"I have successfully been working with Jim Herkimer and the team from SCAR for several years. I have been re-built from the ground up after injuries and have been able to fully come back and compete at the highest level. I train at SCAR for both strength and conditioning while focusing on my core. As a pro cyclist with a very long season, strength and conditioning is vital for my success. Jim and his team have improved my range of motion and strength so well from my shoulder injuries, that they have far exceeded my orthopedic surgeon's expectations. SCAR has made me into a well balanced athlete and every time I go to SCAR I truly believe I leave a better athlete."
"Rehab from bilateral knee surgery is not an easy task. Jim and the staff at SCAR have turned rehab into an 'art form'. They have a way of catering exercises to every individual's needs. My legs and core, in general, are stronger. The exercises Jim has me do have even put an end to chronic lower back pain. I leave feeling tired and sore but feel great about having a good work out. Luckily, the tiredness and soreness go away. Then, I feel great!"
"I am very impressed by the attention to detail and the truly customized treatment and rehabilitation that Jim Herkimer and the whole PT staff provided. He is a top-notch professional - knowledgeable, supportive, and demanding in just the right way. Jim recognized when to make greater demands on me and when to let me maintain."

"The facility is one stop for strength training and rehabilitation for the inevitable injuries that plague athletes. When you first walk into SCAR you may be a frustrated runner, soccer player or weekend warrior, but when you are finished with your program there, you will feel like an athlete. The family atmosphere at SCAR makes clients feel welcome but amid the friendly banter, important things happen there. Jim Herkimer and his PT staff can not only fix what ails you, he can make you better, stronger and faster than you were before."
