Shift Performance PT is not your ordinary PT! Dr. Blake is very knowledgeable but takes the time to get to know you, your lifestyle, and your goals. I have had lower back pain for years and thought I’d never be able to lift heavy again. I had basically given up on squats and deadlifts. I also have general back pain anytime I work in my yard or do construction projects around the house or church. But with his instruction and therapy I am stronger than ever and I feel better than I have in years! I highly recommend Shift Performance PT and if I could give him more than 5 stars, I would!!

I stumbled on a biz card for Shift Performance while working out at Bullman’s. Though I’d been going to the gym regularly for over a year (doing mostly cardio), I wasn’t seeing gains anymore and had developed some lower back problems. I knew I had to have more quality workouts. That said, my schedule is crazy, I’m neither a morning nor after-work athlete, and I don’t love group classes. I need flexibility but also structure/accountability, coaching, and personalization. That is exactly what I’ve gotten with Blake. And results. He puts in the time, I put in the time. And it works. Blake creates 4-5 workouts for me each week that I complete on my schedule, and we have a monthly check-in to train on new stuff, recognize improvements or setbacks, and reset goals. Can’t recommend Shift Performance enough!!
