Kevin Pedrey said he is excited to offer a new business to the Sequim community that focuses on pain management, injury screening and movement.
His new business, Northwest Fitness LLC — at 720 E. Washington St., unit 108 — offers several programs that aim to teach individuals the principles of strength, mobility and self-care to help clients make better choices about their movement.
General business hours for the studio are 8 a.m.-6 p.m., Monday-Saturday, by appointment only.
“I’ve been working in the area for over seven years and the main reason I wanted to build this program is a lot of people come to me for pain management work and I realized I needed to help people start moving safely,” Pedrey said.
“A lot of fitness programs out here don’t see a lot of people doing screening to help people be injury free,” he said.
Pedrey noted that his new studio has been open since January and plans to do an open-house sometime in March. He previously practiced massage therapy and personal training at 360 Sports and prior to that owned Sequim Gym with his wife.
Three of the main programs Pedrey offers are: Pain Management; Movement and Injury Screening for Fitness and Mobility, and Self-Care Education.
He also offers a new program called Foundations of Health in Movement, a small group educational program that includes two-hour weekly sessions followed by additional resources for furthering and enhancing learning.
His main focus is on manual and movement therapy and his specialty is focused on pain management and functional movement to help individuals gain better mobility with self-care, strength and better movement without pain.
Pedrey has seven years of experience in movement and massage therapy and has created small group training for individuals interested in reducing pain in movement, gaining better strength and working toward remaining injury free during exercise.
“My manual therapy and massage work are geared toward helping people get out of pain and learning self-care and mobility,” Pedrey said. “It’s really hands-on and educational based.”
Pedrey’s programs use small group training of about five people and he also created 80 hours of curriculum to teach individuals the principles of strength in movement, mobility and self-care.
“It’s the bridge between getting people out of pain and into a program to safely start moving,” Pedrey said.
“I do see this in all levels, but primarily I work with people 45 to 50 and up, and a lot of older clientele.”
While this may be a new screening and injury prevention service to the area, Pedrey said his programs complement many other fitness businesses.
“What I love about this is it supports the other industries in this town,” he said.
“It supports other massage therapists, trainers, the physical therapy field, and I think it’s a good overall piece that is really needed in the community.”
