| Posted on 08/02/15 | In my first transition letter, I expressed my gratitude for the relationships that have made my personal experience at Athletes Advantage better than I ever anticipated. That trend has continued as we prepare to close for nearly 3 months. The concept of continuing to train clients and treat patients certainly is desirable, but how and specifically where is a major obstacle. I was regretfully resolved to hope that we could all survive a time of unemployment and that our clients would forgive us for their inconvenience.


This past week, two organizations contacted me to offer their assistance by allowing us to use their facilities during our re-model time. Neither of these organizations have anything to gain or even benefit by helping us. In fact, on the surface, reaching out to us in this manner is helping a competitor.


I am overwhelmed and humbled. I would like to forever thank the Doctors of The Center for Bone and Joint Surgery for allowing us to use their in house Physical Therapy Department to continue to provide treatment to our patients and Personal Trainer and Life Coach Tony Cabrales from Tony Fit 4 Life for offering his facility to us for fitness and training.


Details of the arrangements will be shared soon. Today, I just needed to express my gratitude to these two organizations. I will never forget their sacrifice for my benefit.

| Posted on 07/29/15 | On August 31, 2015, the lease at Athletes Advantage will end. We have always been able to remain affordable in the past because of our physical therapy revenues. This is no longer the case. Insurance reimbursements for physical therapy services drop every year and are expected to continue doing so. With a 30% reduction in rehabilitation insurance reimbursements, not only has it become impossible for our rehab services to support Athletes Advantage, but the patient volume demand to maintain finances makes it impossible for me to spend quality time with people anymore. This is not what I can consider acceptable or practical.


On August 31, 2015, Athletes Advantage will close its doors.


It has been an extreme blessing and honor to serve and provide our services over the past 12 years at our Wellington location. I truly cherish the many relationships that have been birthed at 11120 South Crown Way. Thank you to everyone: staff, patients, athletes, clients and community supporters for the special decade plus run you have provided. Read More.
