Attain Therapy + Fitness employs some of the most skilled and experienced physical and occupational therapists, fitness trainers and health professionals in the region. With this new name, the company seeks to reaffirm its dedication to helping its clients attain their health and fitness goals.

The therapists, fitness trainers and other health professionals at Attain Therapy + Fitness look forward to helping all of their clients attain a healthier and happier life.

James Biron, PT, a founding partner of Attain Therapy + Fitness and a specialist in vestibular therapy and balance training, notes that the company is dedicated to assisting not only those in need of physical/occupational therapy, but also those who need guidance in a fitness/wellness program from a medical professional.

"We are finding that many of our clients are looking for a bridge between clinical therapy and the traditional health-club or personal trainer. They want someone with experience who understands their medical limitations and unique needs, but may not need acute rehabilitation," he said.

Terry Ditmar, PT, CSCS, a founding partner specializing in sports medicine, emphasized that the therapists and trainers of Attain Therapy + Fitness provide much more than a gym for those seeking a healthier lifestyle.

"Our fitness coaches have degrees in sports medicine and related fields, providing advanced fitness programs that are medically oriented and customized for each client's special needs," Ditmar said.

Marylynn Jacobs MS, OTR/L, CHT, a founding partner, nationally recognized author and certified specialist in hand/wrist therapy, reaffirms the company's dedication to the wellness of each client based on his/her specific needs.

"Our new name reflects what we do so well: helping our clients achieve their own therapeutic and fitness goals above all else, whether they are recovering from an accident, looking to achieve better performance in sports or living with a condition or disease like diabetes," she added.
