After years of working as physical therapists in the Boston area, Joint Ventures co-owners Dan Brownridge and Dave Larson noticed one major aspect missing from in most clinics—a personal relationship between the healer and patient. The duo created Joint Ventures in an effort to bring those strong relationships to their community through advanced integrated healthcare clinics where each patient gets optimal one-on-one time with their physical therapists. At all seven locations, Dan and Dave’s more than 55 practitioners craft detailed treatment plans using the facility's four-lane pools and cardio and weight machines, including therapies ranging from acupuncture to massage, yoga, or personal training. Throughout each patient’s therapy, the team of practitioners keeps their interpersonal skills on point with regular meaningful patient-therapist conversations that end with the pair weaving BFF bracelets from each others’ hair.
As natural light streams through the windows, members at Fisique Fitness run on treadmills equipped with their own screens, take to Cybex elliptical machines, and make the rounds on strength-training equipment. In group exercise classes, instructors lead cardio-centric spinning workouts or model mindful breathing during Vinyasa yoga's flow of poses. Dedicated personal trainers take things up a notch, pushing their clients past a plateau or preparing them for the arm-wrestling portion of a corporate job interview. After workouts, members can hit the showers equipped with convenient toiletries or plunk down on one of the lobby’s leather armchairs.
In addition to providing chiropractic treatments and physical-therapy sessions, Fisique Fitness partners with Joint Ventures to offer a menu of spa services that includes massage and acupuncture.
