you take a second class on the same day, it is half price. Yes, you read that correctly: If you want to take a yoga class after your boot camp class, the yoga class is half price. Oh yeah!

Fusion Classes
Crisp uniquely offers 90-minute fusion classes that combine different genres of fitness: a boot camp-yoga fusion (45 minutes of boot camp followed by 45 minutes of yoga) and a cycling-yoga fusion (45 minutes of cycling followed by 45 minutes of yoga). These fusion classes only count as a single class on your Crisp pass. What a deal!
