Back in 2012, Woody Powell developed severe pain in his right arm, and gradually lost the use of his right hand. After a year of visiting different specialists, he was referred to Mark McMahon at Revolutions in Fitness. Mark gave him the tools to not only regain the use of his right arm, but to maintain that improvement through exercises he can do while traveling.

"In 2010, I was 50 pounds overweight and borderline diabetic. Under the advice of my doctor I started running. I ran my first 5K in 2010 under 35 minutes. Fast forward to 2014 - I ran 3 half marathons in a year, but not without injury. Katie has been able to help me with pain reduction after races, promote mobility with strength exercises while I’m training, and restore function to my ankle. This year 2015, I have already run 2 races back to back - 31km in 2 days! Thank you Katie for helping fix the broken me and also thank you to the ladies at the front desk who are always there with a smile!"

"When I started seeing Katie, I was barely able to get up, and getting from a disabled parking space to Katie’s treatment room was an ordeal. After working with Katie for 4 months I am able to take a walk for an hour without pain! I don't even want to imagine what would have happened to me if I didn't find her.

Katie examined me very thoroughly and figured out the source of the problem that MRI and x-rays did not help reveal before. I have not been able to do many of the standard exercises because I have multiple problems. Katie worked very hard to figure out what would work for me, adapted the exercises, and never gave up when she realized there is yet another exercise I was not able to do.

Katie is great at listening and understanding your symptoms, and she adapts a session to your current needs. Katie explains exercises in detail and records a video of the exercise on your phone so you can refer to it when practicing at home. She also reviews the exercises to make sure you do them correctly. That helps tremendously!

I have been impressed with the front desk, Jay and Trevor are on top of all the invoices, scheduling, and making sure the appointments start on time. They are both super friendly and helpful. To sum it up, RIF runs smoothly, staff is professional and the results are unparalleled!"

"I am 54 years old with severe osteoarthritis, have had 7 knee surgeries and am in need of a knee replacement. Revolutions in Fitness and Jamie were recommended to me by a friend two years ago as a last ditch effort to avoid replacement. I have been to many PT’s before and was skeptical at first, but Jamie has given me hope that I can stave off replacement indefinitely. Jamie evaluates the problem, but instead of working on what is obvious, she looks for what is causing the problem. I came in for treatment on my left knee, but we spend most of the time working on my right side as issues on my right leg were causing me to list to my left, causing the pain. Jamie puts in an incredible amount of effort in her manual therapy; it is not unusual that she is sweating more than me after our session. She also explains exactly what she is doing, what she hopes to accomplish and is open to my input of what is working the best. I would recommend Jamie to anyone, and even my wife refers to her as ‘the knee whisperer’."

"Thank you Mark for helping me reach my goal of climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. It was a huge physical and mental challenge and you helped me with both. I really appreciate the time you spent helping me get through my training aches, pains and doubts and for the tips you gave me to help me get through 9 days on the mountain, hiking to 19,340 ft., and avoiding injuries."

“The fit session with Justin was awesome. With his advice I was able to find a frame that fit perfectly out of the box, and rode a 100 mile event last weekend with zero issues or pain. I'm super happy with the service, keep up the great work!”

"I have been seeing Susan Casto for physical therapy and I am very impressed with her work and expertise.  Susan spent time carefully examining me and treating my various asymmetries that led to my injury. She was recommended to me by an outside physical therapist who is one of the best in the area (Curtis Cramblett), and I have not been disappointed. Susan has excellent training that is invaluable, and I am so glad that she has been able to see me and treat me over the past few months. She is one of the biggest reasons that I was able to successfully complete my Ironman race in Canada."

"A number of injuries including a crash on my motorcycle while training for superbike racing resulted in structural lumbar and cervical spine problems. My back pain was constant. As an avid cyclist, I was determined to return to health and compete in the bicycle racing scene again. I began seeing Dr. Katie at Revolutions in Fitness. I am now competing at the national level against the top cyclists in my age group! It is amazing that I’m finishing my most successful race season ever with a number of wins and podium finishes – even against the younger guys! No way this was possible without the treatment I got from Dr. Katie. We continue working on the issues that resulted from my injuries and surgeries. I’m looking forward to even more success for the season next year. I’m so grateful for Revolutions in Fitness. Thank you for an epic season on my bike!"

