Fitness Quest Physical Therapy-Sarasota (Downtown)

About Our Location

Fitness Quest Physical Therapy, that is located in Downtown Sarasota, was the original location opened in 1998.  Founded by Jason Nippert, the Sarasota clinic was originally started as an Exercise Physiology based operation. Its focus was on the areas athletes, but later expanded to offer Physical Therapy after realizing the need in the area.  It is because of that expansion, the continued growth of Fitness Quest as a Physical Therapy company came to be.  Now not only do we serve Sarasota county, but Manatee, Charlotte and Lee counties as well.
