All of Foot Traffic’s staff has been trained to take you through our COMPLIMENTARY VIDEO GAIT ANALYSIS to analyze what shoe works best for your foot. They also have a tremendous amount of experience walking, running, and hiking. Combine this with in-depth knowledge of the shoes we carry and you get a complete experience that will keep you moving down the road or trail with happy feet, legs, hips, bodies, and minds.
Questions about that nagging pain in your knee? Wonder why your achilles is so stiff in the morning? Can’t figure out how to fix that sore heel and arch? At Foot Traffic, we’ve got the answer to these questions and more. Not only is our staff experienced at all levels of running and walking, but we invite podiatrists, physical therapists, and other medical professionals into our store each year to get updates on preventative treatments, new products, wellness advice, and more!

Rivet Athletic Club

Neighborhood: Westmoreland
Business Address: 5035 SE McLoughlin Blvd
Business Hours: http://rivet.fit/schedule/


Robert, Susan and their three kids love to stay active, whether outdoors or in a gym. CrossFit is at the core of their healthy lifestyle. For Robert, receiving a prosthetic heart valve a few years back as a result of a congenital defect, CrossFit and an active lifestyle is the best thing he can do to protect against illness. Susan’s background in customer service, retail and high-tech has resulted in her pent-up desire to do something with greater purpose. Something that will benefit not only her children but the local community around her. She loves to interact with people, entertain and make sure everyone is happy.

Scott loves to coach and motivate people. His background in hospitality and events combined with his years of experience in coaching people of all ages at one of the world’s most successful CrossFit franchises, NorCal CrossFit (now NC Fit), fueled his desire to build a community of his own.

Scott began coaching the Lacis kids at NC Fit’s Juniors program and this where the idea for Rivet Athletic Club was born. Scott and the Lacis family always talked about their love of Portland, CrossFit and opening their own gym. The rest is history.

Rivet Athletic Club’s purpose is simple – to provide a professional facility with a robust class schedule and staff dedicated to helping the community achieve great fitness results. We place tremendous value on fitness beyond the four walls of the gym and organize regular events like trail workouts, river paddles and ski/snowboard days.
