Our history

Keri and RebeccaPeak Fitness and Physical Therapy was created by Rebecca Wykle and Keri Todd in 2011. At that time, both Keri and Rebecca were actively searching for employment opportunities as physical therapists in the Chattanooga area. They were looking for therapy jobs where the employer emphasis was placed on patient outcomes and satisfaction, instead of primarily on productivity and profit. They were unable to find what they were looking for. This search, as well as their past job experiences in Chattanooga, fueled their belief that the Chattanooga community needed and deserved a different approach to therapy. They created a company with the ultimate goal of placing the patient/client’s needs first and offering services that provide for the whole patient, with empathetic and professional care.
