about

Our fitness levels differ. So do our abilities.

Look around. We’re tall, short, old, young, injured, athletic, thin, robust. At Mettler, we don’t approach fitness as “one size fits all.” We focus on your unique abilities and personal goals to formulate a fitness plan that’s best for you. We combine ways to improve your body, adopt healthy eating habits, and reach for that elusive balance of life. We call it whole-life fitness: building your mind, body, and soul.

Founded by physical therapist Paul Mettler, PT, DPT in 1990 on principles of personalized care and positive results, the Mettler Center has evolved to become an important player in rehabilitative care in the Champaign-Urbana community. We provide innovative physical therapy so you can get over your pain, injury, or physical-mobility problem and get back to your life.

But that's not all we do. Over the years we've come to develop our philosophy of whole-life fitness. We've built our services and expertise around this concept, and offer a wide variety of opportunities—including group exercise classes, one-on-one personal training, nutrition consultations, weight loss programs, rehabilitative fitness sessions, medical services, massage therapy, and more. All of this combines together with our award-winning physical therapy offerings to provide you with the best in whole-life fitness.
