About Dave P

Dave was born in Wisconsin and raised in the Chicago area. Recently Dave and his wife Lindsey, also a physical therapist, decided to pack up their cars and move to Southern California to escape negative winter temperatures and enjoy a year-round active lifestyle.

Dave's training background includes speed, agility, strength, and power development from collegiate football training, extensive kettlebell and barbell training experience through StrongFirst instruction, and a blend of gymnastics and bodyweight style training. Dave believes in treatment focused on addressing the true underlying cause of pain/dysfunction and empowering patients to create lasting impacts that can be life-changing.

In his free time, Dave loves hiking, being active, spending time at the beach, reading, drinking coffee (sometimes too much), and training (he is currently seeking his StrongFirst Kettlebell Certification).
