The latest Natick, Mass., business news:
PT Progression combines physical therapy & training
South Natick recently welcomed physical therapy and private training business PT Progression to 10 Eliot St., where couple Shawn and Rachael Sprague have set up their home and business. Lawyers previously occupied the building.
PT Progression features both a brand new physical therapy facility and gym, allowing clients to not only rehab, but train. “You need flexibility and strength,” says Shawn, a practicing physical therapist for the past 8 years. “You can’t just focus on one without the other.”
Before opening PT Progression, Shawn had rented space in Needham, where he embraced the pairing of physical therapy and personal training. His experience also includes teaching physical therapy at Simmons University.
The outfit boasts a variety of equipment for stretching and strength, including a SledMill for a good overall workout, a newfangled bike, a rowing machine, and lots and lots of bands and straps (I banged out, uh, 2 pushups using straps suspended from the beam over my head). Gear is ideal for those training for golf and other sports, Shawn says.
PT Progression does not work directly with insurance companies.
The business has largely grown through word-of-mouth, and PT Progression is looking to build its team. Email Shawn if interested.
