Our History

BYR_8852 (800x534)Performance has grown tremendously since its inception in 1999 in the basement of our founder’s home. Formed to provide physical therapy, athletic training and sports performance enhancement training services that “Performed”, and it still is!  Through hard work and dedicated service our employees have been able to demonstrate phenomenal growth.  In 2008, we opened our state-of-the-art facility in Coralville bringing Performance Therapies together with Performance Health & Fitness.

 

This 25,000-square-foot health club means our clients and patients have access to highly trained physical therapists, athletic trainers, strength & conditioning coaches, personal trainers and group fitness instructors all under one roof.  In 2002, we opened our Cedar Rapids Performance Therapies clinic which currently offers physical therapy, athletic training, sports performance enhancement training and personal training. In 2011, we expanded into Kalona offering all of the same services as our Coralville location.  As we continue to grow we will hold to the our original mission of being the best part of our patients/clients day by performing at the highest level, ensuring that client goals and expectations are met.

Since joining Performance, I have made huge gains. The process of recovering from knee surgery has been much easier because of the expertise of the Performance staff in helping me get back to full strength. I would recommend this gym to anyone.*

Under the guidance of trainers, I have been able to decrease my 5K time from 28 minutes to under 20 minutes in just 2 years.  I have also lost 30 pounds while increasing strength, endurance and power.*

Training over the last few years at Performance has been the best health decision I have ever made.  Leslie, my current trainer, keeps me on track to stay fit and strong, makes our sessions interesting and challenging, and is always positive, even when I have setbacks.*

“I am a competitive cyclist and have been in personal training at Performance for 6 years. The best part about the trainers is that they know our medical histories very well.  Leslie is great at modifying a training session specifically to each individual person’s limitations so as to avoid injury.”*

“I’m retired and enjoy a full, active life. This is due, in no small part, to the time I spend at Performance. The group classes provide a great workout and lots of variety. Plus, a fun way to meet new friends!”*
