“Move your body often, sometimes hard, every bit counts!” 

RBFR’s Mission

Reality Based Fitness & Rehab, is a cash-based Physical Therapy, Strength & Conditioning and wellness practice located in Chandler, AZ.  RBFR specializes in bridging the gap between traditional rehab/therapy to help you get back to sport and life. The end goal is to help reduce future pain and injuries by focusing on sustainable strategies for fitness and athletic development; especially for the aging athlete! In order to provide the best care, great effort is taken on my part is to stay up to date with the latest scientific (aka “Reality-Based”) information to ensure that the results achieved are by design, and not by chance. 

Let me take the guesswork out of what you should or shouldn’t be doing with your fitness, performance, and rehabilitation goals! 

Personalized care to get you back to doing what you love is the goal!

My commitment is to continually strive to improve your overall health while encouraging better movement habits to promote improved physical and mental performance throughout the lifespan. I believe that we are all athletes and we are never too old to improve! And with the proper care of your body, it is possible to sustain a very high level of function as we age, while reducing the need for unnecessary surgery or medication!
