Run Your Own Race by Kate Wicker

October 27, 2014 in Blog, News by Horizon Physical Therapy  |  Comments Off

Local writer and runner Kate Wicker writes about running your own race and finding a greater purpose.

Whatever your reasons and goals for running are, or whether you actually ever run in an official event or not, run your own race. Competing can be fun, but it’s not about your pace or if you end up with a medal; it’s about the run itself and the fact that you were courageous enough to start.

Our very own Jimbo Wood and Carrie Hilley are both quoted in the article, which was featured in the October 2014 issue of Catholic Digest.

Alter-G Anti-Gravity Treadmill

October 1, 2013 in News by Horizon Physical Therapy  |  Comments Off

In an effort to better serve our patients as well as the greater Athens running community, we are excited to announce that we have purchased an Alter-G treadmill.  The Alter-G is a state-of-the-art anti-gravity treadmill that allows injured runners to run throughout the rehab process and allows healthy runners to train with less stress on their lower body and less risk of injury. The Alter-G has also become an integral training tool for many professional runners and triathletes due to its ability to assist runners with “overspeed training”.

Our Alter-G will be up and running on Tuesday, October 15.  We are currently selling punch cards good for 2 hours on the Alter-G.  The time may be broken down into 15 minute increments and used as you wish.  Also, runners may purchase individual sessions in 15 minute increments.  Additionally, runners may purchase a monthly Alter-G membership which is good for 5 hours of Alter-G run time per week for 4 weeks.

Runners who call on or before Friday, October 11, to schedule an Alter-G appointment will get 15 minutes free with no obligations.

Call 706-548-7300 today to schedule a time to run on the Alter-G.
