OptimisSport Ambassador

As part of OptimisSport's media and branding campaign we have partnered with high profile athletes to spread the message about physical therapist and their role in the health and fitness of the nation. These athletes will appear at local events designed to bring attention to individual practices. They will also be the face of many of our OptimisSport Events.
