Chris graduated from UC Davis with a BS in biochemistry and from USC with a doctorate in Physical Therapy. Chris’ main focus is in sports rehabilitation and working with golfers and swimmers. He’s a certified Pilates Instructor with BASI Pilates and a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) with the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA). In 2005 Chris started ATP’s Aquatic Therapy program at the Rose Bowl Aquatics Center in Pasadena, where he currently spends Tuesdays and Thursdays treating patients. Exercise is an important part of Chris’s daily activities and his weekly routine includes swimming, running, biking, Pilates and weight training. Chris’s passion is anything to do with water; he has worked as a PADI scuba diving instructor and still enjoys traveling and diving as much as possible. He is a South Pasadena resident and has two beautiful children, Amber and Ty. He and his wife Tracey opened ATP Training in 2002.
Betty joined the ATP team in December 2007. She grew up in the South Pasadena area but spent most of her career in the Inland Empire. She graduated from PT school in 1985 and spent her first three years honing her skills in neuro rehab at St. Mary Medical Center in Long Beach. Since then, her primary focus has been Orthopaedics. In 2004, she graduated from an APTA accredited Orthopaedic Manual Therapy Residency Program. In 2005, she became a Board Certified Specialist in Orthopaedics; and in 2015, became one of 552 individuals in the United States who recertified as specialists. She received her Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2014 after attending grad school at Western University of Health Sciences. Currently, Betty is working on her BASI Pilates Certification and is excited about expanding her toolbox of treatment options that an in- depth knowledge in Pilates offers. She is grateful to all of her past and present patients for all they have taught her, both clinically and philosophically.
