Kisar Dhillon

Vancouver, WA 98683

Prior to moving to Portland, Oregon, I started 1-2-1 Fitness in 2002, which was a private in-home personal training business that I successfully owned and sold in 2011. Upon selling that business, I started another personal training business called, The Art of Personal Training by Kisar Dhillon in Portland, Oregon. This was a boutique private personal training business that we successfully owned from 2012 through June of 2020. We started Burntown Fitness in November of 2017 in Vancouver, Washington 98683, and my goal was to create a group fitness program that I could incorporate the way we trainer our private personal training clients, but in a boutique group fitness setting that wasn't too packed in order to allow for quality control, great customer service and a high end value added experience. My goal was to focus completely on building the brand of Burntown Fitness and now that we have transitioned over to just one fitness business, we are excited to really put Burntown Fitness on the map.

    I have been training at The Art of Personal Training for almost a year and it is one of the best studios I have trained at in years. The owner, Kisar Dhillon, has hand picked the two of the best of trainers, Mallory Stevens and Jessica Kelly, and I have been training with both of them. The one thing that I love about this specific studio is that it is private and by appointment only! I have also noticed that there is never a lot of people in there training at one time, because this is one of the rules of this training studio, which I love! I also take pride at places I spend my money at that concentrate on giving the best customer service, and I have to say, this personal training studio delivers on that. It is high end service that is helping me get in shape, feel great and developing some great relationships.
    Thank You,
    E. A.

    I can’t say enough about Kisar both professionally and personally. He was my personal trainer for many years and I consider him to be the ultimate expert in health and fitness. He was not only an excellent trainer, but if I needed advise on a health condition, or getting special instructions for an injury, I could always count on his educated and straightforward expertise. Kisar is a fun, high-energy individual with zest for life and I will miss our times together.

    Kisar is an excellent personal trainer/ fitness coach! He truly master the art of training by getting to know the person and understanding their fitness goals. He then customizes a plan for the person (i.e. me) and follows up on a daily basis to check up on your progress! Since I love his training technique, I have also helped to promote his services among friends and family. I also worked with Kisar to work on his public relations. Kisar also loves giving back to the community by offering his services at no cost to local non-profit organization to help domestically battered women to achieve their fitness goals!

    Kisar is no longer just a personal trainer, he is a friend that cares about my physical health!

    Thanks, Kisar!

    Kisar was such pleasure to work with, even though as a Physical Trainer, my body sometimes didn’t like him very much.(lol) He has a positive attitude, pleasant personality and exudes a high level of confidence in his field of work. His training methods are strategic and very effective. My body began a transformation that I had been desiring for years. Through his clever sense of humor, he motivated me to PUSH, when I was convinced that my body would not allow 30 more seconds (which he ALWAYS managed to get 60 more seconds, OUCH!).

    Kisar is a professional, who pays attention to the detail/aspirations of each one of his clients.

    Come back to Cali Kisar!

    Kisar is such a great trainer! He won't let you slack off and has a way of miscounting to push you further than you ever thought you could go. Lol

    Those of you in the Portland area are so lucky to have him!
