Note from Dr Mike: Rob was our second employee (after me!), and a big reason why Spectrum took off. It first met him in our fellowship program, and it was clear that he had a passion for helping people get healthy. While he was intrigued by my ideas of bringing physical therapy into fitness, I had no idea that a clinician of his caliber would be the first to join me at Spectrum. Rob has abilities to connect with people, assess, and design programs that can’t be fully appreciated by degrees or bios. As a former patient of his, and colleague for more than I decade, I can personally attest he is as good as they get.
I have worked for Spectrum Fitness for 10 years now. Since I was 10-years-old, I have always been interested in the body, how it works, and how to improve its performance. As most of us, I had many injuries from sports and weight training, and wanted to educate myself in proper exercise and rehabilitation, and doing the same for other people. I graduated from Salem State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science. I then went on to Graduate School at Nova Southeastern University with a Master’s Degree in Physical Therapy. After practicing for two years, I completed a two-year residency program in Orthopaedic Manual Therapy. At the same time, I began training young athletes in summer programs, which brought me to Spectrum in 2007.
Spectrum gave me the opportunity to utilize both my physical therapy skills in the training world and also enhance my knowledge in strength and conditioning to use with my patients. Over the past 10 years, I have had the privilege to work with and learn from “wicked smart” knowledgeable trainers and therapists to help the quality of life for many people.
