We are ramping up for our fall session of Fit to Fight! The fall session starts on September 5th, and there are still spots available!
Fit to Fight is a local exercise based cancer support program. We meet twice per week during the sessions at Peak Health and Wellness Center at 5000 Blue Mountain Road.
The small organized group exercise sessions include individual tailoring. Each session consists of stretching, breathing & relaxation, resistive strengthening, and endurance training.
Sessions are designed and supervised by a physical therapist from Alpine Physical Therapy. Call 406-251-2323 or visit our website fittofightmt.org for more information.
Peter wanted to return to serious backcountry skiing, mountaineering, and backpacking – all upright activities with bipedal movement. At the point that the CoreAlign was released Peter was primed to increase his training in a standing position. Peter had such a strong foundation of movement, control, balance, and flexibility that CoreAlign was the next level that offered exactly what he needed for his long-term rehabilitation goals. It was truly after using CoreAlign that we saw Peter returning to long days of ski touring, deep Alaskan backpack trips, and even surfing!
When I start to feel my age, do I accept it? Heck no! I get scheduled with Mary Mischke, DPT, at Alpine Physical Therapy. You see I am over 70 now (yeah, that sounds weird to me too), but I refuse to stop going. I won't stop playing, working, relaxing, traveling, or learning.
I had to call Mary recently after going through the summer full force; my body was needing a tune up. The Downtown Alpine PT crew got me set up, and in no time I learned about how to best keep my body going (I think this time it was my knee).
This past weekend I was able to spread two full truck beds of gravel by myself and had time to get in my first stand up paddle board lesson (the proof is in the pictures below)!
Thanks to Mary and the folks at Alpine PT for keeping me young because I just won't stop, especially to just get old!

Hi Fives to Matthew Schweitzer and Jeff Soulia for being our newest Uber Duber Super Stars at Alpine Physical Therapy.
As the Downtown clinic manager, Matt has been busy keeping the rocking rolling going over the last six month as we had PT students, new staff, maternity leaves, and surgeries.
He took on the craziness of our transition to our new EMR. He helped answer questions, dealt with frustrations, and listened well while troubleshooting potential challenges.
Matt brings the fun to Alpine whether its his funky socks or his quick wit - he always finds a way to brighten the day of those around him.
Matt knows how to keep a smile at all times and is always cracking jokes to make the downtown crew laugh!
Matt just completed the Coeur d’Alene Ironman Triathlon last month, all while treating local other athletes gearing up for similar events in the region. Nice work Matt. You are definitely an IRONMAN of ALPINE!!
Jeff initiated Alpine’s commuter challenge, giving us some extra exercise, endorphins, and vitamin D, which is helping us manage our EMR transition better.
He was really helpful (along with all north PTs) as we worked through a tough patient presentation and came up with a sound plan of care.
When a colleague needed a little extra guidance on new EMR and Jeff had time he pitched in to help her out.
Jeff’s really good at off-handed remarks that change your facial expression . . . a smile or a look of confusion, but either way, it keeps it interesting.
We can always tell when he got some extra time with Eleanor in the middle of the night because his hair is just a little bit crazier!
Hi Fives, Gents. And thanks for all you do to help make Alpine PT the best of the best!
