Fitness-Focused and Business Expertise Talks with Dr. Josh Funk
Hosted by

Today on Pass the Secret Sauce, I got to interview Dr. Josh Funk, the CEO and founder of  Rehab2Perform, a fitness-focused physical therapy company that was named back to back in the Inc 5000 as one of the fastest-growing private companies in the US. 

Dr. Funk is a lifelong athlete, and after avoiding shoulder surgery for a torn labrum and rotator cuff, he has been entrenched in the world of physical therapy and sports performance. Over the years, he has continually developed his knowledge base and expertise as a physical therapist through continuing education courses and working with athletes of all ages.

In addition to his physical therapy expertise, Dr. Funk has been equally, if not more committed to the growth of his role as CEO of Rehab2Perform. He has made sure that his personal development is not just reserved for the clinical side of things, but also to ensure that Rehab 2 Perform is one of the most well-run and well-known health care companies in the area. 

Dr. Funk has immersed himself in business programs and community initiatives over the past few years in his efforts to ensure that the team and clients of Rehab2Perform are receiving everything they need to be at their best. It is his goal to push Rehab2Perform to the forefront of the community through innovation, progressive business operations, strategic growth, and clinical excellence.
