Work Systems Rehab & Fitness changes

Locally-owned Work Systems Rehab & Fitness, P.C. (Work Systems) is pleased to announce some important developments that will enable them and their collaborative business partners to best fulfill their mission to empower individuals with health solutions that enable them to get well and stay well.

As of January 1, 2014, Work Systems will sell its fitness assets to a new partnership group led by Mark Blankespoor, PT, DPT. This group, Pella Recreation Center (PRC), will continue to offer health, wellness and fitness services to residents in and around Pella, Iowa, the home of Work Systems’ corporate headquarters.

“The development of a new business, Pella Recreation Center,” said PRC’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Mark Blankespoor, “is exciting because it will allow other non-medical partners to invest in the strong fitness foundation that Work Systems has worked hard to develop over the last 11 years. The new business will be positioned to continue our great service that focuses on fun and effective programming for the entire family. It will also help us advance our popular group personal training programming through CrossFit 424, as well as our athletic development programming through an alignment with Game On Performance. The people we’re bringing on are the most important advancement, but the new building will be essential to help us provide sport-related programming that is currently not available in the town of Pella.”

The new 25,000 square foot building is set to open in the spring of 2014, says Blankespoor, and will have a large area covered by field turf, so sports programming and competitions will be offered for participants in all turf sports like baseball, soccer, and football. “The new space will be great for the community, but it will also be a huge asset to the patients we serve with physical therapy and occupational therapy needs,” says Troy Vander Molen, PT, DPT, the CEO & Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of Work Systems. “We’re thrilled to be able to serve people in a state-of-the-art facility that allows us to develop functional health solutions for our clients with all types of orthopedic, musculoskeletal conditions.”