"During the season I took two major falls onto my left hip, including one that broke my bike. After my second fall in the Giro Di San Francisco racing as a Cat 2, my hip became so impinged I could hardly ride 8 hours a week. Then Curtis came in to save my 2012 season. With his expertise, Curtis was able to solve my problem within a few treatments. I continue to receive therapy from Mark, Curtis, and Katie when any problems arise and to further my flexibility and efficiency on my bike.  I'll be starting the 2012 season racing for the Alto Velo/Webcor Elite team and with the help of Revolutions in Fitness I've already increased my zone 1 power by 9%. 
This is shaping up to be the most incredible racing season of my life, my potential is limitless, but only after it's been unlocked. My story is one of hope and motivation. I have never had an injury of any kind that the team at Revolutions in Fitness has not been able to cure. They have restored my livelihood and given me lifelong solutions to my problems. If you're looking for the last piece to the puzzle, you've finally found it."

"In the two years I have been going to Revolution In Fitness (RIF) for bike fittings, I’ve recorded faster times every time I leave a bike fit session.
I have no doubts to what is happening beneath me on the bike which allows me to focus 100% of my energy on training and winning. RIF has helped me be injury free and medal in Elite, National, and World level competitions."

"Revolutions in Fitness has truly rejuvenated my athletic dreams. After struggling with a debilitating injury for 2+ years, I thought my days in triathlon were numbered as I had seen a multitude of practitioners, to no avail. The team at Revolutions looked at my entire body as a complete machine, and through changing my posture on and off the bike we were able to dissipate the pain. I am now training and racing at 100% again! I’ve been fit by a lot of amazing bike fitters, but none beat Revolutions in Fitness. Their knowledge, expertise, and big picture thinking makes Revolutions my absolute “go to team” from now on."

"Before working with Katie, I made regular trips to orthopedic surgeons with lots of issues. 
Katie diagnosed my issues one by one and gave me workouts and stretches to fix the multiple root causes that limited my training and racing. Since working with Katie as my primary PT and MT, I’ve won US national championships, US national senior games championship, individual and team state level titles, top tens at world championships, plus a couple of dozen silver and bronze medals at the national and state level. This would not have been possible without Katie’s competent help. My leg and knee pain is gone and I haven’t seen the orthopedic surgeon in over five years. Thank you Katie!"

"Just wanted to share the good news - that I made it onto the podium at National Championships. In the para-cycling tt, and that qualified me to go to the World Champs in August.
THANK YOU for all your help over the years - I would most certainly not be here doing this right now, if not for you. Bummer for the Garmin guys so far in the Tour.....I was (well, still am) rooting for them. Thanks again."

"I had failed back surgery after years of regular PT, biofeedback, acupuncture, all of which didn't help much. After surgery I was worse, literally house bound and on full disability. Curtis convincingly assessed exactly the right muscle groups to work on, constantly updated a progressive baby step program, kept me loose through flares with gentle body work, and gave me self help tools. I'm back to hikes, rock climbs, cycling and gym routine. And I'm 62! His patient, tailored approach stoked my hope and determination, all of which has brought me to my new day."

“Hi Curtis,

My name is Aaron and I was one of the Fresno State students at the IPA course this past weekend. I just wanted to thank you again for all of the hard work you did teaching us. I am still so amazed at the techniques that PNF has to offer. The demo you did was absolutely amazing and it blew my mind with how fun, effective, and cool PNF is.

I originally was looking in to an OCS residency but am now working on applying for my PNF residency at Vallejo Kaiser. You turned every question into a learning experience and were so receptive. You made everybody feel understood and you are a wonderful instructor/role model. Every student in the room felt your passion towards towards the profession and towards PNF. 

My whole career plans have changed paths and I feel that the PNF residency is waiting for me because I have seen the magic and want to do what you are able to do with these tools in clinic.

Know that you have had a big influence on me and all of your effort is appreciated. I hope we cross paths in the future. Thanks so much.”
