MOOSIC, PENNSYLVANIA – APRIL 28, 2016. Nearly 20 years ago, PRO Rehabilitation Services was established to help residents of Northeastern Pennsylvania improve the quality of their lives. Since then, the Physical and Occupational therapy practice has grown to nine clinics in the region, and includes a health club in Moosic, known as PRO Fitness Club. PRO Rehab has always offered many diverse programs and services, including physical and occupational therapy, aquatic therapy, work conditioning programs, and supervised wellness programs. Also, they have had great success in helping their “athlete patients” to not only get back in the game, but to excel in their specific sport. However, they recognized the need to be able to help all area athletes achieve their full athletic potential while helping them to avoid injury.

After extensive research in the sports training arena, the company decided to incorporate the industry leading Athletic Republic training system into the PRO Rehab business. On Wednesday May 4th, Athletic Republic will open as part of the PRO Rehab and PRO Fitness facility in Moosic. “I was impressed with Athletic Republic’s individualized approach to helping each athlete achieve their own goals. Their training system improves an athlete’s speed, strength, agility, stamina and sport specific skills,” stated Lynn Distasio, PRO Rehab’s COO/ Clinical Director. “Our youth, high school, and adult athletes who are looking to get better now have the perfect resource available to help them advance to the next level of competition.”

“We are thrilled to have the PRO Rehab team join the Athletic Republic network of 110 training centers across the country,” added Athletic Republic CEO, Charlie Graves. “Having been recently recognized by Smithsonian as one of the seven most innovative gyms in the world, Athletic Republic – Moosic is well positioned to help athletes of all ages realize PRO Rehab’s vision for helping them each reach their potential and become more competitive across the region.”

Athletic Republic – Moosic located within the PRO Rehab and PRO Fitness complex at 3356 Birney Avenue within the Birney Mall in Moosic is scheduled to open on Wednesday, May 4th.
