EQ Fitness and Physical Therapy was started by brother and sister duo Wes Newsom and Kate Newsom in August 2021. Wes is the head trainer of the group fitness, Kate is the physical therapist, and Wes’ wife, Harley, helps with EQ Kids Care staffing. Both Kate and Wes wanted to create a space where their clients and employees felt seen, heard, and encouraged every time they walked through the door.
Gyms and physical therapy clinics can be intimidating places for people to enter, but Kate and Wes don’t feel like it has to be that way. They work hard to get to know each and every one of their clients and their families in order to learn how to best motivate them to stay active and healthy. The group fitness clients aren’t required to attend physical therapy, and physical therapy clients aren’t required to be fitness members, but Kate and Wes believe when both are done together their clients get the best results.
