This coronavirus pandemic has created a lot of anxiety, worry, and heartache for many of us.
I am a big believer in this quote that I recently came across…
We need to continue to push forward if not for ourselves…we need to do it for our families and our children. Let’s be the role models our children will remember during these unprecedented times.
To that end, I am taking this opportunity to serve EVEN MORE of you!
To help you STAY ACTIVE, STAY HEALTHY & Improve YOUR IMMUNITY (and mental sanity) during this crisis together!
📍 That is why I have created the SPARK Online Fitness Community.
To help you continue to move forward in your health when most people are retracting with binging unhealthy snacks, Netflix and chill, and Disney + all day.
We are going to persevere together…and come out stronger on the other end of this together!
I will still continue to see my private clients at SPARK Physical Therapy virtually to help them continue to move forward, but this is an opportunity for all of us to work together.
Here is the best part…it is only $30/month
…and you can do it in the comfort and safety of your own home!
It doesn’t matter if you’re new to fitness, been working out on and off as a weekend warrior, or are a dedicated gym goer and runner 🏃🏻♀️…this program is for you.
This is how SPARK Physical Therapy is helping our running community out during these difficult times. We get after it every M,W,F at 6AM (different exercise program each day of the week)
For the 20 community members that were in our SPARK Fitness program in April they were able to catch the replay and get their real-time workout either during a lunch break or after work so they can as a runner for less than a cup of coffee per workout!
Jump into our community for the month of May…only if you want to continue moving forward with your health goals for 2020 (even during a global pandemic)
Simply, text “SPARK Fitness” to (203) 376-6514 for availability. Spots are limited, get yours before they run away!
Here is what one of our members of the SPARK Fitness Program said after 4 weeks of participating in April…
“Dr. Duane Scotti is professional and knows what he’s doing. I got to know him from his Facebook group “Healthy Runner”, where runners discuss about racing, nutrition, etc., especially injury recovery/prevention, among them including some experts such as Duane. I’ve been proactive asking questions to deal with minor injuries before they get serious and was lucky to go up to 90 miles per week and PRed my races without major injury.
It’s worth mentioning that Duane has developed a special online home fitness program during this pandemic, while the races are cancelled and outdoor runs are more limited. These programs are GREAT which covers different aspects including foam-rolling, mobility, stability, stretching and strengthening, so it’s a comprehensive package and a perfect hit for runners and active adults! Especially for runners who don’t do cross training or hate lifting weights (a vast majority lol).
Many runners hate lifting weights but that’s the essential way to prevent injury. I’ve been lifting weights and doing yoga before the running so I have a better understanding of the reason behind his workouts, making me more appreciate that Duane’s workout are well designed for runners! That’s why I highly recommend Duane’s program, which made it less intimidating and even fun and enjoyable to get stronger.”
We are going to persevere…and come out stronger on the other end of this TOGETHER as a running community!
Let’s bring our running community closer during these times.
In best health,

“I developed IT band syndrome during my first marathon training cycle last year and ended up in physical therapy for about 3 months. I was told not to run if I had any pain at all. I lost so much time “recovering” that I ended up deferring my registration to the next year. I spent the next summer training for the same marathon when about 6 weeks out, that familiar IT band pain returned. I could barely finish a mile. I didn’t want to go back to my physical therapist because I knew what he was going to tell me. Stop running. I was so frustrated and started to feel like marathons weren’t for me. I stumbled upon the healthy runner podcast and learned that I don’t have to stop running in order to recover from injury! I was skeptical about an online physical therapy session. But I reached out to Dr. Scotti and he was able to give me the tools to mitigate my pain within the first session! I was able to complete my training cycle and made it to the finish line of my first marathon with his help! I highly recommend!”
“I’d been dealing with Proximal Hamstring Tendinopathy (PHT) for about 4 years and had been doing PT, but still had lingering pains. I just figured I’d have to suck it up and deal with it because that was as good as I was going to get. But then, I came across a podcast of Duane being interviewed by Jason Fitzgerald on PHT and how he overcame the injury, and my curiosity was piqued. I met with him virtually and he has been a GODSEND! I’m able to sit as I type this! I can bend over and get in and out of cars without pain! And, I’m RUNNING again!!! It is amazing to be able to do things that I haven’t been able to do without pain since 2016!!! Thank you so much Duane for being an incredible PT!!”
“I suffered from IT band syndrome for four years before seeing Dr. Scotti in April 2020. Before then, I couldn’t run more than about 10 minutes without stabbing pain near my left knee. I’d seen various orthopedists, physical therapists, and chiropractors looking for some relief. My career needed me to run a mile and a half within a certain amount of time, and it was impossible to do so with the knee pain. I saw Dr. Scotti and he immediately got to work! That first visit, he helped me understand the anatomy and underlying cause of my knee pain (aka IT Band syndrome). Once I understood what was happening, the course of treatment made so much sense. Not only did he have online videos of all the recommended exercises to treat the problem, his “healthy runner” Facebook group, Podcast, and YouTube videos held a wealth of information and supplemented my plan. I soon understood that running wasn’t just a casual hobby – it’s a sport and one that deserves dedication and focus. Without his dedication to the sport and his community, I wouldn’t have realized this! Over the next few months, I had many ups and downs – victories and failures – and even some tears! Two steps forward and one step back. Dr. Scotti always checked in between appointments and tweaked my plan if needed. By August, I was regularly running 3-4 miles with barely any pain! If I did get pain, it was because my dedication and focus were lacking – and I quickly picked it back up and overcame. I’m so thankful I took another chance at having my knee looked at and trusted someone else. I run regularly now and am really enjoying it. I can’t thank Dr. Scotti enough and would highly recommend him to anyone having trouble.”
