Why Tidewater? We understand that some people train for sport. Some for play. Everyone trains for life.
In 1986, Tidewater Physical Therapy joined the community. For 25 years, the community has trusted Tidewater’s clinicians to help return you to an active life. Now, let Tidewater Performance help you live that life stronger.
Whether you’re working to be stronger for your family, to run faster in your next race, win by a larger margin in Friday’s game or climb your first mountain, the Tidewater Performance Center has the tools to get you there. The most important piece of equipment we have is you. Literally.
Prepare yourself – when you walk into Tidewater’s Performance Center, you won’t see rows and rows of treadmills. You will see jump ropes, Kettlebells, TRX straps, balance balls, foam rollers, a large-open space, Bosu balls and much more.
Todd Durkin – a two-time personal trainer of the year and Head of the Under Armour Performance Training Council – called Tidewater the “best in the business” and said “if I was there, I’d be seeing you guys there, too.”
Tidewater Performance is a division of Tidewater Physical Therapy, Inc. Tidewater was founded more than 25 years ago to support the active work, play and daily living needs of people in the communities we call home. The out-patient physical therapy practice is owned by local area physical therapists who are as dedicated to clinical excellence as they are passionate about sports medicine, fitness enthusiasts and athletic performance. They understand it personally, with all of them remaining active in the community, two of the four partners having played football for the College of William and Mary and another holding a Master of Education degree in Athletic Training.
Why Tidewater? We trust in the science of training and understand how your body moves.
The Tidewater Performance Center offers state-of-the-art trainer-led LIFE (fitness), WORK and SPORTS performance services. TRAINER-LED is the key. Overwhelming evidence supports trainer-led programs. Competent trainers markedly improve compliance with exercise programs and ultimately long-term results.
Why Tidewater trainers? Let’s face it. It’s all about the WHO.
Tidewater’s team of trainers are degreed and diversely certified experienced fitness and sports performance experts. Studies show that the majority of personal fitness trainers do not have college degrees. The education and certifications of Tidewater’s trainers are key. They are committed to fitness enthusiasts and athletes of all ages. Not only do they know how to train you, but they also know how the body works. They will work you to your highest level of safe intensity. The Performance Center and its trainers are co-located with the Tidewater Physical Therapy, Inc. Oyster Point Clinic. Therapists and athletic trainers are on hand and available to every Performance client. Pain free first…then performance!
Why Tidewater programs? Every program is trainer-led and highly personalized – from one-on-one training to group fitness.
Tidewater is proud to offer fitness and sports performance services that range from 1:1 personal training, 2-3:1 semi-private training and 3-12:1 group training. What does this mean to you? No matter what trainer-led program you participate in, you will receive personalized attention. You’ll learn proper form. You’ll participate in the activities you love. You’ll get off the treadmill and in on a training experience like no other in Hampton Roads. Athletes of all ages will explode, accelerate and become more agile. Fitness enthusiasts will realize just how much they can do and be inspired to set new goals!
