RAINELLE, WV.  Dr. Gregory S. Syvertson and Barbara A. Syvertson cut the ribbon on their brand new Masterworks Physical Therapy and Sports Rehab Fitness Center in Rainelle.  The 2,300 square foot facility is located at 394 John Raine Drive in the Park Center.

Dr. Syvertson earned a B. S. in Physical Therapy from Tennessee State University in Nashville, Tennessee and his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of New England.   He grew up in Montana’s Big Sky area.  He served four years as a Paratrooper, Air Assault and Repel Master in the 101st Airborne Division in the U.S. Army at Fort Campbell Kentucky and Ayers Kaserne “The Rock” in Kirchgoens West Germany.

Dr. Syvertson is a Certified Clinical Instructor through the American Physical Therapy Association.  He currently instructs students from the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine, Mountain State University’s PTA Program, and is working on adding PT/PTA programs from Marshall University, West Virginia University, Fairmont State University, and Wheeling Jesuit University.

“We have been providing outpatient physical therapy services in Rainelle since 2004,” Dr. Syvertson said.  “We hope that this new fitness center will make a positive impact on the community through rehabilitation, health and wellness.”  Syvertson said that Masterworks Fitness Center’s motto is “bringing form & function back into lives.”

Memberships are available for all ages and physical conditions.  Memberships range from $7.00 for a one day pass as well as six-month and annual contracts.  Memberships are encouraged from all age groups, from students to young adults to adults to seniors.  Family plans are available.  Private training sessions help customize fitness regimes.

“People from all around the world and the surrounding counties, such as: Greenbrier, Fayette, Summers and Nicholas, all enjoy the easy access to our PT services because of our centralized and convenient location,” Dr. Syvertson said.  “They also are drawn to our small town American “Welcome” that they receive when they step through our doors.”

The Fitness Center is open Monday through Friday from 5:30 a.m. until 9:00 p.m., on Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and on Sunday from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

“We are glad to see the Fitness Center offer an additional way for our people to stay healthy,” Mayor Andrea J. Pendleton said.  “It is also encouraging to see a new business make an investment in our town.”

Pendleton said that her family had tried to bring the Greenbrier Valley YMCA to Rainelle.  “Several years ago my family gave the 18m000 square foot building that used to be our father’s store and later was the Helig Meyers store to the Y,” Pendleton said.  “It was disappointing that the Y never offered services in Rainelle and now the building is tied up in the Y’s bankruptcy.”
