Jeremy is a Starting Strength Coach and owner of Toolshed Training, a home gym in Portland, Oregon. From 2017 – 2020, Jeremy trained and coached at Next Level Barbell with the owner and head coach, Jordan Stanton. After receiving his SSC, Jeremy began coaching for Barbell Logic and completed a Precision Nutrition Level 1 certification.
Jeremy brings with him a long and varied athletic career. He has been a competitive x-country skier and mountain biker and enjoys hiking, winter sports, and road cycling. As a younger man, a rock slide caused serious injury to Jeremy’s leg, upending his life, and challenging his capacity to enjoy the sports he loved. It was through these trials that Jeremy discovered strength training as a means of rehabilitating his injuries, staying healthy, and pushing his abilities.
Originally from Canada, Jeremy studied Geography and Geographic Information Systems at the University of British Columbia and later worked as a GIS consultant. Jeremy has traveled to a few interesting places and has a couple of good stories. He enjoys good coffee, good food, spending time with his wife, their dog, and their cat, and of course, lifting weights.
Jeremy is eager to help others overcome their own hurdles while guiding them towards stronger and more empowered lives.
