I would HIGHLY recommend as a veteran physical therapy patient. This group knows their stuff and will look at your body as the inter connected machine it is. I am just beginning my journey here but I can already see a difference in the long battle I've waged with knee pain. I can't wait to see what the future brings!

Back Cove Personal Fitness changed my life in an hour and a half. Working with Noah Harrison, he quickly identified my problem; open hips that have caused back and other body injuries for over forty years. Some simple but intimate work later, I found immediate pain relief and a shining light for the road ahead. Improvement continued quickly, and it has transformed my physical and mental health. Looking forward to World Class skiing (Nordic, Downhill, Backcountry) for the next 50 years. Worth every penny. Go see 'em and fix it.

I began going to Back Cove Personal Fitness and working with Jeff Eckhouse after having been told I was "bone on bone" in both hips and needed two hip replacements. As an avid athlete (skier, hiker, biker) I didn't want to go into surgery without having my body mechanics correct and I wanted to be in the best shape possible. After working with Jeff even a short time, I am starting to walk the way I should with no pain or limp. I am regaining correct mechanics, building strength around my legs and hips, and learning to correct years of misalignment which has caused me many of my issues. This is not your "hey, lets lift some weights and go harder" kind of place. I mean, if course its about getting into shape. But at its core its about getting into shape CORRECTLY. These are body mechanics wizards; they see things in a way other facilities and trainers can't even imagine. They give you exercises to not only build strength, but to reset your neuromuscular pathways and correct gait and movement habits that you didn't even know you had. And as that happens, you realize this is what has been stopping you from feeling better while doing the things you love and performing at a higher level. Will I end up with hip replacements? No doubt sometime. But for now I am looking forward to ski season, which I missed last year due to these issues. And if I do have surgery, I'll have a better result, and better mechanics at the end because of their work. Great people, smart body technicians, and a friendly place. Highly recommended.

Jeff and his team are fantastic! Really helped me with my knee and I saw instant results after one session. Highly recommend them.

I have had first rate PT and training in many cities, in many countries, and this group is uniquely gifted. Jeff is possibly a wizard. Not in a purple coat, pointy mustache way but in a I CANT BELIEVE YOU FIXED MY BODY way. Smart and passionate, they will make you healthier and stronger.
