Post-Physical Therapy HelP IN FORT COLLINS

About Post-Physical Therapy

Since 2018, I have been working with clients that need assistance with their post-physical therapy needs in Fort Collins after knee replacements, back injuries, or other challenges.

In the last 15 years, I have worked with a host of clients with varying physical limitations. The list of physical limitations that I have helped clients with include:

  • Knee and hip replacements
  • Knee injuries
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Back injuries and surgeries
  • Spinal cord injuries and fusions
  • Strokes (both cerebral and spinal)
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Heart failure
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes
  • Fibromyalgia

How Post-Physical Therapy Works

In 2018, I was approached by a local physical therapist that was working with one of my existing long-term clients to see if I was interested in taking on more Fort Collins based post-physical therapy clients. After thinking about it, it made sense for me to help these existing patients for the physical therapist that contacted me. Since physical therapy benefits eventually run out due to insurance limitations, it was a logical fit to help these patients continue to progress in their programs.

Dennis is simply a life saver. After double knee surgery, followed six months later with surgery to repair a torn quad and 15 months of physical therapy, I needed a personal trainer. My wonderful and experienced physical therapist said he had done all that he could do. I had good mobility, but my quad was still weak. He urged me to join a gym or find some other way to strengthen my quad and build my endurance.

My spouse was going through physical therapy with a different physical therapist. In discussing my situation with her therapist, the therapist recommended Dennis. After a little due diligence, I visited with Dennis and decided to start a program with him. I knew I needed to continue to improve my physical condition, but I have not had great experiences with gyms. The personal trainer concept made a lot of sense to me.

I have been working with Dennis twice a week for three months, and I couldn’t have asked for a better solution. I was spending a lot of time driving to my physical therapist, having a session and then driving home. Dennis comes right on time to my home saving a lot of time, and I am able to work in a comfortable environment.

Dennis is demanding but very fair; always asking after set of exercises if I am doing okay with the movements. He is very bright and frankly delightful to work with every session. There are no gym fees or lost time traveling to a gym. His fees are extremely reasonable.

I am making good progress and thanks to Dennis, I more optimistic about my future.

I work with the therapists at Advanced Spine Physical Therapy to come up with comprehensive post-physical therapy plans that benefit their patients. I go to the homes of these patients to continue their programs to achieve the best possible outcome in continuing their therapy. They do not need to join a gym or purchase any special equipment to help with their therapy.

Client Testimonials

Dennis is the best personal trainer ever...truly! After a few workouts, I was doing things I didn't even know I was capable of! I will never train with anyone else. If you're looking for someone to take your money and go easy on you, Dennis is NOT your guy. However, if you want a serious trainer that will work you to your fullest potential and help you meet your goals, give Dennis a call. Not only have I lost weight as a result of his workouts, but, my flat tummy is back! Woohoo! Thank you Core Fitness!!!

At the age of 23, I was diagnosed with POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome). Which meant that any form of physical exercise would prompt dizziness and the occasional fainting. Whenever I stood up too fast or got out of bed, I'd get lightheaded and dizzy. As a very active, young individual, not being able to hike, play sports with friends, or make simple positional changes made life very frustrating. Most importantly, for my dream career I needed to get SCUBA certified, but was unable to do so with my condition.

My doctor recommended that I seek out someone to help me with consistent and graduated physical activity to strengthen my cardiovascular system. That's how I came across Dennis Blair and he does a great job creating a plan to help me progress with my physical activity. He is exceedingly thorough and thoughtful when it comes to my specialized training plans. We went from simple exercises on the ground to standing and jumping! I've been working with Dennis for roughly 1 year now and, WOW, what a difference it has made. Dizzy spells and lightheadedness are now infrequent and I've been able to get back into rock climbing, riding my bike, moderate hiking, and get out of bed in the morning. Plus, I am so close to being cleared for SCUBA diving! I could never have gotten to this point without Dennis.

I am so grateful for Dennis and his dedication to helping me get back to the active lifestyle I once had lived and working towards my dream job.

Thank you, Dennis!!

At the ripe old age of 64, I knew I needed to do something to ward off the effects of being undisciplined with my diet and physical activity most of my life. With a strong recommendation from a friend who had had incredible results working with Dennis for a couple years, I knew it was an opportunity I could not turn down:) Now after two years with Dennis as my personal trainer coaching me through 2 workouts per week, I can testify I have not only lost weight, but, more importantly, I am stronger in all areas of my body! The strengthening has allowed me to do things I could not do before (i.e. walking all over New York City). Dennis was sensitive to where I was when I started with him, and, he designed a program personalized to what I needed and wanted. He is encouraging, professional and gets results because he expects results!
