A new trainer in Arlington

Casey Gallagher is ready to help anyone who wants to build up their strength for any reason.

ARLINGTON — Casey Gallagher is ready to help anyone who wants to build up their strength for any reason.

Gallagher has been doing sports performance training since 1998, and he now has a training space next door to Arlington Physical Therapy.

“I work with patients from next door who want to follow up with their therapy, but I’m also offering my services to athletes, and anyone else who wants to build their strength,” Gallagher said.

“So far, I’ve got a 50-50 split of clients who are athletes, and those who just want to work out for fitness,” said the former wrestling coach at Portland State.

Three years ago he opened a sports performance center in Lynnwood and now he is moving north again, working with Integrated Rehabilitation Group since February this year.

“Shannon approached me about a year ago to come here,” Gallagher said.

His program for athletes is a bit more challenging than the fitness program, he said, depending on the sport. He works on speed, agility, strength and power. The program for athletes takes 90 minutes while a fitness work out is just 60 minutes, he said.

“All sports have the same core needs,” said Gallagher, who has worked with soccer, softball and tennis players, among others.

He strives to help clients build lower and upper body strength and a strong heart.

He uses all kinds of interesting equipment, from very big old tires to kettle balls and dumb bells.

Along with lifting weights, his program includes jogging from 15 to 45 minutes.

“I will add more equipment as time goes by,” Gallagher said.

His space features lots of windows looking out on a tree-lined creek, but he hasn’t considered any mellow activities like yoga.

“I could use this space for a variety of things,” he admitted.

At this time, he is a “one-man band” but hopes to get busy enough to hire people in the future.

He offers flexible hours to accommodate his clients, although he’d rather fill his weekdays before offering Saturdays and Sundays.

Next door, the clinic director at Arlington Physical Therapy, Dawn Bostic said it’s a very useful partnership.

“Some of our patients who want to continue with rehab after being treated for injuries go next door to Casey,” Bostic said.
