Rita Chorba is passionate about human performance and keeping athletes strong and resilient. After struggling with a running injury in college and failing to find resolution through available healthcare channels, she shifted her academic and practical training towards finding her own solution (with success!)

Along the journey, Rita earned a bachelor’s degree in exercise science from Baldwin Wallace University, a master’s degree in physical therapy from Cleveland State University, a master’s degree in athletic training from the University of Findlay, and a doctorate in physical therapy from Texas Tech University. She holds credentials as a physical therapist (PT), athletic trainer (ATC), and strength coach (CSCS), and is certified in musculoskeletal sonography (RMSK). She is fellowship-trained in human movement assessment and root cause analysis of musculoskeletal pain and injury through Functional Movement Systems.

Rita began her professional career at the University of Arizona, serving as Head Athletic Trainer for Track and Field and Cross Country. She transitioned from a career in sports to serving the active duty military population as a direct access civilian physical therapist. During her time with US Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command, Rita served as Lead Tactical Physical Therapist for 2nd Marine Raider Battalion, and Lead Tactical Physical Therapist for the Marine Raider Training Center aboard Camp Lejeune, NC. She currently works with helicopter aviators and crew of the US Army Special Operations Command.

Rita’s work has been featured in several publications, including the International Journal of Sports Physical Therapy, the Journal of Special Operations Medicine, the International Society of Sports Nutrition, and the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research. She is a contributing columnist to the US Marine Raider Association Raider Patch Magazine and writes about maintaining physical resilience for career longevity.

Rita has worked diligently to hone a craftsman approach to human performance by integrating a variety of disciplines, including kinesiology, sports medicine, motor learning, and  learning theory. A lifelong student at heart, she is continuously growing and adapting her methods to ensure effective and personalized results for her clients.
