Empowerment and Education


If we do our job, eventually our clients will no longer need us. Our aim is to promote self-efficacy, thus enabling the client to become the expert on his or her health and understand how to pursue their goals in the most comfortable, preferred setting.


Excellence


Every aspect of care for our clients is executed to the best of our abilities as physical therapists. Based on our educational background and experience, we are uniquely equipped to provide wellness services to our clients.


Quality


The gym will be clean and sanitary for each client. Equipment will be selected and inspected for safe use. Wellness plans are designed around the goals of the client and backed by current research and best evidence.  Plans are never given in a protocol, or one-size-fits-all manner.


Professionalism


Respectfull and dignified service at all times, delivered in a prompt manner. We provide wellness services as clinicians with post-graduate degrees and personal trainers with national certifications.


Teamwork


We want to work with our clients to achieve their goals; their goal is our goal. At APEX, we are not coaches to our clients, but partners.


Evidence-Based and Research-Driven Plans


All plans and education will be backed by current research and techniques. Clients' questions and concerns will be assessed against clinical evidence and reasoning.  We may not know all the answers, but we will do our best to review current research and find them for our clients.
