On-site Physical Therapists

Recovering from an injury or setback? Eager to alleviate pain and get back to feeling your best? At PPR Fitness, we’re right there with you. Our highly skilled, licensed physical therapy team comes highly recommended—with a track record that speaks for itself.

We can get you into your first session with a licensed physical therapist usually within 24-48 hours. So why wait to start feeling better? We pride ourselves on providing individualized, hands-on treatments that get to the heart of your specific needs—whether it’s easing chronic discomfort or aiding recovery post-injury or surgery.

Personal Training Programs

Your body doesn’t function the same way as the person’s next to you, so why should you be trained the same way? Each person has different needs to achieve the goals they want. We design every client’s program based upon lifestyle, schedule, body, and more so that you walk away with a program that is just for YOU! We offer individualized training and 8-week group season to help athletes maintain peak performance during or off-season.


We don’t want to simply tell you what to do, we want you to understand why you are doing it. Understanding your program from start to finish will allow you to walk away with fitness knowledge that you can carry with you beyond our doors. During your time at PPR Fitness, enjoy knowing there’s a licensed physical therapist on-site should you have any aches or pains to discuss.

Our staff takes time to listen to your needs and goals, offers a supportive demeanor, and provides encouragement every step of the way.

We are here to provide continuous support, feedback and adjustments to help you achieve your personal goals and fitness objectives.
