Scrambling to action, it is with great pleasure to announce that after just 1 week of being shut down, we will be opening the doors to our new clinic ‘The Abilities Recovery Center’ (ARC). The dedication of our clients has been tremendous. They have booked our schedules full for weeks, even though we don’t have any of the equipment they have been accustomed to using. Our clients have even agreed to do their therapies on the floor just in order to get back into their recovery program.
We are dipping into our own resources to acquire the necessary pieces of rehabilitation equipment to serve the needs of the clients. We are seeking any help in funding for the purchase of this vital equipment for their therapy.
The Abilities Recovery Center, located in Los Angeles, California, is a specialised clinic for clients with neurological conditions. ARC is committed to providing personalised and effective exercise based therapy to help clients reach their full recovery potential, whilst achieving optimal health and wellness.
My 75-year-old father was diagnosed with a rare spinal cord infection in late 2016 and we were told that he would never walk again. Not willing to accept this we started our journey to find a rehabilitation facility and were fortunate to find ARC. That’s when everything changed. During the initial evaluation, the trainers tested Dads abilities and challenged him to try things that other physical therapist didn’t want to try or felt he couldn’t do. He left the gym with the biggest smile on his face, it was priceless. We have attended their customized program for a few months now and have seen progress every single week. In last week session, Jeff challenged my dad to try to take a few steps and by the end of the session Dad was up to 16 steps with a walker. I couldn’t believe it. What I love about this team is they think outside of the box. They look at his progress and needs then make adjustments to help achieve his goals. Jeff, Leanne and Garret genuinely care about their clients and their wellbeing. I am and will be forever grateful for the ARC team, they are truly amazing people.

After suffering a spinal cord injury 8 years ago, I have attended multiple rehabilitation and treatment centers. None compare to the training and atmosphere of ARC. The progress I’ve made since working with the trainers Jeff, Leanne and Garret has given me hope and I look forward to what the future has to offer.

The staff at ARC are very innovative in their approach to therapy. Their knowledge, motivation and dedication to their clients is amazing! We have travelled from Michigan, TWICE in 3 months, just to work with them! They get results! This is where you need to be for the best chance at recovery, I will always be grateful for them.

Working with Jeff has been a life-changing experience. I've seen so much growth in my strength, flexibility and mobility. Jeff is creative, a great motivator, and very driven to get the best out of his clients. I look forward to working with him every week and continuing to make these great gains.

Best team of trainers who care about every one of their clients and families. My son is making milestones in his recovery, he's challenged and loves every minute of it. This is the place to be for recovery!

In the almost year and a half that my son Shaun has been working with these trainers, I have seen a great improvement in him. Working with these dedicated, loving, caring, compassionate and funny trainers has been a HUGE plus to his almost 11-year journey of traumatic brain injury. Once with them, he is out of his wheelchair and doing herculean things. Thank you Jeff, Leanne, Garret and Nyasha. We look forward to a long association, friendship and more miracles.

My experience working with Leanne an Jeff is nothing short of a godsend. I worked at other rehab facilities where they kept doing repetitive unenthusiastic exercises for me because they believed that my body had plateaued and they ran out of ideas to help me recover more motor function, and break the threshold to a whole new level. When I started working with Leanne and Jeff, they immediately had me doing rigorous yet creative exercises that challenged my body and ultimately made me way stronger than I ever could have anticipated. I know that the rest of my recovery journey will include the two of them because they have done more for my body than most trainers. I'm grateful that Jeff and Leanne created Abilities Recovery Center; so now I can continue working with them and we continue to push my body past the limits to achieve my ultimate goal, of me walking again and making a full recovery from my spinal cord injury.
