This coronavirus pandemic has created a lot of anxiety, worry, and heartache for many of us.
I am a big believer in this quote that I recently came across…
We need to continue to push forward if not for ourselves…we need to do it for our families and our children. Let’s be the role models our children will remember during these unprecedented times.
To that end, I am taking this opportunity to serve EVEN MORE of you!
To help you STAY ACTIVE, STAY HEALTHY & Improve YOUR IMMUNITY (and mental sanity) during this crisis together!
📍 That is why I have created the SPARK Online Fitness Community.
To help you continue to move forward in your health when most people are retracting with binging unhealthy snacks, Netflix and chill, and Disney + all day.
We are going to persevere together…and come out stronger on the other end of this together!
I will still continue to see my private clients at SPARK Physical Therapy virtually to help them continue to move forward, but this is an opportunity for all of us to work together.
Here is the best part…it is only $30/month
…and you can do it in the comfort and safety of your own home!
It doesn’t matter if you’re new to fitness, been working out on and off as a weekend warrior, or are a dedicated gym goer and runner 🏃🏻♀️…this program is for you.
This is how SPARK Physical Therapy is helping our running community out during these difficult times. We get after it every M,W,F at 6AM (different exercise program each day of the week)
For the 20 community members that were in our SPARK Fitness program in April they were able to catch the replay and get their real-time workout either during a lunch break or after work so they can as a runner for less than a cup of coffee per workout!
Jump into our community for the month of May…only if you want to continue moving forward with your health goals for 2020 (even during a global pandemic)
Simply, text “SPARK Fitness” to (203) 376-6514 for availability. Spots are limited, get yours before they run away!
Here is what one of our members of the SPARK Fitness Program said after 4 weeks of participating in April…
“Dr. Duane Scotti is professional and knows what he’s doing. I got to know him from his Facebook group “Healthy Runner”, where runners discuss about racing, nutrition, etc., especially injury recovery/prevention, among them including some experts such as Duane. I’ve been proactive asking questions to deal with minor injuries before they get serious and was lucky to go up to 90 miles per week and PRed my races without major injury.
It’s worth mentioning that Duane has developed a special online home fitness program during this pandemic, while the races are cancelled and outdoor runs are more limited. These programs are GREAT which covers different aspects including foam-rolling, mobility, stability, stretching and strengthening, so it’s a comprehensive package and a perfect hit for runners and active adults! Especially for runners who don’t do cross training or hate lifting weights (a vast majority lol).
Many runners hate lifting weights but that’s the essential way to prevent injury. I’ve been lifting weights and doing yoga before the running so I have a better understanding of the reason behind his workouts, making me more appreciate that Duane’s workout are well designed for runners! That’s why I highly recommend Duane’s program, which made it less intimidating and even fun and enjoyable to get stronger.”
We are going to persevere…and come out stronger on the other end of this TOGETHER as a running community!
Let’s bring our running community closer during these times.
In best health,

You can teach an old dog new tricks!!! I have never considered myself a runner and I knew I needed to be smart about it because I am no spring chicken. Spark preached getting strong and healthy to be injury free and they practice what they preach. I am soooo glad I made the investment in me! I finished my half marathon last weekend and couldn’t be any happier! The program fed me all the steps I needed to essentially learn how to run long distance, build strength, nutrition help, a forum of other runners and probably most important was the 1:1 coaching. I had no idea how to tackle training for a 1/2 marathon and this program broke all of it down, had it individualized for me and we tweaked as we went to make sure I was staying healthy and strong. I had so many questions the week prior to my race and Coach Cat was always there for me and answering all the questions and issues I had-and believe me there were a lot! The biggest benefit I think I got was the strength. I am strong and fit. But most important was what I gained emotionally. I built confidence and strength I didn’t know I had, even at my age. Honestly could not have done this without Spark Healthy Runners!
My Healthy Runner journey started after I had battled bilateral achilles pain for a few months and was frustrated how it affected my running. As soon as I talked to Duane I knew I had made the right decision. His positivity, enthusiasm and genuine care are infectious. The training plan that was tailored to me included specific exercises to rehab my injury and I was so excited that I didn’t have to stop running. It took patience to only run slow for a few weeks but I trusted the process and it got me me to where I am now: running pain free. We made adjustments to the plan throughout whenever needed having someone in your corner that is always there with guidance and support throughout the process was invaluable.
I just ran my second half marathon, both with Duane’s coaching, and PR’d by over 9 minutes! I got all choked up in the last mile when I realized that I felt strong and could still kick it up a notch.
I’m so thankful for the Healthy Runner program, community and the entire coaching team for all the support!
Wanting to run more consistently, and to increase my long run distance and total weekly mileage, I was concerned about hip pain due to hip alignment issues. This is an issue I had when I trained for my first half marathon several years ago. Having listened to the Healthy Runner podcast for the past couple years, I knew Duane Scotti could help. I signed up for the four-month strength and running training program and am extremely happy with the results.
The program Duane and Coach Whitney developed for me was exactly what I needed. It was tailored to my needs and to my target race. Coach Whitney was very helpful, and with the biweekly coaching calls, we were able to fine tune the program based off my performance and feedback.
At the end of the program, I completed a 10K trail race feeling strong and pain free.
I highly recommend Duane Scotti and the Healthy Runner training programs.
