” I originally came in to get help for different pains and injuries I was experiencing, and after a week or so of working with Greg and his staff, my pain would begin to dwindle. After the first year of doing physical therapy, I transitioned into working out at Rebound and saw the results as quickly as the current season. During my sophomore year of high school, I placed 1st and 2nd at events during the IHSA Swimming State Championships.”

 

“I met Greg for the first time in 8th grade. Although I was involved in many different sports, I was referred to Rebound Fitness by a teammate from my swim team. A snowball effected started to occur, and many swimmers began coming in for workouts or rehab. I originally came in to get help for different pains and injuries I was experiencing, and after a week or so of working with Greg and his staff, my pain would begin to dwindle. After the first year of doing physical therapy, I transitioned into working out at Rebound and saw the results as quickly as the current season. During my sophomore year of high school, I placed 1st and 2nd at events during the IHSA Swimming State Championships. This was a major jump from my freshman year, during which I didn’t qualify for finals. The following year, I was overly confident about my ability to win and my motivation to put in the work decreased. I worked out at Rebound less than half the amount my junior year compared to my sophomore year and my performances at the state meet were affected as a result. I got 2nd in both events and left wanting much more. No later than a few weeks after the meet, I was back at Rebound ready to put in the work with Greg and Rennie. I came in no less than 3 times a week for 7 to 8 months. I gained a strong base- specifically targeting my core and overall endurance- to make sure I was prepared and in the best position possible for my Senior year. I was able to finish my high school career placing 1st in both my events and setting a state record by 2 seconds in one of the fastest events. Without the help of the entire staff at Rebound, I know my current career and success at Arizona University would be in such a different place, and the same goes for all athletes at Rebound Fitness & Rehabilitation.” – Sam Iida
