Welcome to DPT Fit – Dependable Practical Total Fitness!

Dancers are some of the hardest working and most dedicated athletes out there. Many are dancing through pain without relief, being taught outdated methods of overstretching, still doing mostly crunches for their core, being told to “turn off” muscles, and not prioritizing injury prevention. With our “Total Fitness” approach to your care and progress, we strive to keep you performing and moving forward no matter where you start your journey with us. Dancers are our specialty and every product we offer is designed to meet your needs!
