December 7, 2020 - Chicago, IL -- With many people reluctant to use gymnasiums now with the spread of coronavirus, Dr Schnidman, DPT has hit upon an idea to use her physical therapy studio for one-on-one personal training. As a certified personal trainer and doctor of physical therapy, she is now incorporating personal training and the program has been a big hit with her clients.

Lauren told us “The studio gym has long been a big hit with many of our physical therapy patients. I came up with the idea of offering my personal training skills in the clinically clean fitness studio during the recent restrictions.” Word of mouth has spread quickly and people across Chicago are now filling up the slots fast. I never thought that I would see such demand and I am both shocked and delighted with the response from existing and new clients”.

The Chicago fitness studio is an integral part of the physical therapy practice, is hygienically cleaned between sessions and is equipped with apparatus that people would find at their local gym, but the difference is the motivation, encouragement and expertise of a personal trainer who happens to be a physical therapist.

Any goal that a client sets out to achieve is reached with the motivation of In Motion Physical Therapy.
