Scott Johnson


Scott earned his undergraduate degree in Exercises Science at Grand Valley State University in his home state of Michigan and his Master’s Degree in Physical Therapy from Winston-Salem State University in North Carolina. Upon graduation, he ventured West to Colorado and hasn’t been East since!

While in Colorado Springs, Scott had the opportunity to work with the USA Judo Olympian hopefuls, USA Figure Skating Olympians, Colorado Springs Tigers AAA Hockey team, Professional Boxing camps, NFL athletes, CrossFit games athletes, and Professional Runners.

When opportunity came, he moved to Aspen to pursue adventure and be surrounded by numerous incredible mentors. During his time in Aspen, he had the opportunity to treat winter X-game athletes, outdoor enthusiasts, and adventure sport athletes.

His interests then moved him to Billings, Montana where he noticed that CrossFit and Olympic Weightlifting athletes were being grossly mismanaged by the medical system. This led him to open his first practice where he could create his own methods to enable CrossFit enthusiasts and Weightlifters to meet their goals.

He and his business partner grew their practice from a table in the corner of a CrossFit gym to a brick and mortar space equipped to manage the care of the communities CrossFit and Olympic Weightlifting athletes. While in Billings, he helped several more CrossFit athletes make their way to the CrossFit games while he continued to grow his practice around the outdoor enthusiasts and adventure sport athletes. After several years of steady business growth, he left the business to his partner and it continues to thrive.

He finally found his forever home in Bend several years ago. To really solidify roots, he decided to open up shop again and engrain himself in the community. When not working, you can expect to find him at the CrossFit gym, mountain biking with friends, listening to live music, or loving on his dog Franklin.
