Rene Vega - Owner

Rene Vega


Rene Vega is the Owner & Coach here at Washington Strength House. He specializes in olympic weightlifting, gymnastics, athletic performance and making people feel good about themselves by instilling a newfound sense of confidence.

“I’m passionate about helping our community renew and reshape their lives by being their mentor and guiding them as they need in their lives. It’s amazing to work with a wide range of individuals and help them develop a lifelong love of fitness.”

Coach Vega’s athletic background comes from a wide range of sports and activities. In high school, he was involved in Cross Country and Track and Field. His main events where the 1600m and 4x400m relay.  

Rene found a love for fitness in 2010 and has become a very well-rounded athlete, but more importantly gaining a sense of community and a sense of purpose. Rene found a love in working to get people fit for life and in competitive fitness events like nothing he had ever experienced and made many lifelong friends through his training.

This completely altered his views on life and sent him on a life of service to those who were willing to listen to his views on fitness and health...all while highly caffeinated :)
