Six years ago, our clients started referring to us as the #BestgyminNH. We’ve always worked hard to live up to that moniker. Although we were pioneering the fitness industry by offering a service unlike any other gyms in Concord, NH we certainly didn’t rest on our laurels. Over the last six years we’ve evolved as a business by expanding our facility, continuously adding to our unique selection of equipment, educating our staff, offering more services like massage therapy and nutritional coaching, and more. Today we are excited to announce the next step in the evolution of Arkitect Fitness by welcoming Dr. Brett Scott to the team. Dr. Scott will be involved in both the coaching and treatment of the AF community, as well as overseeing other physical therapists that we are planning to bring on board.
Dr. Brett Scott founded Barbell Therapy & Performance in 2017. After working as a strength coach and personal trainer for seven years throughout his college career, Dr. Scott realized something was missing in the traditional physical therapy model during his clinical rotations. While working in the traditional physical therapy setting, he realized he didn’t have the time and resources to get his patients the best outcomes because profit and proficiency from a business standpoint surpasses patient outcomes. He felt like he was able to give his training clients more from a coaching and training setting where he had the time to educate people, provide hands on coaching and corrections, build stronger alliances and trust with clients, and had the ability to empower people to be in better control of their life.
