Instructor Insights

Linda Schetky  |  Boot Camp, Blitz, Kettle Blast, Xcelerate

Portland native Linda Schetky spent her childhood summers hiking and swimming with her three older sisters in the picturesque wilds of Mount Hood. Those early years spent outdoors instilled a love for movement and hard work. Linda carried that passion to team sports in high school and college, where she played intramural volleyball at the University of Washington. After college, she continued to play volleyball and began taking group exercise classes. Eventually, Linda noticed one of her instructors was struggling to find a good substitute. She jumped on the opportunity, earned her certification, and began filling in. Since then, she has established herself as a full-time instructor. Fitness Programs Manager George Sommerrock recruited her to the WAC in March 2017. “My classes are the highlight of my day,” Linda says. “WAC members are kind, hard working, and they make my job super exciting.” In her spare time, Linda competes in road and trail runs. She is also mother to two daughters in high school.
