Dave Seabeck


“I worked with Joey and was really pleased with the experience. Up and Running has a strong reputation in the local running community, and deservedly so. I got personalized exercises with modifications to work on my weak zones. Over a series of appointments I saw growth in my strength and corresponding updates to my assignments based on my available equipment and time. I liked that I could ask all the questions I wanted, get the reasons why the exercises would help, and where to focus my attention when learning new techniques. By my last appointment I had a library of options to continue on my own. Up and Running and Joey certainly left me in a better place and I would recommend them to anyone either coming in with a specific issue or simply looking for areas to improve.”

“My wife has been seeing Jen for years and is a professional dancer. Jen is incredibly knowledgeable and a master of her craft as a PT. When Jen started working at up and running, I was looking for someone to help take my triathlon andI ultra endurance game up a notch. Jen recommended Joey to me. My experience working with Joey has been nothing but exceptional. This group of PT and staff are super knowledgeable, personable, cool, and make you feel welcome. I totally trust my PT Joey to help keep me safe, injury free, and find imbalances that limit my performance both in sport and daily life! As nurse practitioner and strong believer in physical therapy, I have and will continue to recommend family, friends, and patients to them for everything mentioned above!”
