Heal injuries, increase your overall fitness level, and prevent unforeseen bumps in the road with today's deal. For $30, you get $60 worth of healing fitness services at Focus Physical Therapy + Fitness (FocusPTF). The center is located about 45 minutes outside of downtown Charlotte in Lake Wylie. Within the walls of this state-of-the-art facility, pain and injury are extracted from muscles and joints using targeted exercises as a form of futuristic therapy. The groupon is good for any of their services in any combination, and you can mix and match different sessions.
Increase agility and mobility to Stretch Armstrong proportions with a neuromuscular stretch and massage ($50). It's 15 minutes of stretching coupled with 20 minutes of massage for a total of 35 minutes of limbering relief. Or you could elect to undergo a more standard massage by licensed therapists, who will melt muscles better than a microwave and knead knots with their skillful handiwork. A 30-minute massage is $40 and an hour-long massage is $65.
The center also offers a variety of enhancing sports performance treatments. The ATM2 smart exercise sports performance is a form of strength training used by pro athletes ($30/session). Learn how to stretch like a cat, run like Prefontaine, and uproot trees from the ground like an angry eagle. Set your body abuzz with Power Plate training, which taps into the body's natural response to earthquakes to balance bodies, increase circulation, and boost metabolism ($35/session). Or harness the power of yoga to realign your body. Power yoga sessions help to coordinate breathing, agility, and strength, while yoga stretch classes are a gentle and relaxing escape to improve flexibility and range of motion.

Three past clients on Facebook give Focus Physical Therapy and Fitness five stars.
- My foot doctor told me that there were "no excersizes" [sic] I could do to help with my tarsal tunnel syndrome (like carpal tunnel, but in my feet). Fortunately, Rich and Lori knew better. Six visits to the foot doctor = nothing. Six visits to Focus PTF = new feet. I'm back to running at my pre-injury speed and distance... and doing my excersizes [sic] every night. – David, Facebook
- Smart and professional. Rich is perhaps the most knowledgeable physical therapist I have ever been to. Had a great session - will absolutely be back. – Mike, Facebook
